HIGHLIGHTS OF SICILY & SOUTHERN ITALY

Tour: LM  ROME  PALERMO
Spectacular scenery combined with fascinating architectural remains and archaeological sites—all of this awaits you on this fabulous “off the beaten path” holiday through Southern Italy and Sicily. If you’re interested in ancient history, this tour is certainly for you. Stop in Matera, to enjoy a panoramic view of the sassi houses—prehistoric cave dwellings built into the rock—thought to be some of the first human settlements in Italy. A guided visit of Reggio Calabria’s Bronzi di Riace museum to see the world-famous bronze warrior sculptures will leave a lasting impression. Once in Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean, known for its blue skies and rich heritage, visit the Greek Theater at Taormina, built in the 3rd century BC. Also, visit the amazing Greek structures that have survived for 2,400 years in Agrigento’s Valley of Temples; and the 12th-century Norman cathedral in Monreale, famous for its 50,000 square feet of precious byzantine mosaics. Photos and words cannot adequately capture these sights.

History buffs will also enjoy Pompeii, which was completely buried during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Imagine what life was like some 2,000 years ago! This preserved town gives you an amazingly detailed look into life at the peak of the Roman Empire. A unique highlight is the guided visit to the Papal Palace and Barberini Gardens in Castel Gandolfo where lunch has been arranged for you. In Naples, enjoy a guided tour and savor a slice of Neapolitan pizza. Other special treats include a taste of the traditional tartufo desert in Pizzo Calabro, and local pastries (pasticciotto) with almond iced coffee in Lecce.

For those desiring amazing scenery, this Italy tour is sure to delight. Visit the Sorrento coast and Capri—both offering breathtaking views of the crystal-clear, blue sea. Spend time gazing at the mesmerizing water, shop at the boutiques, and dine at the fabulous restaurants visited by celebrities.

History, amazing scenery, tasty cuisine, and so much more is waiting for you on this Italy tour. So pack your bag and get ready for the trip of a lifetime!
