Tour Sicily’s many UNESCO sites including Agrigento, a hilltop city founded in 581 BC and the 4th century Villa Romana del Casale in in Piazza.
Explore Piazza Armerina, splendid art city woven into the heart of Sicily. It boasts a slew of monuments that tell of its glorious past.

Additionally, Sicily’s rich history includes Valley of the Temples, the well-preserved ruins of 7 monumental and Doric-style Greek temples.
View Mount Etna, one of Europe’s highest active volcanoes.
Not to be missed is a tour of Mazara del Vallo which sums up the character and history of the whole island! It contains the largest fishing fleet in Italy, a world famous Dancing Satyr netted from the sea, a labyrinthine North African Kasbah in the town centre as well as delightful architecture.
