Sicily – Seeing the Green
The Mediterranean landscape of Sicily stretches from luxurious coastlines to rugged mountaintops. Palm trees tower over pebbled hills. Vineyards roll along the valleys. Orange groves and olive orchards blossom on the banks of creek beds. Your private transfer greets you at the airport upon your arrival in Palermo. The city center showcases the eclectic cultures that have settled within its boundaries, from the Norman Palace to the vibrant marketplaces that resemble a North African bazaar.

The healing properties of the water continue to draw people from all around Italy. The medieval architecture divides the city into quarters with cobbled streets leading to the shore. Stairs lead from Piazza Scandaliato to the harbor below. You settle into your luxurious resort with a private view of the radiant Mediterranean Sea.
