Tour Itinerary

Enjoy an in-depth encounter with spirited Sicily on this ramble 'down south', which includes some quality time in Rome and a visit to the feisty city of Naples. Take a drive to Mount Etna, Europe's largest active volcano and delve into Agrigento's Greek heritage in the Valley of the Temples. You'll dive head-first into the fun-filled capital, Palermo and engage with the island's centuries-old seafaring heritage.

Day 1 - Arrive Rome (1 Night)
What better way to kickstart your adventure to Sicily than a brief visit to the Italian capital? A day is a long time on the busy streets of Rome as you'll come to discover. Turn in a circle and you'll see ancient, medieval and modern all in one go. Check into your hotel and the frenetic pace of this lively city by ditching your siesta and heading out on your own. A few firm attractions under your belt, you'll meet your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a glimpse of what lies ahead before an optional sightseeing tour of Rome with a light dinner.
Accommodation: Ergife Palace

Day 2 - Rome – Naples (1 Night)
Begin your journey south this morning, passing the Abbey of Monte Cassino bound for Naples. A true architectural marvel, the Abbey has been the site of conflict and conquest for many centuries, most notably serving as a backdrop to some of the fiercest fighting in World War II. Arriving in Naples, you'll have some time to rub shoulders with the bold Neapolitans in their UNESCO-listed city centre. Follow your nose in search of the best Neapolitan pizza in town or join an Optional Experience delving into the city's fascinating archaeology. Dinner tonight is at your hotel.
Accommodation: Holiday Inn
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 3 - Naples – Ferry to Sicily – Acireale (2 Nights)
We leave mainland Italy today, driving south via Salerno through the picture-perfect Calabrian countryside. Hop aboard the ferry crossing the straits of Messina to Sicily bound for Acireale, a pretty coastal city tumbling down the slopes of Mount Etna into the Ionian Sea. Take a deep breath and savour the fresh sea breeze, admiring the beautiful Baroque buildings that lie at the city's centre as you go for a wander. Embrace your Mediterranean surrounds and watch the sun set on yet another perfect day in Italy.
Accommodation: President Park
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 4 - Taormina Sightseeing and Excursion to Mount Etna
Get up close and personal with Mount Etna today. The largest active volcano in Europe and one of the most impressive landmarks on the island, Sicily's volatile volcano appears to simmer in anticipation of its next eruption. Against its imposing backdrop, you'll visit the hilltop town of Taormina, strolling along its elegant Baroque and Gothic-lined Corso Umberto to Piazza Nove Aprile. Spend some time in the square at one of the welcoming cafés sipping a cappuccino and people-watching or go shopping for souvenirs and the Sicilian hand-made lace for which the town is so well known. An optional Sicilian dinner with entertainment could be the perfect way for you to end the day.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 5 - Acireale – Agrigento – Palermo (2 Nights)
The kiss of the sun will be as kind to you as it is to Sicily's spectacular landscapes. Soak it all up as you continue to UNESCO-listed Agrigento, home to the Valley of the Temples, on Sicily's southern coast. Agrigento's seven 6th-century BC Greek temples remain as a testament to the city's former stature as a leading city in the Mediterranean world. Join your Local Specialist for a guided walk along the fortified ridge, stopping at all the main sights. Take some time to admire the spectacular views from the ruins of the Temple of Juno overlooking the sea before continuing your return journey to Palermo in time for dinner with your travel companions.
Accommodation: Astoria Palace
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 6 - Palermo Sightseeing and Excursion to Mondello
Tread in the footsteps of merchants, soldiers and monarchs, delving into the tumultuous history of Palermo, whose centuries-old multi-cultural influences remain to this day. Join a Local Specialist for an exploration of the capital's colourful past, including a visit to the honey-hued cathedral. Stroll through the Piazza Bellini, at the heart of the city, keeping a keen eye out for some of the ruins of the city's former walls. Your journey continues to the pretty fishing village of Mondello which has become a favourite summer haunt for the who's who of Palermo. Soak up the holiday atmosphere along its lively seafront promenade, before returning to Palermo for an evening at leisure.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 7 - Palermo Free time – Overnight Ferry to Naples (1 Night)
You have a full free day in Palermo to do whatever you wish. There's no reason why you shouldn't hang your sightseeing hat up for the day and relax, but should you choose to explore on your own, consider a visit to the city's ancient street markets - Capo, Ballarò, Vucciria and Borgo Vecchio. Perhaps, continue the adventure with an Optional Experience to the medieval village of Cefalù, renowned for its fortress-like cathedral, glittering mosaics and soaring twin towers. This evening, board your overnight ferry to Naples, taking one last moment to savour Sicily's beautiful views.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 8 - Disembark in Naples – Rome (1 Night)
We return to Rome today, reflecting on the past week's adventures as we wind our way north from Naples. There's time on arrival to fit in some much-needed retail therapy, last-minute sightseeing or an optional tour of the backstreets, piazze and fountains of Rome. You could also choose to spend your evening with an optional Farewell Dinner at a popular local haunt.
Accommodation: Pinewood
Meals: Breakfast

Day 9 - Depart Rome
Grazie Italy! It's been a grand adventure treading in the footsteps of the ancients across an island that once held the distinction of being one of the Mediterranean's most important crossroads. Say ciao to your fellow travellers as you prepare for your return home with many memorable stories to share. Transfers are available to Rome Fiumicino airport. Conditions apply.
Meals: Breakfast

Cost Saver was our first bus tour and we feel our group of 47 was too large a group (herd) for us.

The Trip to Sicily was amazing , the cities and the different sites we visited were exiting and beautiful. The food in Sicily was exceptional. Our Tour Director was professional, knowledgeable, and responsive.
