Where can you visit a village on the sea with a fabulous view of a real volcano? On the island of Sicily, two miles off the southern tip of the Italian Peninsula, full of history, culture, and incredible beauty!
We'll start off with Laura on the east coast in Taormina. Up on the hill you’ll find the Theatro Greco, dating back to the third century BC. Taormina is a world heritage site with original stone buildings and windy cobblestone streets. If you are here for a Sicilian Fiesta, you'll find plenty of souvenirs, from puppets to pottery.
You won't want to pass on the delicious food! Explore the tasty side of Sicily with Laura, from the wine of Torre Palino, Sicily's largest wine producer, to the cheese, olives, salami, blood oranges, and gelato found in the Sicily's open air markets.
Laura then takes us to some of Sicily's highlight cities, Palermo, the largest city, and Randazzo, the quaint and beautiful medieval town. How about a visit to Agrigento? This area is known as the Valley of Temples because of its eight Doric style Greek temples and other ancient buildings.
The architectural and natural beauty of Sicily is astounding. Laura ventures to the divinely inspired Cathedral Monreale, home to the most complete cycle of mosaics ever created in the Byzantine tradition. We'll also visit Mt. Etna, an active volcano.
Sicily was created for the gods, and here, you’ll find nothing but the best… whether it’s scenery, accommodation, dining or shopping, even the smallest detail is appreciated and savored.
