Sun-kissed beaches, colourful cities dotted with cathedrals, and remote hillside villages spilling down to the azure sea; Sicily is like something out of an Italian fairytale. This dazzling 18 day tour and cruise package is a chance to discover the wonders of this dream Mediterranean destination - and a whole lot more!

Visit the smoking giant of Mt Etna, Europe’s highest active volcano; wander the streets of historic Taormina, and be inspired by the gorgeous outlook of seaside Cefalu. On return to Palermo, embark on a dazzling seven night cruise of the Mediterranean. Choose from two separate sailings, one visiting Barcelona and Valletta aboard the brand new MSC Virtuosa, or another visiting Valencia and Cagliari in Sardinia aboard the MSC Seaview. While onboard, enjoy ever-changing views of the magical Mediterranean, sensational cuisine, and plenty of opportunities for relaxation or play.
