Southern Italy and Sicily (14-days) April 28-May 11, 2021 plus an optional extension to Malta May 11-14
Beautiful landscapes, lots of history, no elbow-to-elbow tourism, and great new wines to discover in two wondrous weeks! Some highlights: ...Herculaneum and Mount Vesuvius ...Volcanic "tufa" wine caves at the foot of Mt Vulture ...Homes carved into cliffs in the UNESCO town of Matera ...Palermo, Sicily and the island's beautiful north coast ...Relaxation at a legendary 5-star resort on the Sicilian coast ...Greek temples better preserved than many in Greece ...Mount Etna and the remarkable vines on its slopes ...The fabulous village of Taormina, a resort even in Roman times ...An optional extension to the mysterious island nation of Malta
As on all our journeys, we enjoy luxury hotels, Michelin meals, and private winery visits in a small group of like-minded travelers who love wine and food. The trip is half about wine, half about history, scenery, art, and local culture.
