Sicily Tour 2020 - 16th June / 22nd June 2020

Introduction

“To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is not have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything”(Goethe)


Sicily has long been a crossroad and crucible of Mediterranean culture. The island today is a fascinating manuscript in which Greek temples, Norman churches and Baroque palazzos emerge from the rich fabric.

This evening you will dine with the Princess Signoretta Alliatta where she will welcome you to her magnificent 15th century palace. The grand ballroom here is very grand indeed, housing the Murano Ca’ Rezzonico chandelier, considered the largest in Europe. The palazzo is a favourite stop among visiting dignitaries.
