On this Best of Italy & Sicily escorted tour, you’ll experience some of Italy’s and Sicily’s most popular cities and historic sites, including Rome, Florence, Venice, Assisi, Pompeii, Sorrento coast, and Taormina. You’ll also take an overnight cruise from Naples to Sicily.

Tour highlights include Agrigento, where you’ll see ancient Greek structures that have survived for 2,400 years! You’ll also visit the impressive Villa Romana del Casale in Piazza Armerina. Your time on the Sorrento coast includes a visit to the Isle of Capri with a jetfoil ride across the Bay of Naples, a funicular ride to Capri village, and a boat cruise (weather permitting) around the island.

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 exquisite mosaics.

These are just a few of the many highlights on this Best of Italy & Sicily guided tour. You’ll enjoy special experiences such as wine tasting in Marsala and a private water-taxi ride in Venice as just a few wonderful adventures throughout a marvelous Italy and Sicily escorted tour.
