Our cultural tour of historic Sicily, starting in the heart of Palermo, travels via Agrigento and Syracuse to Taormina – Goethe’s “patch of paradise”. Explore highlights of Sicily's Classical heritage at Agrigento, Selinunte and Syracuse, as well as later cultural influences, from the extraordinary Arabo-Norman architecture of Palermo to the exuberant 18th-century stucco decoration of Giacomo Serpotta.
