Acacia Resort, Campofelice di Roccella (4-star)
Spend your morning on an included excursion to Cefalù. With free time in this picture-perfect, medieval district, you may like to visit the cathedral, watch the fishermen at work in the little port, see the old fishermen houses on the long sandy beach, or simply stroll through the narrow streets of honey coloured Arab-Norman buildings. We return to the hotel to spend the remainder of the day at leisure.
Campofelice di Roccella
Enjoy a day at leisure. Relax by the pool at the hotel or perhaps spend the day on the beach.
Today we journey to Piazza Armerina, a glorious Roman town. Villa del Casale is its most notable property, originally owned by a powerful Roman family in the 4th century AD. This magnificent Imperial villa is one of the best preserved of the Roman Empire, honoured as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its incredible mosaics. We’ll spend time exploring and then enjoy an included lunch before returning to the hotel.
Monreale - Palermo
Our excursion today takes us to Monreale, with included entrance to its cathedral (duomo) and cloisters, often described as Sicily’s greatest Norman buildings. They were founded by Norman ruler William the Good, who wanted an extravagant royal church worthy of being the final resting place for himself and his successors. The cathedral is befittingly decorated with over 6,000 square metres of gleaming gold mosaics. We then take a tour of Palermo city, followed by some time at leisure to explore. The island’s capital was once one of Europe’s leading cities, with frequent invasions bringing new cultures and influences, noted through the glorious historic buildings. The Cathedral is a particularly impressive example of Sicily’s unique Arab-Norman geometric decoration.
Campofelice di Roccella
Your last two days in Sicily are free for you to do as you please. Maybe make the journey into Cefalù and take a stroll along the beautiful coast or experience the local heritage. Or relax by the hotel’s private beach or swimming pool.
