    10 Days: Essential Sicily

    As the Mediterranean’s largest island, Sicily offers a huge range of experiences, from antiquities to glorious seaside. Touring with a great guide is key, especially if you’re not comfortable navigating the small hilltop towns with a car on your own. Here is just one example of what our destination experts can create for you.

      Days 1-4: Southeastern Coast

      Between historic Syracuse, the Baroque hilltop towns and the glorious seaside, the southeastern part of Sicily packs a punch. Antiquities fans will love touring the Greek theater of Syracuse, Italy aficionados will love the bucolic charm of Noto, Ragusa and Modica, and everyone should get out on the water for a half-day boat charter. Days finish at incredible authentic restaurants recommended by Indagare.

      Day 5: Agrigento

      The Unesco Heritage site of Agrigento deserves a stop, especially when based at a hotel that sits within the archeological site with spot-on views of the Valley of Temples. This history-rich area comes to life with a great guide, recommended by an Indagare specialist. After an extensive tour, return to your hotel and enjoy such amenities as a lovely pool and a terrace restaurant with fabulous views.

      Days 6-10: Road Tripping

      Make your way to Taormina via a one-night stop in Palermo. Crumbling but fascinating, the city has incredible churches, palazzi and atmospheric squares, all best toured with an insider who can navigate through the crowds. The final days of any itinerary should be spent at seaside Taormina, which is in easy distance to Mount Etna national park. Cooking classes and olive oil, wine and marmalade tastings can be organized in this verdant part of the island.

“Sicily challenges you, gets under your skin, invades your dreams and ultimately makes you accept that you will never know it fully. All you can do is plan a return trip to peel back one more layer.”
