AN EXPERIENTIAL JOURNEY THROUGH AUTHENTIC SICILIAN CULTURE, HISTORY & CULINARY DELIGHTS
 
Discover the Best of Sicily along the coast, through extravagant scenic beauty of diverse magical landscapes, archaeological richness, winemaking traditions and gastronomic delights coming from a multicultural crossroad of over 3000 years of history. Here, the Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Spaniards, and French have all influenced the land contributing to Sicily’s cultural wealth and rich heritage.
 
This tour takes you to Sicily’s most important towns from beautiful Taormina to the vibrant streets of Palermo, and to many more enchanting Sicilian towns of beautiful Terre Sicane, seaside villages along the coast, and slopes of Mt Etna.
 
Delve into the Sicilian lifestyle with a layered culinary history and deep-rooted award-winning winemaking traditions in Avola, Etna, Ceresuola di Vittoria, Marsala, Etna, and so much more.
 
Marvel at the rich 5th BC archaeological ruins of a powerful city in antiquity Siracusa/Ortygia. Stay in the UNESCO Baroque town of Noto where atmospheric backstreets and important architectural buildings will stun. Visit nearby Modica and partake in a special private chocolate lesson at a boutique chocolate maker and create the famous chocolate according to the ancient Aztec recipe. Stroll the labyrinthine streets of Ragusa/Ragusa Ibla and the towns of a contemporary writer Andrea Camilleri's Inspector Montalbano to see Sicilian culture truly coming to life.
 
A private expertly led guided tour of the brilliant Roman floor mosaics in Villa del Casale in Piazza Armerina and the Hellenistic Temples of Juno and Hercules in the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento await. Visit the largest archaeological park in Europe, Selinunte, once the most eminent city of Magna Grecia.
 
Travel along the charming Salt Road (Via del Sale) to see its numerous windmills and salt pans in a protected oasis and tour the island of San Pantaleo for a captivating archaeological tour of the ancient Phoenician military power and trading center of Mothia. Visit one of the most beautiful coastal towns of Sicily, Marzememi with its rich tonnara (tunery) fishing history.
 
In Monreale, our expert guide will show us the world’s best Byzantine mosaics and in Palermo some of the most fascinating cultural gems. A cable-car ride up to the village of Erice, where the cobblestone streets are filled with the aroma of almond pastries.
