The Greeks established prosperous colonies all along the Sicily coasts. Now beautiful remains are the witness of their presence. We follow their steps as our tour starts in Segesta then follow the coast to Selinunte. Artistic treasures are often to be searched for. We continue our tour visiting Erice, a town inhabited since the earliest ages and we end it marveling at the golden mosaics of the Monreale Duomo.

Sea and more...Sheer cliffs dropping into a sea as clear as crystal, white sand coves or black volcanic beaches. The sea here has always been part of every day life and you will also be able to see ancient "Tonnaras" (fisheries) or "Saline" with the white heaps of salt. To complete the circle we cut across the central part of the island. This is the secret core of Sicily, the Mafia cradle, villages made famous by many movies such Corleone in the Godfather.

Accommodations in Sicily are not easy to find outside large centers or tourist resort. Some of the accommodations will therefore be very simple especially in the interior of the island. Wherever it has been possible we have tried to compensate by offering the best. You will therefore find a somewhat uneven level during this tour.

Airfare is not included in the tour price.
