What You’ll Love…

The Tour – Ancient ruins, volcanic remains, cobbled streets and local Mediterranean cuisine

Travel to the hilltop town of Monreale to visit the Norman Cathedral, an architectural masterpiece, with its interior of glittering 12th-century Byzantine mosaics.

Tour Palermo’s ancient Old City with its incredible mix of architectural styles, including its magnificent Cathedral.

Drive the winding roads to mountaintop Erice, a wonderfully preserved medieval town with breathtaking views and a great historical presence. Walk along the cobbled streets lined with superb examples of Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance architecture. Savor the island's landmark windmills and salt mines before reaching a local farm. Your lunch will feature some of the area's local delicacies, including extra virgin olive oil and wine.

Discover Agrigento's celebrated Valley of the Temples, the largest and best-preserved temple ruins outside of mainland Greece. Tour this magnificent archaeological park that consists of eight Greek temples, built between 430 and 510 B.C., all majestically positioned in the same area on rocky crests south of modern day Agrigento.

Visit the lava-crusted slopes of Mt. Etna, which stands at 11,000 feet tall, dominates the scenery, and is the most active volcano in Europe. Ascend the mount to reach the Silvestri Craters; step carefully on the varied layers of lava which have solidified over the centuries.

View the intricate examples of Roman mosaics at the famous Roman Villa del Casale, a designated UNESCO World Heritage site. These extraordinarily vivid mosaics deal with numerous subjects, ranging from Homeric escapades and mythological scenes to portrayals of daily life.
