Splendors Of Sicily (Small Group Tours Available)

Sicily is eventful, exotic, intriguing and fascinating in every aspect. The biggest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily captivates from the start with its legendary tales, art, history and time-honored traditions. On Sicily, travelers can embrace the island’s mystique…from the fascinating city of Palermo, the enchanted beauty of Taormina and the majestic ruins of the ancient Greek city of Agrigento, to archeological treasures of Syracuse, plus much more! In Sicily’s capital city, Palermo, among the many distinguished palaces and monuments, visit Monreale’s Benedictine Abbey and admire its outstanding mosaics. This escorted Italy vacation tour package takes you to delve into the enchanted beauty of Taormina’s Greek-Roman amphitheater with its spectacular views of Giardini di Naxos and to see Mt. Etna, the largest active volcano in Europe. Embark on a fascinating tour of Agrigento’s famed Valley of the Temples. The Theban poet Pindar described the temples as “the most beautiful city built by mortal men.” All the temples were built in Doric style and face east so that the statue of the god housed in each temple would see the rising sun. Your Sicily Italy tour package also includes the opportunity to take in the town of Modica known for its Baroque architecture and chocolate still made in the traditional way, and to explore Noto, part of the “Late Baroque Towns of the Val di Noto.” Further along, have a once in a lifetime experience as you journey on this captivating Italy vacation package to the towns where “The Godfather” trilogy was filmed: Savoca and D’Agro Valley.
