This Tour focuses on some of the finest ancient sites on the island from the Phoenicians to the Romans. We drive up to the exquisite hill-top town of Erice, cross to the atmospheric Islands of Mozia, and visit the Moorish settlement of Mazaro del Vallo. Our first three nights are spent in the lovely wine town of Marsala where we enjoy some of the best food and wine in Sicily. This is a perfect base for visiting many of the island’s most important sites.
We then move on to glorious Palermo, a thrilling city where 1000 years of architecture have created an infinitely fascinating tapestry of Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque, neoclassical and Contemporary. Palermo is a city with a real buzz!
