Getting lost in the pulsating streets of Palermo, and letting your nose lead the way to sweetly scented pastry shops turning out cannoli, cassata, and tart candied blood orange …
Scaling the steps of a centuries-old baroque cathedral, the outlandishly lavish façade a veritable feast for the eyes …
Uncorking a bottle of sweet Sicilian chardonnay to pair with your opulent lunch spread, made up of fresh pastas you just rolled out with the chef in your hands-on cooking class …
Walking in the footsteps of the ancient Greeks and Romans as you meander among towering temples, so well preserved you feel as though you stepped back in time …
We’ll do it all on our journey through Sicily—and so much more. Join Laney Sachs for 10 exceptional days and 9 nights spent exploring, touring, and tasting your way through the beautiful island of Sicily.
Studded with medieval hill top towns, verdant vineyards, valleys strewn with ancient ruins, and gracious cities, Sicily is a feast for all the senses. Our days will be filled with market tours, cooking classes, pilgrimages to ancient sites, and one very special excursion to monumental Mount Etna.
Arriving in Palermo and departing from Catania, our small group of 12* people will travel by our own comfortable minibus, with an entirely seamless itinerary designed for you.
