In the morning, after a delicious breakfast, you are off on a beautiful drive south to Pompeii. You will travel back in time to the fateful year of 79 A.D. A city perfectly preserved by the ash that rained down from Mt. Vesuvius, you’ll see the tragic fossils of people attempting to escape with their children and dogs. You’ll be amazed to see the streets, homes, and stores still perfectly intact.

In the evening, you will enjoy an authentic Neapolitan dinner in the hotel.

You’ll arrive in Taormina, located on the east coast of Sicily, Italy, a picturesque town renowned for its stunning views, rich history, and vibrant culture. Perched on a cliff overlooking the Ionian Sea, Taormina offers breathtaking panoramas of the coastline, Mount Etna, and the surrounding landscape.

*This will be a long day, so remember to wear comfortable clothes & shoes!

Taormina City Tour - Dinner Out

After a leisurely tour in the morning, you will learn why Taormina is known as the “Jewel of Italy”.

Its winding streets and secluded gardens are truly enchanting. The snow-covered Mt. Etna volcano serves as a dramatic backdrop to the well-preserved Greek and Roman outdoor theaters you will be visiting.

Then, the afternoon is all yours! Why not stroll the medieval streets lined with interesting little shops, take a dip in the hotel pool, or treat yourself to one of Sicily’s greatest inventions – the cannoli! It’s like heaven in your mouth!

In the evening, you will enjoy dinner and great “Vino Siciliano” (Sicilian wine) at a fine local restaurant.

Taormina - Mt. Etna Winery Visit & Tasting - Light Lunch

In the morning, you’ll visit one of the most active volcanoes in the world, Mt. Etna, which is in an almost constant state of eruption. Don’t worry – you will be kept at a safe distance!

The abundant volcanic soil supports extensive agriculture, orchards, and vineyards. So, let’s visit a local winery for a tour, a wine tasting and a light lunch!

In the evening, you can enjoy dinner on your own. Have you tried pesce spada yet?

Swordfish is Sicily’s favorite seafood.

Taormina - Cefalù - Palermo

Off to Palermo!  You will be stopping along the way for a fascinating visit of Cefalù, a coastal town in Northern Sicily. You will enjoy a guided visit of the famous Norman cathedral, a 12th century fortress-like structure with elaborate Byzantine mosaics and soaring twin towers.

You will have some free time to walk around this charming town, shop and have lunch on your own before heading to Palermo.

In the evening, enjoy dinner on your own. Be sure to end your dinner with a delicious dessert that originated in Palermo: Cassata Siciliana.

Palermo - City Tour - Dinner in Hotel

You will start your day by visiting the Cathedral, built on the ruins of the largest mosque, which houses the relics of Rosalia, patron saint of Palermo. Then you will walk through Ballarò, one of the oldest street markets in Sicily, taking in an explosion of colors and scents of fresh fruits, vegetables, meats and fish. Vendors shout very loud—in Sicilian dialect—to attract people and to promote their specialties. This will be the best way to experience the unique atmosphere of daily life in Sicily. After visiting the market, you will admire the grandiose Fontana Pretoria, and end at the Theater of the Sun, also known as “The Quattro Canti”, the heart of the old city.

The afternoon will be free to enjoy it as you please… perhaps to buy some last minute gifts to take home with you. In the evening, you will enjoy a farewell dinner as a group, in the hotel.

Flight Home - Palermo - USA

What is the definition of Perillo Tours: PERFECTO!!!!!.
Perillo Tours met and exceeded all of our expectations. From the first day when our Tour Director Irena met us at the airport till the last day of our trip when she took us back to the airport. This was a carefree and stress free vacation , the only thing we were responsible for was being on time for our scheduled tours and dinner. The hotels were exceptional. Our favorite was the Westin Europa & Regina Hotel in Venice . We had a different tour guide in each city that we visited. Their knowledge of the museums and church's that we visited was incredible. This was the trip that we dreamed of to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Thank you Steve Perillo and your team. A special thanks to our tour director Irena for treating us like family.

Mrs. P.V.

We just returned from the Greece tour and it was wonderful. All of the hotels were 5 star and the included meals were excellent! The tour guides were great, very knowledgeable and caring.
