Sail from Barcelona for a truly magical adventure of history and scenic splendor. Arrive in Palermo, Sicily and you can go straight for the delicious food. Or head for the dramatically beautiful medieval hill town of Erice and the archaeological site of Segesta. Situated in emerald countryside, these ruins have survived for the last 2,400 years. Then, see the story book Venus Castle. Built in the Norman period, this fantasy castle is set atop what used to be the ancient temple of Venus. When the weather is just right, it’s a vista straight from your dreams. Another of Sicily’s treasures includes the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento. Eight well-preserved ancient Greek temples dating between 510-430 BC, including the impressive Temple of Zeus, comprise what used to be one of the most important cities in the Mediterranean. When we arrive in Granada, you can explore another kind of history, natural. At the Caves of Nerja, walk through pristine caverns millions of years old with chambers teeming with crystalline stalagmites and stalactites.
