OVERVIEW OF ITINERARY
We will begin our tour in the Amalfi Coast, where we stay in Sorrento Italy and explore one of the most beautiful regions in the world for 3 days. Here we will taste wines produced in the volcanic soil of Mt. Vesuvius, exploring the idyllic towns of Sorrento, Positano, and Amalfi during guided tours and leisure time on your own. We then depart for the island of Sicily, with our first stop being the capital city of Palermo where we will stay for two nights.
Our next stop will be Taormina, on the east coast of Sicily, where we will be based for the next 3 nights. This town was made famous recently, as the HBO Mini-Series 'White Lotus' is currently being filmed here. Here we will visit a mix of locales including the medieval town of Cefalú, the famous Gambino Winery, the hilltop town of Taormina with its picturesque beaches, and the Silvestri craters of Mt. Etna.
We then transfer 90 minutes south, to the province of Syracusa for two nights where you will eat and drink like the locals and explore the towns of Noto, Marzamemi, and Ortigia. We then say “Ciao” to beautiful Sicily and transfer from Pozzallo on a 90-minute ferry ride to Valletta, Malta. We will spend two full days exploring this beautiful island nation prior to our flight back to the US.
