Detailed Description

Time on the fairway will never be the same after your 12-day culture and golf vacation in Sicily. The pleasures of hitting the green blend with the captivating history sweeping across the Mediterranean island. Rugged coastline meets wild olive trees and ancient mosaics shift to dramatic Greek ruins. Indulge in luxury and flavor, class and history, absorbing the exuberant outdoor markets and tranquil tees with views of the mountains. Your tour begins with your arrival at the Palermo airport. Your private transfer greets you at baggage claim and escorts you to your lavish golf resort near the seaside town of Sciacca.

You have the morning on the fairway, taking in one of the three courses located on the property before venturing to the archeological park of Selinunte for the afternoon. Next, travel to Erice, a medieval hilltop town filled with castles, walls, and delicious pastries. Return to your resort after your tour for a fabulous round of golf. The following morning, you wake up ready to play a final round on the remaining grounds of your resort. Make your way to the ancient ruins of Segesta to view the magnificent Doric temple after your game. Your private transfer escorts you to the archeological park known as the Valley of the Temples to take in a marvelous view of the Greek remains before arriving at your golf resort near the city of Ragusa.

Enjoy a round of 18 holes and visit hillside Ragusa, taking in the remarkable Baroque architecture and visible divide between the upper and lower levels of the city. Spend the day exploring the historical streets of Syracuse, from the winding pathways to the medieval structures. The following day takes you along another of your resort’s courses. The remainder of the day is at your leisure to relax on the grounds or explore some of the nearby baroque cities. Visit the charming town of Piazza Armerina, along with the exquisite preserved Roman estate Villa del Casale.

Continue to your luxurious hotel overlooking the Ionian Sea in the town of Taormina. You play a spectacular round of golf at a resort located at the base of Mount Etna. Take pleasure in a boutique wine tour on the vineyard located on the same estate. You travel to Catania to take in the Baroque landmarks of the city, from the fish market to the Cathedral, before playing a round of golf at a celebrated course near Syracuse. On your final day, your private transfer meets you at the hotel in Taormina and escorts you to the airport in Catania for your flight home.
