Experience Sicily, stepping stone between Europe and Africa, on a classic cruise.

Circumnavigate the seductive island of Sicily aboard the elegant Sea Cloud II. Autumn, when the heat and crowds of summer are gone, is the perfect time to discover her countless cultural marvels. Admire Sicily's diverse landscapes from the comfort of our three-masted barque, sail into the island's legendary harbors, and step ashore to admire ancient temples and theaters and glittering mosaics. For 2020 this perennially popular program includes a stop on the mainland in Reggio Calabria, to admire the fabled Riace Bronzes, rare life-sized Greek statues discovered in 1972.

An optional Taormina prelude and an optional Naples postlude are offered.
