Complex, beautiful, culturally rich. These words are a few of the hundreds of words one might use to describe Sicily. For centuries, this large island off the Italy’s boot tip has been taken repeatedly through foreign domination. Yet, amid that constant flux, a completely original Sicilian culture has developed. Unique in the world, traveling to Sicily today is like visiting Italy 30 years ago, without the crowds and modern irritants. This is a place calling out for adventurers.
A Wonder Voyage to Sicily lets you experience both an active and vibrant coastal culture and a quiet and contemplative mountain culture. There are religious, natural, and historic treasures in abundance. We will dip into Arab, Byzantine, Norman, Italian and Grecian influence everywhere we visit. Imagine hiking the mountains from one town to the next or visiting an ancient temple or the largest active volcano in Europe. Sicily is a place filled with wonder.
