Vacation Overview

Italy is a country with so much to offer—amazing scenery, ancient ruins, a rich history, sumptuous cuisine, architectural treasures, splendid art, designer shops, and friendly people. On this Best of Italy & Sicily tour, you’ll experience some of Italy’s and Sicily’s most popular cities and historic sights, including Rome, Florence, Venice, Assisi, Pompeii, Sorrento coast, and Taormina. You’ll also enjoy an overnight ferry cruise from Naples to Sicily.

Tour highlights include Agrigento, where you’ll see ancient Greek structures that have survived for 2,400 years! And in Taormina, you’ll visit the 3rd-century BC Greek Theater, the second largest of its kind in Sicily. Photos and words cannot adequately capture these sights—you must visit them in person! Your time on Sorrento coast includes a visit to the Isle of Capri with a jetfoil ride across the Bay of Naples and a funicular ride to Capri village.

If art is your focus, you’ll be delighted by Michelangelo’s David in Florence and his ceiling paintings in the Sistine Chapel in Rome, which you’ll also see on this tour. Watch glassblowers in action as they create their beautiful art in Venice. Or if historical churches interest you, you’re sure to be delighted by the 12th-century Norman Cathedral in Monreale, famous for its 50,000 square feet of precious byzantine mosaics; St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome; the 13th-century Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi, where St. Francis is buried; Ravenna’s 6th-century Basilica of St. Apollinaris in Classe, famous for its mosaics; and more.

These are just a few of the many highlights on this Best of Italy & Sicily tour. So if you want to see Italy, let Globus handle the details—including special experiences such as wine tasting in Marsala and a private water-taxi ride in Venice—and focus your energy on experiencing this marvelous country.
