"the clue" to understanding Italy & our Greco-Roman Heritage
The greatest Greek temples and theatres, the finest Roman mosaics, World Heritage baroque palaces, ancient stone hilltop villages, the matchless Byzantine gold of Monreale, gardens by the blue, blue sea, and absolutely great cooking!
Sicily is also the land of myth and history, monsters and heroes, including Cyclops, Ulysses, Aeneas, Sappho, Empedocles, Theocritus, Archimedes, Cicero, Santa Lucia, Frederick II, Bellini, Garibaldi, Pirandello, Falcone, Al Pacino, and Inspector Montalbano.
As Goethe said, "To have seen Italy without without having seen Sicily is to not have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything."
SICILY TOUR is a boutique tour company, specializing in intelligent and insightful tours of Sicily and Italy.
With over twenty years of experience, and living in the ancient heart of Siracusa, Sicily's most historic city, we are the experts . . . or we know who is.
