Summary

The largest island in the Mediterranean, Sicily arguably has the richest history of any region in Italy. The classically beautiful heart of the Mediterranean has been praised by poets and became the prize of countless cultures - Phoenicians, Greeks & Romans and later the Normans. During the Greek and later the Norman periods, Sicily was the creative center of philosophy, art and learning. On this sun-soaked island, we find wonderfully preserved Greek temples, Roman villas and Norman cathedrals (many filled with stunning mosaics).

This trip show cases the wonderful monuments from all the cultures which found their homes on Sicily. We explore the Normano-Arabic churches of Palermo, alongside some of the best preserved Greek temples in the world – and the most important late antique villa in Italy.

Tour highlights:

  • See truly exceptional mosaics at the Villa Romana, Piazza Armerina
  • Visit Arab-Norman churches with their blend of Byzantine and Arabic art
  • See the cathedral at Monreale which is covered in opulent mosaics
  • Discover the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Have a special access evening visit to the Cappella Palatina
