Package Overview

It's history, it's culture, it's cuisine - it's Sicily! Surrounded by the breathtaking blue Mediterranean and filled with mountainous landscapes, Sicily is pure paradise. With your own rental car, you'll be able to explore all the nooks and crannies of this spectacular island, located just off the "toe" of Italy's "boot." Feel the warm wind in your hair as you journey from Catania, to Palermo, to Taormina - three of Sicily's must-see hot spots! 

Your first two nights will be spent in Palermo, the capital of Sicily. Marvel at jaw-dropping architecture and step into the legendary 12th-century Palermo Cathedral. Use your included Hop-On/Hop-Off Bus Tour to experience all the palaces, piazzas, markets, and restaurants Palermo has to offer!

The rest of your vacation will be spent in the charming hilltop town of Taormina. Perched above the Mediterranean Sea on one side, and Mount Etna on the other. Besides postcard-worthy views, Taormina boasts pristine beaches, storybook streets, historical wonders, and world-renowned restaurants. During your stay in Taormina, you'll be treated to a Cooking Class and Food Market Tour, on which you'll enjoy local tastings, a guided trip to a produce market, as well as an authentic hands-on culinary experience. In your free time, you can catch some rays on Isola Bella, hike Mount Etna, and visit the famous ancient Greco-Roman theater that's still in use today.
