Sicily, the ball to Italy's boot, offers an ecclectic mix of history art and culture that have shaped this fascinating volcanic Mediterranean island. From the Ancient Romans and Greeks, as well as Byzantine, Moorish and European rule, we'll discover temples, mosaics and bustling markets that give Sicily its unique flavour.
The striking Mount Etna dominates the landscape of the eastern edge of the island and from our base in the seaside town of Taormina, we explore the region. Making our way west to Palermo, the island's capital, we discover ancient mosaics, some of the best preserved temples in the world, glistening golden cathedrals and gorgeous countryisde. And in our final stop, Palermo, we delve into Sicilian life, full of colour, flavour and noise as we wander the streets of the bustling town and its lively markets, opulent palaces and grand theatres. A fanatastic way to round off your time in Italy.
