Join us on an undiscovered holiday in Sicily-the Mediterranean's largest island, just off the toe of Italy's "boot." You'll begin in Palermo, a colourful city of churches, squares, marketplaces, and palazzos of every style. Your sightseeing tour includes Cappella Palatina (Palatine Chapel) in Monreale, built in the 1100s, with byzantine mosaics depicting famous scenes from The Bible. Next, take in stunning views with a cable-car ride to the medieval hilltop town of Erice-with cobblestone streets, fortifications, and ancient churches. Enjoy a guided tour of Trapani, set on a harbor that was once a powerful trading network, and visit Marsala, known for its famed Marsala wine. See the Acropolis and its temples in Selinunte, and take a guided visit to spectacular ancient temples near Agrigento. Visit the Roman Villa at Casale, famous for its mosaics, like the "Bikini Girls." Visit elegant Taormina and the coastal town of Cefal├╣. Enjoy an excursion on Mount Etna, the majestic volcano overlooking the city of Catania, the verdant valleys and the shimmering blue Mediterranean waters. Your affordable holiday in Sicily returns to Palermo for an overnight to celebrate your Sicilian adventure.
