12 Day South & Sicily 2015

Tour Overview

There’s no place on earth like Sicily. A true melting pot of cultures, you’ll see Greek and Asian influences in the exotic architecture, unique cuisine and faces of her people. If you happen to be of Sicilian heritage, you’ll be surprised by how the “old country” has very much joined the 21st century while retaining its special charm.

First Class Deluxe Hotels

Perillo's Hotels: Our hotels are always First Class or Deluxe as rated by the Italian Government. Most are centrally located so you can step out the front door to sight-see, shop or enjoy a "passegiata" (a walk) after dinner. Of course I stay in these hotels as well, so if we're in town at the same time - I'll meet you at the lobby bar!

Officially known as Il Vittoriano, locals derisively refer to it as the Wedding Cake or the Typewriter.

Designed in 1895 and completed in 1935, it is a monument to King Victor Emanuele, the unifier of Italy. Despite its ancient heritage, Italy is a young country and was first unified in 1870. The flame in the center with the military guard marks Italy's tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

The building was reopened to the public in 2000, following a $4.5 million, 3-year restoration.
