Syracuse, Sicily

Strategically placed at the heart of the Mediterranean, Sicily’s changing fortunes under a succession of colonisers has left a rich array of historic sites to explore, from crumbling Greek temples to Roman villas, medieval fortresses and lavish Baroque towns. Our specialists can guide you as you plan your trip, using their first-hand knowledge of Sicily to help you decide where's best to go depending on your interests. Whether you only have time to see one set of ancient temples or want to visit the island's finest vineyards, they're there to guide you along the way.

You can learn about ancient history as you explore the Grecian Valley of the Temples, marvel at the intricacies of Byzantine mosaic work in Palermo, stroll along the sophisticated streets of Syracuse or venture onto the slopes of Mount Etna, Europe's most active volcano. Sicily is a many-faceted place to visit, and our specialists have explored the main sights and the lesser-known ones. They’ll carefully plan your holiday as an individual tailor-made trip to match your preferences.
