Some of the world’s most extraordinary Greek temples grace the rugged landscape of Italy’s entrancing island of Sicily. Please join us to discover these pearls of antiquity as we circumnavigate the largest island in the Mediterranean aboard the elegant Sea Cloud II. We embark our three-masted sailing yacht in Malta and first step ashore in Sicily to admire the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento. One after the other, marvels follow, from Palermo’s mesmerizing Palatine Chapel in the Palace of the Norman Kings, to the Greek amphitheater in lovely Taormina, and the well-preserved vestiges of one of the world’s most important cities of antiquity, Syracuse. Throughout our week together, Sicily will reveal her rich and unique culture as we walk in storied cities that were once centers of the Greco-Roman, Carthaginian, and Byzantine worlds, and are received in the dazzling private palazzi of local nobility.
