Italy, Sicily - Trip code CS

Classical Sicily

This all-encompassing trip takes in the highlights of Sicily as we travel to some of the most impressive and best preserved Greco-Roman sites in the Mediterranean. Along the way, we enjoy spectacular scenery, experience the relaxed island lifestyle and sample delicious Sicilian food and wine.

Trip highlights

  • Syracusa - Discover the ancient sites of a city that once rivalled Athens in size
  • Agrigento - Visit the Valley of the Temples, with its remarkable Doric architecture
  • Palermo - Explore the cultural melting pot of Sicily's capital and visit the majestic Norman cathedral at Monreale
  • Taormina - Soak up the atmosphere of this popular coastal resort and visit its famed Greek theatre, with its postcard views of Mount Etna
Accommodation grade:
Standard
Our standard, mid-range accommodation offers a good level of service, often with other amenities such as a restaurant, bar, garden or swimming pool. Generally rooms will be comfortable with en suite facilities.
Trip pace:
Full on
Full on paced trips are for travellers who like their holidays packed with activities and experiences, moving on quickly from place to place with lots of early starts and long, busy days. Some may find them tiring, but others get a buzz from packing their precious holiday-time as chock-a-block full of new experiences as possible!
Group Size:
12 - 18
Maximum group size ranges from between 6 to 20 people, depending on the type of trip, the transport and accommodation used and activities included. We rarely have groups that are smaller than five or six people and the average is 12 people plus an Explore leader.

Itinerary

Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

Day 1 - Join trip in Syracusa

Starting our trip in Syracusa, we will meet up with the rest of the group in our hotel this evening. During the Greek Classical Period, this east coast city was the largest in the ancient world - even bigger than Athens. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is also notable as being the birthplace of antiquity's greatest mathematician, Archimedes.

Accommodation: Jolly Aretusa Palace Hotel(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Single room available
Meals Provided: None
Day 2 - See Syracusa's historic Neapolis and Ortygia Island

This morning we will visit the city's Neapolis Archaeological Park, with its famous Greek theatre hewn out of the hillside and the fine Roman amphitheatre where gladiators once fought. We then continue to Ortygia Island - a small island in the centre of the city which is home to many more historical landmarks. Leaving Syracusa, we drive for a couple of hours inland to Piazza Amerina, a charming market town set amid rolling countryside, which will be our base for the night.

Accommodation: Park Hotel Paradiso(or similar)

Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 3 - Villa Romana and Agrigento's Valley of the Temples

Just a short hop from our hotel, we will start our day by visiting the Villa Romana del Casale with a local guide. It's the ruins of a magnificent country mansion containing some incredibly well-preserved and beautiful Roman mosaics. Continuing to the west coast, we reach Agrigento - once one of the most prosperous cities in Sicily. The ancient acropolis, now the modern city, overlooks a southern ridge, misleadingly named the 'Valley of the Temples'. Visiting these temples, we walk around the ruins of the largest Doric temple ever constructed - the Temple of Zeus. We will also explore the perfectly-proportioned Doric columns of the Temple of Concord, as well as the oldest temple in the complex, honouring Hercules. Later this afternoon, a two-hour drive takes us north along the spectacular coastline to tonight's hotel in Marsala.

Accommodation: Hotel President(or similar)

Day 4 - Visit Erice and the Greek ruins of Segesta en route to Palermo

This morning we drive to Erice, where we can enjoy the ambiance of this beautiful walled Medieval town. At 750 metres above sea level, we hope to have impressive views of the valley and sea below. It is also worth noting that Erice is home to Sicily's most famous cake shop - Maria Grammatic. Early afternoon will see us travelling on to Segesta - one of the best-preserved ancient Greek sites in existence. Here, the Doric temple and the amphitheatre sit on the slopes of Mount Barbar in a stunning natural setting. No modern day structures mar our appreciation of the site. On leaving magnificent Segesta, we drive an hour along the north coast to our hotel in Sicily's capital, Palermo.

Accommodation: Hotel Politeama(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 5 - Palatine Chapel and Monreale Cathedral; free time in Palermo

Before departing Palermo this morning, we will visit the Palatine Chapel - the royal chapel of the Norman kings of Sicily, packed with spectacular Byzantine mosaics. Driving into the hills just a short distance out of the capital, we go on to visit the majestic Norman Cathedral of Monreale. Founded in 1174 by William the Good, the cathedral is also famous for its extensive mosaics, as well as its beautiful cloisters showing both Romanesque and Islamic influences. Returning to Sicily's capital, our afternoon is free to enjoy Palermo at our own pace. The city stands at the foot of Monte Pellegrino, with the fertile valley of Concha d'Oro behind. It was one of the richest cities in Europe from the 9th to the 12th centuries AD when Islamic culture, Byzantine magnificence and the vigorous world of medieval Europe were merging into a fascinating civilisation. Today, the city maintains a sense of cultural diversity and is famous for its art, music and food.

Day 6 - Cefalu and coastal scenery en route to Giardini Naxos

Leaving Palermo, we drive along the spectacular northern coastline to the picturesque fishing village of Cefalu. Here we stop to visit the Norman Cathedral, with its stupendous mosaic of Christ Pantocrator. We take a scenic drive along the coast via Messina, stopping briefly for an optional visit to the Archaeological Museum. Our base for the next two nights is the small beach resort of Giardini Naxos, just outside Taormina on the north east coast.

Please note, on our 12 May, 15 September and 06 October 2018 departures we will be staying in Taormina instead of Giardini Naxos on days 6 and 7 of your holiday. The towns are only a short distance apart along the coast. The itinerary inclusions will remain the same and you'll still have the opportunity to visit Mount Etna, the only difference is that you won't be visiting Giardini Naxos and your free time on day 7 will be spent in Taormina instead. If you still want to visit Giardini Naxos then it's easily accessible on the hop-on public bus from Taormina.

Accommodation: Hotel la Riva(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 7 - Chance to travel to Mount Etna; afternoon in Taormina

This morning, you have the opportunity to join a tour to explore the lunar landscape, craters and lava fields of Mount Etna - one of the most active volcanoes in Europe. Alternatively, you might prefer to enjoy a more sedate morning enjoying the coastal location of Giardini Naxos. This afternoon, we travel the short distance to Taormina, Sicily's most famous resort. Once a favourite haven for the likes of D. H Lawrence and Oscar Wilde, Taormina is still today a tourist honeypot. After a walk around this chic and beautiful town, with its pretty medieval churches and charming streets, it's easy to understand why. We'll visit the Greek Theatre in Taormina. Here, snow-capped Mount Etna acts as a spectacular backdrop to the remarkably preserved columned stage. It's easy to see why this is possibly the most famous view in Sicily, it makes for a superb photograph.
