Sicily is a melting pot of dialects, styles of architecture, and foods. It is a journey within a journey. In the radius of just a few miles, you can visit an example of Greek architecture, a , you can see buildings created in the majestic Sicilian Baroque style and medieval castles; you can enjoy azure seas and the tallest active volcano in Europe. Sicily never ceases to amaze.
We will be happy to build a trip for you that suits all your needs. All our hotels have been personally selected, we use our own trusted guides, our drivers are professional, and the innate hospitality of Sicilians will make you want to come back! If you only have one week available, we’ll organize a trip for you in either the eastern, western, or northern part of Sicily.
But if you happen to have more days available we suggest a mix of the most beautiful locations. Palermo, the capital of the region, is the ideal starting point with its international airport. The city and its hints of Middle Eastern architecture, Norman wonders, Renaissance homes, and baroque churches, will welcome you warmly. It is a unique city where you can enjoy a “summary” of the island. From here we will head to Agrigento, one of the most important cities of the ancient Greek empire and still famous today for the ancient architectural site, the Valley of the Temples. We will then continue on to picturesque Taormina, which looks out over the sea, and then to Syracuse, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We will then accompany you to the eastern part of the island: Noto and Ragusa capture the beauty of the Sicilian Baroque. You will explore the Etna volcano with our expert guides and you will be able to taste exquisite wines, honey, and the world famous Bronte pistachios. At the end of the journey, we will accompany you back to Palermo or Catania with a private driver, so that you can leave from one of the international airports on the island.
