Crossroads of the Mediterranean … the “toe” in Italy’s boot … “God’s Kitchen” … Sicily is all this, and much more, as this stellar small group journey reveals. This 12-day Sicilian sojourn begins in Palermo, where highlights include the city’s prized Arab-Norman architecture – one of the itinerary’s four UNESCO sites – and world-class street food.  Discover the medieval walled town of Erice, and Trapani’s famous salt pans. After viewing Monreale Cathedral’s breathtaking mosaics, sample the offerings at a family-owned winery. In Agrigento, explore the impressive Valley of the Temples. Admire Villa Romana del Casale’s magnificent mosaics. During a three-night stay in Syracuse, tour the renowned Archaeological Park of Neapolis and tour Latomia del Paradiso. Following an excursion to Mount Etna, enjoy a small group highlight:  lunch with excellent Sicilian wines at a private farm. The final destination is Taormina, with touring and time at leisure in this delightful medieval town.
