Over twelve terrific nights this June, explore sensational Sicily - the largest island in the Mediterranean. Located just over ten nautical miles from mainland Italy, Sicily is a land of ancient traditions that has been a crossroad of civilisation throughout the ages. A magical melting pot of culture with a fascinating history to match, discover it all on this comprehensive tour, whilst enjoying the company of other solo travellers. After taking advantage of Saga's included UK door-to-door travel service to the airport, fly to Catania and begin your Sicilian adventure with a three-night stay in Noto.
Discover the city’s glorious baroque architecture on an included guided walk and take a scenic drive into the stunning baroque south-east of the island, visiting the historic towns of Ragusa and Modica. Travelling to the north, enjoy three nights in the island’s exotic capital of Palermo. With its glorious coastal setting and rich history, it’s a Mediterranean city unlike any other. During your time in Palermo, you’ll also enjoy an included excursion to Monreale, where its breath-taking cathedral is one of the great sights of Norman Sicily. Next on your expertly-crafted itinerary is Mazara del Vallo on the west coast, where an included walking tour will introduce you to this Arab-influenced town. You may also like to join one of the optional tours, whether it be a wine-tasting session and lunch at a restored typical rural farmhouse or a lagoon boat trip to see historic windmills and the coastal town of Marsala of fortified wine fame. Your final three nights in Sicily will be spent in Giardini Naxos, which is set on an attractive bay and backed by magnificent Mount Etna. Get a feel for local life on a guided walk of Catania and perhaps take an optional excursion that visits Mount Etna and the beautiful resort town of Taormina. Taking in towns brimming with baroque architecture and exploring picturesque landscapes filled with fragrant olive groves and vineyards, majestic mountains and enchanting coasts, this fantastic tour represents the perfect way to explore stunning Sicily.
