Strategically situated in the Mediterranean at the crossroads of Europe and North Africa, the island of Sicily is historically rich and has been vitally important to its various empires over time.

From the Romans, Normans to Napoleon, each of its previous rulers have left their imprint on modern Sicilian life. Your luxury holiday in Sicily will begin in the island’s east with a stay in the coastal town of Syracuse, which is famous for its architecture before moving onto the renowned Valley of the Temples, the UNESCO World Heritage site, which displays some of the finest examples of Doric temples in the world.

A stay in the cosmopolitan capital of Palermo allows you to taste some of its iconic pizza, red wine and street food. End your Sicily itinerary with a stay in the chic resort of Taormina, where you can linger in one of its many cafes or bars to just people watch. Luxury travel in Sicily means you will stay in magnificent landmark hotels in Syracuse and the capital, Palermo; a boutique hotel in the heart of the Valley of the Temples and to close out your holiday you’ll escape to the Belmond Taormina, considered by many to be one of the finest hotels on the island.
