Sicily Tours



There is no other place quite like Sicily. Located just off the southern tip of Italy in the center of the Mediterranean, Sicily is an island forged by many cultures. Through the ages a steady stream of peoples have left their mark, including the Greeks, Romans, Arabs, and Normans. Yet Sicily remains an island unique unto itself-a beautiful collision of the past and present-a melting pot of great Mediterranean traditions full of
magnificent artwork, architecture, and folklore, plus an amazing bounty of archeological remains including two of the best-preserved Greek Temples in the world.

The many facets of Sicily’s rich cultural heritage can be discovered in the style and design of the ancient amphitheaters, breathtaking cathedrals, intricate mosaics, baroque palaces, and dramatic churches.

SICILY ART & ARCHAEOLOGY TOUR
During our Sicily tour, visit many of the island’s spectacular Greek ruins as well as its rugged coastline. Day trips include an excursion to the splendid medieval town of Cefalù as well as the ancient Greek temples of
Agrigento, a guided tour to view the beautiful mosaics at the famous Villa del Casale in Piazza Armerina, and plenty of time to explore and relax in the spectacular resort town of Taormina. Other highlights on our tours to
Sicily include an excursion in Caltagirone where one might shop for ceramics, one of the typical Sicilian crafts; travel to Buscemi, a living history museum depicting life in the early 1800’s; a guided walking tour
in Siracusa to see the outstanding archaeological park; and a wine tasting and lunch at a winery situated on the slopes of Mount Etna.

SICILY SHORE EXCURSIONS

Have just a day to explore the island? We can arrange shore excursions in Sicily.

Mount Etna: Take a tour through the beautiful landscape and view the stunning flora and fauna surrounding Mount Etna, the world famous volcano in Sicily.

Taormina: Visit the renowned vacation resort located on top of a cliff overlooking the Ionian Sea. See the Greek Theater, known for its stunning location, and stroll along Corso Umberto, Taormina’s main street that’s off-limits to cars and has restaurants, cafés, and world-class shops.

Palermo: See the ornately decorated Cappella Palatina, part of the Palazzo Normanni. The chapel combines western and Arab styles. Visit the Quattro Canti, which marks the center of town, the elaborate fountain in Piazza Pretoria (once known as the Fountain of Shame because of the nude statues), the Arab-Norman church of San Cataldo, and the church of La Martorana (from which the name of marzipan candy is derived).
