A Tantalizing Cultural Mosaic
The allure of Sicily lies in its contrasts. Palermo, cradle of the Mediterranean and “a city of extremes, a mixture of panache and poverty.” Along our west to east route we visit Agrigento’s magical Greek temples; top wineries; meals that are tantalizing cultural mosaics. Majestic Mt. Etna and its surrounding cities, once the center of Magna Graecia, mark the end of our 9-day adventure.
