As the melting pot of the Ancient World, Sicily is a natural intersection for travelers and explorers. With IU travel expert Joanie Curts, see the architectural legacy of Gothic, Moorish, and Norman conquerors and discover how remnants of ancient civilizations survived. The mosaics of the Villa Romana del Casale and the extensive collection of baroque architecture reside in Modica and Ragusa.
Architectural sites are only the beginning. Mount Etna stands in the distance of medieval Taormina, creating a dynamic backdrop for your travels. After taking in the sites, taste the flavors of Sicily at a family farm where award-winning olive oil is produced. In Caltagirone, stay at a unique hotel and spa on an organic farm, and savor meals created with freshly harvested produce.
