Sicily Walk


see larger map >>

September 30 to October 10, 2021

With Professor Roberto D'Alimonte and trail expert Peter Watson, explore this historic island the way the ancients did, on foot. 

Nexus of the known world. Discover Sicily’s wealth of archaeological remnants, left in turn by the many peoples who conquered the island: Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, Savoyards, French, British and finally, Italians (the Romans again!). Bag a volcano, or three. Stroll below rumbling Stromboli or climb to its summit; spend a day on the slopes of Mount Etna, Europe’s most active volcano; and travel to Vulcano to climb to the top of the eponymous volcano. Persephone ate here. Pay tribute to the ancient world’s capital of agriculture, dining on local seafood and dolci washed down with Sicily’s crisp and flinty red and white wines.


COST:

$9,395 per person, double occupancy
