Impressive culture and enchanting landscapes on Sicily, Sardinia and the Balearic Islands: Malta – Barcelona  

October 20 - 28, 2015
Voyage SC1537

Sicily’s many faces
The largest of the Mediterranean islands is a fabulously diverse microcosm in its own right with its rich cultural history, which dates back 3,000 years with memorials marking each era, with Europe’s highest and most active volcano, Mount Etna, and with towns and villages featuring a character and flair all of their own.

Bathed in gold: the Cappella Palatina and its mosaics

At the highest point of the medieval town center in Palermo lies a castle whose roots can be traced back to the Normans. From the outside this building seems imposing and spellbinding, but its interior charm is truly breathtaking – especially the “Cappella Palatina” and its design with Arab, Byzantine and Norman influences.  Stained glass and gold mosaics on the walls, a wooden ceiling richly adorned with Arab ornaments, and an artistic marble floor are what give this former Palazzo Reale Chapel Royal its dream-like fairy-tale atmosphere.

Menorca – the pristine Balearic island

From the rugged mountain region of Tramuntana in the north of the island, with its steep coastal areas, to gentle rolling hills and vast sandy beaches in the south – Menorca’s natural beauty has many faces. If you like the romantic setting of ancient narrow passageways, you will find just what you are looking for in Ciutadella, the island’s former capital.
