Southern Italy & Sicily

Overview

Discover the island of Sicily located in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea at the tip of the Italian peninsula, on a 12-day escorted tour also taking in the sights of Southern Italy. Highlights include the two unique towns of Matera with its cave dwellings and Alberobello with its domed roof dry-stone trulli houses, and the beautiful coastal regions of Sorrento and Amalfi. En route you will also see two volcanoes – Etna and Vesuvius, and visit the preserved remains of Pompeii dating back two thousand years.

Sicily is the meeting point between East and West, a melting pot of Mediterranean culture and a tantalising mix of picturesque coastline, dramatic mountains and the brooding presence of Mount Etna. It is an island of contrasts, with Norman palace walls and Arab domes jostling for position in Palermo, with the Valley of Temples dating back to 5th century BC, and with the Baroque beauty of Catania. And to complete your Italian experience, perhaps extend your tour by a few days in the awe-inspiring city of Rome (CL)
