Welcome to Palermo! At 6 pm, meet your Tour Director and travelling companions for a welcome dinner at your hotel. (D)
2 Palermo
Guided sightseeing features the ornate Piazza Bellini, Capo Market, the baroque Church of the Immacolata, and a visit to the CATHEDRAL. In Monreale, enjoy a panoramic view of the Conca d'Oro and a visit to the 12th-century NORMAN CATHEDRAL/ famous for its 50,000 square feet (1525 sqaure metres) of precious Byzantine mosaics. (B)
3 Palermo - Agrigento
Arrive in Agrigento, where your Local Guide will take you for a spectacular walk through the magnificent VALLEY OF TEMPLES. Even Travellers who have visited Athens and Delphi are awed by the gigantic yet graceful Greek structures that miraculously survived 24 centuries of tormented history. (B/D)
4 Agrigento - Piazza Armerina - Syracuse
Drive to Piazza Armerina and visit the impressive VILLA ROMANA DEL CASALE, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Admire the largest and most complex collection of Roman mosaics in the world, including the famous "bikini girls." Stay overnight in Syracuse, birthplace of the mathematician Archimedes. (B)
5 Syracuse - Catania - Taormina Riviera
Enter the ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE for a guided visit of the 5th-century-BC Greek Theater, the Garden of Paradise, the Ear of Dionysus, the Altar of Hieron II, the Roman Amphitheater, and the Cordmaker's Cave. Continue to Catania and enjoy some free time in its historic centre. You will be treated to an ARANCINO TASTING. An arancino is a fried stuffed rice ball, one of Sicily's most famous street foods. Spend the next two nights on the Taormina Riviera. (B)
6 Taormina Riviera
In the morning, enjoy an included excursion to MOUNT ETNA, the largest active volcano in Europe, followed by an orientation of hill-top Taormina. In the evening, a farewell dinner awaits at a local restaurant, the proper way to say, "Arrivederci, Sicilia!" (B/D)
