This journey to Sicily’s undiscovered side reveals Greek and Roman ruins and the splendour of Baroque architecture that tells tales of years gone by. More than just a feast for the eyes, the island is also famed for its Modica chocolate and Marsala wine.
Today you’ll depart on your flight to Palermo. On arrival, we’ll transfer you to your hotel in Mazara del Vallo, where you’ll stay for three nights.
great included day out starts after breakfast, when we head to the Stagnone saltpans. Here, amongst a landscape dotted with medieval windmills, you’ll take a tour and learn all about the ancient tradition of sea-salt production.
You can choose to spend today at leisure, or discover more of the island on an optional excursion to a pair of little-visited towns. Formerly a Phoenician trading port, Trapani is our first stop and its Old Town still bears the evidence of its medieval past.
We’re heading to the west of the island today to our new base of Ragusa, which will be our home for four nights. On the way we’re going to stop for lunch at a restaurant which offers marvellous views of the Valley of Temples.
We’re going to spend a further day exploring the ‘real’ Sicily, starting with our base, the UNESCO-listed Baroque town of Ragusa. We then move on to Modica, whose medieval buildings are cut into a deep gorge and make a spectacular sight.
If you’re a fan of the popular TV series ‘Inspector Montalbano’, based on the novels of Andrea Camilleri, you’ll love today’s included exploration of Montalbano’s Sicily. We’ll visit the former fishing village of Marzamemi, whose large piazza is just a few steps from a lovely stretch of sandy beach.
The choice is all yours today, you can spend the time relaxing at your hotel or maybe get out and about and explore Ragusa at your own pace.
Today you’ll transfer to Catania for your return flight to UK.
Your hotel is located in Mazara del Vallo, close to the beach. Facilities include a restaurant, lounge bar and pool.
