Treasures of Sicily

A sun-blessed holiday destination and a land of regional charm, Sicily is an island of many wonders. Enjoy it as you please on a holiday where everything is taken care of, and which offers included excursions to the island's capital, Palermo, to medieval Agrigento, and to Mount Etna.

Day one

Fly to Sicily where you will be met by your Newmarket tour manager, and board the coach for the transfer to your hotel.

Day two

Today is free for you to rest and relax at leisure, either enjoying the facilities of the hotel, or perhaps venturing into the centre of Cefalu. Dominated by the craggy outcrop of 'La Rocca', Cefalu offers much of interest, by day and by evening, when the locals take to the streets for their daily passeggiata.

Day three

Today we'll visit Sicily's capital, Palermo. Founded by the Phoenicians, and later home to Carthaginian, Greek and Norman conquerors, the city offers a glimpse of the entire history of southern Italy in one place. Discover its secrets - the Cattedrale, the Palazzo dei Normanni and the Benedictine monastery at Monreale - on a day that mixes guided visits with opportunities to relax or explore at leisure.

Day four

Another day to spend at leisure at the hotel or exploring the surrounding area.

Day five

Join us to explore the moon-like landscape of Mount Etna, Europe's highest active volcano. After a chance to take in the views of the snow-capped peak, we'll visit Taormina, on the slopes of Monte Tauro. See the town's medieval palazzi, stroll the flower-strewn piazzi and visit the Teatro Greco.

Day six

Another day to enjoy the surrounds of the hotel and Cefalu.

Day seven

Explore one of the Mediterranean's most important archeological sites as we journey to the medieval town of Agrigento. Here, the great temples - of Hera Lacinia, Concordia, Heracles, Olympian Zeus, the Dioscuri and Hephaistos - give a vivid impression of the ancient world, as their crumbling columns and portals are brought to life by our guide.

Day eight

Transfer back to the airport for check-in and your flight home.
