Vacation Overview

Spectacular scenery combined with fascinating architectural remains and ancient history—all of this awaits you on this fabulous vacation with guided tours of Sicily and Southern Italy. If you’re interested in Roman history, this tour is certainly for you. You’ll stop in Matera, where you’ll see one of the Sassi Houses—prehistoric cave dwellings built into the rock—thought to be some of the first human settlements in Italy.

You’ll also visit Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean, known for its blue skies and rich heritage. Visit the ancient Greek Theater in Taormina, built in the 3rd century BC; the ancient Greek structures that have survived for 2,400 years in Agrigento; and the 12th-century Norman Cathedral in Monreale, famous for its 50,000 square feet of precious byzantine mosaics. Photos and words cannot adequately capture these sights.

History buffs will also enjoy Pompeii, which was completely buried during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Imagine what life was like some 2,000 years ago! This preserved town gives you an amazingly detailed look into life at the peak of the Roman Empire. In Naples, enjoy a guided tour and savor a slice of Neapolitan pizza. A true highlight is a guided visit to the Papal Palace and Barberini Gardens in Castel Gandolfo. This is just another out-of-the-ordinary experience included by Globus.

For those desiring amazing scenery, this Italy tour is sure to delight. You’ll visit Sorrento and Capri—both offering breathtaking views of the crystal-clear, blue sea. Spend time gazing at the mesmerizing water, shop at the boutiques, and dine at the fabulous restaurants visited by celebrities.

History, amazing scenery, fabulous cuisine, and so much more are waiting for you on this incredible guided Italy tour.
