    Join us on a budget-friendly vacation in Sicily—the Mediterranean’s largest island, just off the toe of Italy’s “boot.” You’ll begin in Palermo, a colorful city of churches, squares, marketplaces, and palazzos of every style. Your sightseeing tour includes Cappella Palatina (Palatine Chapel) in Monreale, built in the 1100s, with byzantine mosaics depicting famous scenes from The Bible. Next, take in stunning views with a cable-car ride to the medieval hilltop town of Erice—with cobblestone streets, fortifications, and ancient churches. Enjoy a guided tour of Trapani, set on a harbor that was once a powerful trading network, and visit Marsala, known for its famed Marsala wine.
