In between walks we get our fill of history and culture in Pompeii, Naples, Florence and Milan.

In many ways, Sicily is the ultimate Italy. Rich in art, archaeological treasures, history, creative cuisine and the breathtaking Mediterranean scenery, the island has been the crossroads between Europe and Africa for centuries. Sicily is warm, golden, and sprinkled with blindingly white Greek temples. This is where Archimedes taught, St. Paul preached and where the omnipresent Mount Etna made history.
Enjoy the city of the Caesars and la dolce vita, long sunny days, endless art galleries, fountain-splashed piazzas, flower markets and gelato. Tour the ancient monuments of the Roman Empire, explore cobbled medieval streets and Renaissance domes set the stage for great wine bars, fabulous dining, sidewalk cafes and uncomparable shopping. Take insightful tours of the Vatican, Galleria and Villa Borghese and Emperor Hadrian's villa in Tivoli.
Dramatically beautiful, wild, daring and romantic, the Amalfi Coast defines an Italian luxury escape. Marvel at the dramatic Amalfi coastline with aquamarine waters, steep cliffs and lemon groves below the Vesuvius, tour Pompeii and Naples and the romantic island of Capri. Take a cooking class in the unique setting of Ravello, walk through the fragrant gardens of Positano, suspended over the sparkling sea, tour the Greek temples in Paestum, and take a private boat tour of secluded bea ches, coves and grottoes of the Sorrento Peninsula.
