Beyond the Greeks: Sicily's Western Corner Rome
March 27–April 3, 2017
Join us next spring for a venture into Sicily’s far west. This is the part of Sicily dominated by Palermo and Trapani, where the Greeks built the biggest temples but also where Phoenicians, Muslims, Byzantines, and Normans left their mark.
We’ll start in Palermo, then move west and south to Trapani, Marsala, Selinunte, and Agrigento. Along the way we’ll taste the exotic, complex cuisine for which Sicily is famous, and some dishes specific to this corner of the island, such as cuscus and the rich but delicate tomato and garlic pesto of Trapani. And yes, there will be cannoli too. And amazing seafood. And …
The tour will begin and end in Palermo. Prices, from $5990, include 7 nights bed and breakfast, airport transfers, all scheduled activities, at least one fabulous meal per day, and plenty of snacks and tastings.
As always, feel free to write or phone with any questions or to request a booking form.
We hope to have you with us for this exciting and delicious adventure.
