Cultural Destinations

This tour of Sicily, gives you an in-depth look at Sicily’s most historic cities and sights. This is starring one of the beautiful and popular cities of Sicily, Palermo. The Arabs, Normans, Greek and Spanish among many others, have left Palermo with a rich imprint of foreign culture. This is evident in its art, design, architecture and cuisine.

Visit the stunning photographic hilltop town of Erice. Erice is a picturesque medieval town built upon much older Phoenician and Elymian sites.

Uniquely, the aromas of mountain lavender, rosemary and thyme hang in the air. This couples with views to the sea which still to this day in this part of Sicily works to suspend this land in its own rhythm of life.

During the tour you will relax with the iconic scenes and views of the stunning coastline of the seaside town Cefalu. We end the tour in a prestigious landmark hotel resting in its breathtaking position on the coastline for more than 100 years. It was re-styled in the 1800s and now stands as one of the best examples of Art Nouveau décor of its kind.
