Sicily is the Mediterranean’s largest island, a place distinguished by a superb strategic location and great natural wealth. This combination has attracted traders and conquerors from all compass directions throughout the ages, endowing the island with a fascinating and immensely diverse history. The wonderful archaeological and cultural attractions of Sicily would suffice to make the island worth a voyage, but in conjunction with the world-famous Sicilian cuisine, the island’s fine wines and the quintessentially Italian lifestyle often described as “dolce vita”, Sicily is a place of never-ending interest.
You can also join us on our highly acclaimed expert-led Sicily food tour that explores the island’s rich history and cuisine, or explore the beautiful Aeolian islands off the north coast of Sicily, on our Cruising the Aeolian Islands.

The combination of the archaeology, the food and wine experiences, the swimming and the generally relaxed atmosphere made for a very enjoyable tour. There was a high attention to detail. Our main tour guide was very enthusiastic and highly qualified. Excellent.
