Southern Passion – Sicily & Malta


To see Italy without having seen Sicily is not to have seen Italy at all ! Goethe

 

Join Jennifer and Stewart on a fabulously contrasting tour to the fascinating islands of Sicily & Malta in May/June 2022.

Our spectacular tour includes Dubai stopovers to ensure you are at your peak to enjoy every moment..(and not too tired to tell all your tales on your return!) Travel with other music-lovers and enjoy performances of opera, classical and folk music as well as other regional specialities like Greek Theatre and the giant Sicilian puppets…’pupi!’ Visit colourful coastal and mountain villages, elegant holiday towns, ancient sites with temples, theatres, statues and more, stunning churches and cathedrals, many filled with glittering mosaics reflecting the many layers of history.
Tour noble villas and possibly meet a prince or princess to boot. Everything is brought to life by our local guides and of course, our knowledgeable Tour Director.   Enjoy full buffet breakfast daily (and try to resist all the sweet treats!!), savour a variety of local specialties and wines with many dinners included and at least one spectacular ‘long lunch’ at a small farm which produces everything you will eat…tasty olives, cheeses, breads, wines, vegetables, even the famous Sicilian Cannoli..all savoured in the shadow of Etna!

With two completely different islands this is a tour about many stories and vast contrasts…from the ancient ruins, war-time history and spectacular Valetta harbour of Malta to the charming fishing villages, isolated mountain top towns and grandness and energy of Sicily’s Palermo, you will be totally absorbed in all that surrounds you.
