  • Day 3 - PALERMO-TRAPANI-ERICE-MARSALA. Two Sicilian treats are on the agenda today. First, visit enchanting Trapani with a Local Guide. Set on a harbour that was once at the heart of a powerful trading network stretching from Carthage to Venice, the city centre stretches along the port and was built primarily in baroque style. Next, visit the medieval hilltop town of Erice, reached by cable car. Situated about 2,500 feet above sea level, it immediately impresses with its defensive walls and castle, affording breathtaking views over the Gulf of Trapani and Egadi Islands. On clear days, see all the way to the African coast. Overnight in nearby Marsala. Today's Distance: 105 mi/ 170 km (B,D)
  • Day 4 - MARSALA-SELINUNTE-AGRIGENTO. This morning spend some time on your own in Marsala, known for its celebrated aromatic wine. Then head towards Selinunte, one of the most striking and interesting sites in Sicily. Here, you will see the remains of the acropolis, with its temples and fortifications. Continue to Agrigento. Today's Distance: 96 mi/ 155 km (B,D)
  • Day 5 - AGRIGENTO-PIAZZA ARMERINA-TAORMINA AREA. Guided visit of the spectacular Doric temple of Concord, and the temple of Juno Lacinia, archaeological jewels of the Valley of the Temples near Agrigento. On to Piazza Armerina, a maze of steep streets positively overflowing with the colourful atmosphere of Sicilian life. At nearby Casale, visit the well- preserved Roman villa, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and famous for its mosaics, including the whimsical "Bikini Girls". Today's Distance: 155 mi/ 250 km (B)
  • Day 6 - TAORMINA AREA. EXCURSION TO MOUNT ETNA. Drive up the heights of Mount Etna with the option of a jeep or cable-car ride for a better view of Europe's largest active volcano (subject to weather conditions). Descend to sun-kissed Taormina, magnificently situated on a 700-foot plateau overlooking the Ionian Sea. The heart of Taormina is Piazza Nove Aprile, a paved square with unrivalled views of the sea and Mount Etna. Take a stroll along the Corso Umberto, and maybe taste a refreshing granita or a sumptuous cannolo. Today's Distance: 75 mi/ 120 km (B,D)
  • Day 7 - TAORMINA AREA-CEFALU-PALERMO. Arrive in the coastal town of Cefalu with its medieval squares, streets, and churches.

During your final day in this glorious city, catch up on some last-minute shopping or explore more of the city on your own. Today's Distance: 174 mi/ 280 km (B)
