Around Sicily


see larger map >>

October 2 to 11, 2019

Travel aboard the sleek, new Le Bougainville with classics professor and Travel/Study icon Marsh McCall, calling upon several of Sicily’s most inviting towns and cities, including Monreale, Palermo and Taormina, and ancient sites such as Agrigento and Segesta.

Nexus of the known world. Discover what has made Sicily such a magnet for archaeologists, strewn as it is with remnants left by the island’s numerous conquerors over the millennia: the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, Germans, Savoyards, French, British and most recently Italians (the Romans again!). Begin and end in Malta. While in Malta, where our voyage begins and ends and itself a crossroad of cultures, view the prehistoric Ggantija Temples on its island of Gozo and check out the ancient ruins and monuments found around Valletta.

from $6,995
