Holiday lettings and villas in Sicily for culture-seekers

Get the inside track on Sicily’s art and architecture on a guided tour of some of the key sights on the island. Combine visits to some of Sicily’s most fascinating historical locations, such as Agrigento, Selinunte and Segesta, with a visit to local vineyards.

 

Arab-Norman Palermo, Monreale and Cefalù >>

A full day guided tour is an excellent way to visit the UNESCO world heritage sites in the north west of the island. Start off with the Norman cathedral at Monreale before spending time in Palermo’s historic centre and ending up at the magnificent Duomo in Cefalù.

 

Sicily’s interior >>

Head inland to visit one of Sicily’s greatest treasures, the astonishing mosaics at the Villa Romana del Casale at Piazza Armerina.

 

Baroque Sicily >>

A tour of the baroque towns of the Val di Noto – including Ragusa Ibla, Modica and Noto – is a highlight for anyone staying in the south east of the island. Alternatively, a private guided tour is an excellent way of exploring Syracuse’s archaeological sites and its historic centre on the island of Ortigia.

 

Modern art in Sicily >>

Sitting alongside the island’s historical art treasures, contemporary art has a growing role on the island.  There are excellent art galleries and spaces in Palermo, Modica, Syracuse and Agrigento, and, in the Tusa valley, the open-air Fiumara d’Arte art museum.
