One of the world's most captivating places, Sicily has long lured travelers with its natural wonders, cultural treasures and out-of-this-world cuisine. Join us this October as we explore Sicily from the storied streets of Palermo to the most famous of all Italian resort towns—Taormina. In between, we'll visit Erice and sip wine; spend a day marveling at the Greek temples in Siracusa; enjoy dinner at a country agriturismo and lunch on the slopes of Mount Etna; and, finally, discover the charms of Taormina, to this day, a hot spot for the rich and famous. We'll be treated to an excursion to Mount Etna and have plenty of time to explore on our own. With wonderful weather, incredible scenery and historical wonders, Sicily tops our list of favorite places.
