The Mediterranean’s largest island, Sicily is a diverse outpost once ruled by ancient Greeks, the Phoenicians, Arabs, French and Spanish, just to name a few. Immerse yourself in Sicily’s myths, legends and tumultuous past while staying in first-class accommodations in three different areas: Palermo, Caltagirone and Taromina. In bustling Palermo, explore ancient landmarks and its liveliest market. See medieval castles in Erice, a Doric temple in Segesta, and Agrigento’s Valley of the Temples. Feast your eyes on brilliant Roman mosaics at Villa Romana del Casale and hand-painted majolica ceramics in Caltagirone. Witness awe-inspiring views of the coast in Taormina. In Syracuse, see the well-preserved ancient theater and wind your way through the elegant lanes of Old Town. Lunch at an olive oil farm, learn how to make Sicilian pizza, and discuss Sicily’s agriculture, cuisine and its Mafia legacy with local experts. This eight-night, small-group program features an extensive meal plan and wine with dinner.
