Join TCLF as we explore the breathtaking treasures of Sicily’s archaeological sites, historic cities, landscapes, and gardens. Sicily’s unique history defines its culture and civilization, which are reflected in the distinctive attitudes and bonds shared by its people. Walk the streets of Taormina, perched high above the Ionian Sea, and explore the ruins of its Greco-Roman theater in the shadow of Mt. Etna. Travel back in time to Catania and Siracusa and experience the grandeur and beauty of one of Sicily’s oldest and largest palaces. And dine with Virginia Borghese, the daughter-in-law of Princess Maria Carla Borghese, at the lovely family villa in Lentini.

We’ll also explore the Temple of Apollo, one of the many tangible reminders of Sicily’s Greek past. Our classical journey will continue in Selinunte by the sea, Segesta’s mountains, and, of course, Palermo, where we’ll savor the flavors of the city's Saracen history wihile surrounded by Norman-inspired mosaics. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience centuries of Sicilian art, culture, and landscapes firsthand, all while enjoying the best of what modern Sicily has to offer.
