Sicily has been a natural intersection for travelers and explorers, who left their mark on local life. Delve into Sicily’s epic past while staying in western, central and eastern areas of the island. Walk in the footsteps of ancient Greeks and Romans as you discover the well-preserved remnants of their civilizations. Admire the architectural legacy of Gothic, Moorish and Norman conquerors. Marvel at the remarkable mosaics of the Villa Romana del Casale and the extensive collection of baroque architecture in Modica and Ragusa. Explore medieval Taormina, where Mount Etna stands in the distance, and Syracuse, an ancient Greek city. Savor the flavors of Sicily at a family farm, where award-winning olive oil is produced. Enjoy first-class accommodations in Palermo, Caltagirone and Taormina. In Caltagirone, stay at a unique hotel and spa on an organic farm, and savor meals created with freshly harvested produce. This small-group program features engaging excursions, expert guides and an extensive meal plan plus wine with dinner.
