Tour Itinerary

This tour of Sicily is packed with architectural treasures that have withstood the ages. Begin your “off the beaten path” tour with guided sightseeing in Palermo’s ornate city of piazzas, markets, and churches. Relish the baroque style of the city’s historic sights, and savor authentic Sicilian culinary specialties that have been handed down for generations. From panelle, arancini, and cannoli – to almond biscuits and Marsala wines – your escorted tour of Sicily is an epicurean’s dream when it comes to cuisine. You’ll also be treated to a tasting at Sicily’s oldest chocolate factory. As you tour the perimeter of the beautiful island of Sicily, enjoy escorted tours through Sicily’s centuries-old UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as the elaborate Villa Romana del Casale in Piazza Armerina. From palaces to churches, you’ll encounter ancient works of art, architecture, and archaeological treasures. Visit the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento with its Greek structures that have miraculously endured 24 centuries, the iconic baroque St. George Cathedral and Ibla district of Ragusa, and the famous mosaic-tiled Staircase of Santa Maria del Monte in Caltagirone. Travel to Syracuse – birthplace of mathematician Archimedes – for a guided sightseeing tour that includes the 5th-century-BC Greek theater. See the Church of Santa Lucia – filming location of Michael Corleone’s wedding scene in The Godfather movie– then relax with a granita and brioche at a local bar. Your Sicily tour package concludes on the beautiful Taormina Riviera with an opportunity to visit Mount Etna – Europe’s largest active volcano. A sumptuous meal will put the finishing touch to your beautiful tour of the ancient island of Sicily – with new memories to cherish for years to come.

This tour was very well organized and we were more than pleased with our tour director, Elizabetta and our bus driver, Salvatore! The both of them took very good care of their charges and were warm and personable!

By Charles T on Jun 29, 2019

Hotels were not all of the same quality. Great disparities among them. Dinners provided (especially the hotel dinners) were tremendously disappointing. Some of the included excursions were also disappointing and would be better if left out and allowed travelers more of their own free time to explore the regions they were traveling in.

By Gregory K on Jun 22, 2019

Great tour! Our tour director, Daniela, was the best and made our trip a great experience. The local tour guides were very knowledgeable and left us without questions on the sites that we saw. The Sicilian countryside is truly beautiful. We would highly recommend this tour to see the real Sicily.

By Marvin D on May 18, 2019

Spectacular country,filled with many hidden treasures...

By Roberta S on Apr 06, 2019

Globus put together a very good trip highlighting the treasures of Sicily.

By Russell E on Sep 17, 2018

The trip seemed a little disjointed.The meals in the hotels were sub standard as were the breakfasts.The hotels were not to bad,but one was pretty basic "the Mose" Not quite enough time for bathroom breaks,no toilet seats and most had to pay 50 cents.We were surrounded by the Mediterranean and couldn't get a decent fish meal through Globus.

By Donald W on Sep 15, 2018

Your director was the worst we've ever had. Never gave us enough information and kept changing times, never knew what was going on. Hotels were not in the heart of cities. Itinerary needs to be tweaked, some stops made no sense and some of the most beautiful cities were rushed through.

By Ronald D on Sep 03, 2018

Meals were less satisfactory than expected. Meals were consistently bread, pasta, cheese. Not enough variety. There was too much down time on the tour. One morning we stayed at hotel for until noon, doing nothing, and nearest town was a 30-minute taxi ride away. Hotels were less than satisfactory. Some were not located close to city center, like Modica Beach Resort. Hotels' cooling systems were not satisfactory. Had to request staff to assist with a/c adjustments. While the optional Ortigia Island cruise was pleasant, the street food was not good, consisting of spleen and fried sardines. Our transfer from airport to hotel in Palermo could not be located when we exited the baggage claim area, though she later said she was there for us. The notes in documents said transfer times were 9, 11, 1, and 3:30. We arrived at 1:00, did not locate our transfer person, and took a shuttle bus to our hotel. Aggrigento was favorite stop. It beat out Athens' acropolis. Driver was excellent. Tour Director was good, but did not allow us adequate free time (usually an hour), and then we would arrive at hotel early, creating unnecessary down time;. Other travel companies, like Gate1, kept us busy all day by leaving hotels early (6:30 - 7:00) and did not leave us sitting at hotel twiddling our thumbs.

By Dolores D on Jun 16, 2018

My two daughters and I enjoyed our trip very much. We were very pleasantly surprised to find that sharing a room for three adults was very comfortable. We were pleased with all of the guides and the ability of the bus driver as well.

By ToniAnne G on May 05, 2018

The trip was great. We had a wonderful time. Our tour guide Nicholas was fantastic, knowledgable, professional and funny. Everything went smoothly. Good itinerary. Would have like more free time in Ortigia and Catania, less free time in Noto.
