Palermo

— 7 nights
The capital of Sicily, Palermo was founded by the Phoenicians under the name of Ziz.
Venture out of the city with trips to Madonie a Passo lento (in Petralia Soprana), Duomo di Monreale (in Monreale) and Tempio di Segesta (in Calatafimi-Segesta). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Cattedrale di Palermo, stroll the grounds of Catacombe dei Cappuccini, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of San Cataldo, and admire the landmark architecture of Palazzo Conte Federico.

The largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily is a ruggedly attractive land. The island has a long history of foreign domination and has been controlled by the Greeks, Romans, Arabs, and Normans. The result is a distinct culture blending elements from all of those areas and featuring an intriguing dialect. This is a huge island with plenty of small villages to tour, each with its own treasures. Beyond the popular coastal areas, Sicily's inland attractions include an unspoiled landscape of mountains, hills, and villages that sometimes seem frozen in time. While the natural environment is its biggest draw, Sicily's greatest asset may be its people. They are proud of their traditions and incredibly hospitable to visitors.
