New Tour Dates for April 2018: Battlefields of Sicily and Southern Italy

We have the dates now for this favourite tour and the sunny weather in Sicily always cooperates with travellers.  Join us now on April 2-15, 2018 to experience this carefully planned 14 day itinerary. Begin in Catania and visit Syracusa and tour the landing beaches at Pachino.  These beaches are where Canadians landed in July 10, 1943.  We head next to the mountaintop town of Enna in the interior, following the path of Operation Husky.  Hilltop towns like Enna and Assoro are wonderful regional food centers.  The spectacularly preserved mosaics found in the UNESCO World Heritage site, Villa Romana del Casale, is an additional delight while enjoying Sicilian culture and history.  We cross the Straits of Messina and travel to Ortona with a brief rest in Salerno.  The bitter battle for Ortona is the focus of our visit and we examine such famous battlefield locations as the Moro River crossing, the Gulley and Casa Berardi.  While in Ortona, enjoy the Abruzzo cuisine and the famous Montepulciano D'Abruzzo wine.  Our last stop is Rome for two nights to enjoy this ancient city and its modern delights.
