Over eight unforgettable days, explore evocative landscapes sweeping down to pretty seaside towns, Roman villas overloaded with art treasures and Mount Etna - Europe's most imposing active volcano, on this escorted tour through sensational Sicily.
Your mesmerising Mediterranean adventure begins with a three-night stay in the picturesque coastal village of Giardini Naxos, situated close to the fascinating town of Taormina. During your time here, visit the magnificent Greco-Roman theatre or simply soak up the lovely views of the sea and the island's famous Mount Etna. You’ll also enjoy some refreshing granita tasting – a semi-frozen dessert that originated here and comes in many delicious flavours. On day three, join an optional excursion to Sicily’s most famous attraction, Mount Etna, and ascend Europe's tallest active volcano by cable car for some seriously breath-taking views. You'll also have a further option to take a thrilling journey higher up the volcano in a 16-seater 4x4 vehicle in the company of an Alpine guide. Leaving Giardini Naxos behind, it’s on to your next base of Campofelice di Roccella, near the pretty fishing port of Cefalù, taking in the Roman Villa del Casale en route. Visit the beautiful Monreale cathedral, which is one of the world’s greatest examples of Norman architecture, and Sicily's vibrant capital of Palermo, where you'll be treated to a street food experience in a local bar. The next day, choose to relax by the pool or on the beach, or perhaps join an optional excursion to the ancient town of Agrigento, before a day in picturesque Cefalù. There's plenty to discover here, including its winding medieval streets, sandy beaches and one of Sicily's finest Norman cathedrals. With incredible savings of £1,000 per person available, there’s never been a better time to discover the beauty and history of glorious Sicily.
