Eastern Sicily is a destination that could not be better suited to a luxury tour. It is steeped in history, with a landscape that is both dramatic and varied - meaning whichever direction you venture you will find sights, sounds and experiences to delight and inspire.


Thoughts of sandy beaches, calm blue ocean, craggy mountains, quaint towns, and rolling green pastures complimented by the smell of oregano, orange blossom and mint drifting by on the breeze are enough to get anybody thinking about their next holiday. Then, throw in incredible excursions ranging from UNESCO World Heritage Sites to an adventure on the slopes of Mt. Etna, Europe’s largest active volcano, and you can see why so many well-heeled travellers are choosing to experience Sicily by car.


With this tour you will travel in luxury and style, staying at some of the most chic and elegant hotels on this storied island, allowing you to get the best of every step of your trip. However you want to explore, and whichever sights you would like to see, our Travel Specialists are ready and waiting to tailor-make your dream tour, exactly how you want it.
