Sicily Grand Tour

Per Person From US$9,995The Crossroads of Cviilizations

Long overlooked by the North American traveller in favour of other Italian destinations, 'The White Lotus' has served to put Sicily on the travel map, and deservedly so. The Mediterranean's largest island is also its richest in every way: geographically, historically, architecturally, culinarily, and oenologically. From Mt. Etna to the Eolian Islands, Greek temples to Byzantine churches, delicious caponata to cannoli paired with a Marsala, its wonders dominate the senses. This Grand Tour will take you from east to west, experiencing all that Sicily has to offer.
