Spectacular scenery combined with fascinating architectural remains and ancient history-all of this awaits you on this fabulous “off the beaten path” vacation through Southern Italy and Sicily. If you’re interested in Roman history, this tour is certainly for you. You’ll stop in Matera, to enjoy a panoramic view of the Sassi houses-prehistoric cave dwellings built into the rock-thought to be some of the first human settlements in Italy. A guided visit of Reggio Calabria’s Bronzi di Riace museum to see the world-famous bronze warrior sculptures will leave a lasting impression. Continue to Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean, known for its blue skies and rich heritage, and visit the Greek Theater in Taormina, built in the 3rd century BC. Also visit the amazing Greek structures that have survived for 2,400 years in Agrigento’s Valley of Temples; and the 12th-century Norman cathedral in Monreale, famous for its 50,000 square feet of precious byzantine mosaics. Photos and words cannot adequately capture these sights.

History buffs will also enjoy Pompeii, which was completely buried during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Imagine what life was like some 2,000 years ago! This preserved town gives you an amazingly detailed look into life at the peak of the Roman Empire. In Naples, enjoy a guided tour and savor a slice of Neapolitan pizza. And a true highlight is a guided visit to the Papal Palace and Barberini Gardens in Castel Gandolfo! This is just another out-of-the-ordinary experience included by Globus.

For those desiring amazing scenery, this Italy tour is sure to delight. You’ll visit the Sorrento coast and Capri-both offering breathtaking views of the crystal-clear, blue sea. Spend time gazing at the mesmerizing water, shop at the boutiques, and dine at the fabulous restaurants visited by celebrities.

History, amazing scenery, tasty cuisine, and so much more is waiting for you on this Italy tour. So pack your bag and get ready for the trip of a lifetime!
