Cultural Tours in Sicily

Expora offer their “Treasures of Sicily Tour” a 12-day journey of all the main sights of Sicily, and designed to give you a broad appreciation of Sicilian food and wine, culture and history as well as an understanding of the art, architecture, geography and natural history of the island. We visit the fabulous temples in Agrigento, the greek theatre in Siracusa, the astonishing Roman mosaics at Piazza Armerina, Mt Etna, and there is time to relax at the end in Taormina. In addition, at Easter, we also run a very special “Sicilian Easter tour”, taking the opportunity to see some very special festivities which only occur at this time of the year on the island.

Sicily Walking Tours

Sicily is a beautiful island for walking and Esplora also offer a selection of escorted and self-guided walking holidays in the Madonie Mountains, Eastern Sicily and the Aeolian islands.

Cultural Tours in Turkey

Our “Treasures of Turkey Tour” is a splendid introduction to this fascinating country. We spend several days in Istanbul, before flying to Cappadocia and then again to the Western coast, where, amongst other attractions, we visit the splendid cities of Ephesus, Pergamon and Troy.
