WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY

Spending two weeks staying in two sites was really good... it meant far less packing and repacking and less fatigue. Our group was very congenial, and that was one of the high points if not the high point of our trip.

At the crossroads of the Mediterranean, Sicily reflects a fascinating blend of cultural influences—from the Greeks, Romans, Moors, and Normans to later civilizations. Explore this fascinating island from two locations, staying in the upscale hotels of the Mercure Palermo Excelsior City in Palermo and the Grand Hotel Mazzaro Sea Palace in Taormina.

Highlights Include
  • Palermo and Environs: Stand in wonder before amazing mosaics in Palermo’s Palatine Chapel and Monreale’s stunning cathedral. Venture to the historic medieval hill town of Erice where you’ll see the Castle of Venus and panoramic sea views. Discover the picturesque fishing village of Cefalù, home to one of Italy’s most important Romanesque cathedrals.
  • Taormina and Environs: En route to Taormina, explore the Greek temples of Agrigento and the Roman Villa of Casale at Piazza Armerina. During your stay along Taormina’s beach, take the cable car to visit the upper village and the famed Greek Theater. In the ancient Greek town of Syracuse, once a strong rival of Athens, tour the Old Town of Ortygia and the archaeological park with a Greek theater and Roman amphitheater with perfect acoustics.
  • Enrichment Program: Learn about Sicily’s crossroads of cultures and learn about prize-winning virgin olive oil during lunch at a family farm.
