Join us on a budget-friendly holiday in Sicily—the Mediterranean’s largest island, just off the toe of Italy’s “boot.” Your discovery of this fascinating island, rich in culture, colours, friendliness and beauty starts in Palermo, a colourful city of churches, squares, marketplaces, and palazzos of every style. Next, take in stunning views with a cable-car ride to the medieval hilltop town of Erice—with cobblestone streets, fortifications, and ancient churches.

See the Acropolis and its temples in Selinunte and take a guided tour of the spectacular ancient Greek temples near Agrigento. Visit the Roman Villa at Casale, famous for its mosaics, like the “Bikini Girls.” Visit elegant Taormina and the coastal town of Cefalù. Enjoy an excursion on Mount Etna, the majestic volcano overlooking the city of Catania, the verdant valleys and the shimmering blue Mediterranean waters. Celebrate your Sicilian adventure ending your affordable holiday in Palermo.
