The Treasures of Sicily

Explore the Mediterranean’s historical wonderland

Open a door to the ancient world and step out onto a sun drenched island rich in history and natural wonders. Walk in the footsteps of Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans as you wander through majestic Greek temples, Roman amphitheatres and the cobbled piazzas of the Baroque towns of Sicily.  

Our tour of Sicily provides an unforgettable experience of the island’s history and culture. As well as its historical riches, the island has a natural beauty and diversity of scenery. We travel by road around the whole island and also enjoy a number of short pleasant walks. Sicily’s picturesque and historic towns and cities are a feast for the senses, and there will be plenty of time to explore on foot their piazzas and meandering streets.

Your journey begins in a remote corner of the coast of south- west Sicily where we visit the most impressive classical site on the island, Selinunte. It’s a quiet, peaceful place, full of atmosphere where spring flowers grow and sheep graze amidst the ruins. We soon gather pace to uncover many of the country’s highlights including the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento and the Greek and Roman sites of Syracuse, which once rivalled Athens in the Greek world. Our last centre is the exciting capital city of Palermo, where there is so much to see, including a visit to the cathedral in Monreale, one of the greatest examples of Norman architecture in the world.
