Journey Overview

Afloat in the Mediterranean, off the toe of Italy, and closer to Africa than Rome, Sicily has seen successive waves of conquerors from ancient Greek and Roman times to the Germanic tribes and Byzantine emperors, Arab armies, Norman invaders and the Spanish crown. Each left their mark on this sunny open-air museum with its Greek temples and Norman churches, Baroque palaces and dramatically located cliff-top villages. Lush mountains and sun-drenched plains, sandy beaches and a snow-capped volcano provide the scenic surrounds to the bustling cities of Palermo and Syracuse and it has a rich culinary tradition which reflects the island’s fascinating history.
