Easter in Sicily is spectacular, and we mean that in every sense of the word—Holy Week festivities offer travelers an opportunity to see the culture of Sicilians in a profound way. This tour combines visits to some of Sicily’s UNESCO World Heritage sites coupled with beyond-the-ordinary experiences in the region’s hidden corners. Based in Caltanissetta for the entire sojourn, you’ll participate the city’s centuries-old Holy Week traditions led by a local, expert guide. For a preview, watch our On Sicily episode at La Settimana Santa or Holy Week in Caltanissetta, Sicily.
In addition to Holy Week activities in Caltanissetta, we will witness the assembling of the Arches of Easter in San Biagio Platani and the Easter Sunday Dance of the Devils in Prizzi. We’ll visit UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Agrigento, Palermo, Mount Etna, Piazza Armerina, and more. In concert with elegant four-star accommodations, we will enjoy a hands-on cooking class, characteristic trattorias, and the warm hospitality of local insiders.

“I am well-traveled, and I think that Allison has a gift. She sets herself apart by sharing her passion and experiencing the culture as if for the first time with us. I have already told so many people that it was the most amazing experience! I am planning to attend another trip in the future and want my husband to share it with me.”
