As a cultural crossroads of the ancient world, Sicily abounds with enchanting natural beauty, fascinating folklore and incomparable cuisine. Begin your discovery of this fascinating region in Syracuse. Located in Ortygia, it was one of the most important cities in the ancient world. Immerse yourself in Sicily’s scenic splendor during a drive to the volcanic crater of Mt. Etna. Admire the baroque architecture of the town of Noto and marvel at the Villa Romana del Casale in Piazza Armerina. Visit the remains of the Greek colony at Agrigento, described as “the most beautiful city built by mortal men” by the Greek poet Pindar. In Palermo, Sicily’s largest city, see stunning architecture and the mosaics of the cathedral in Monreale. Then, discover the mountaintop town of Erice, the impressive Doric temple at Segesta and picturesque Cefalů.
