The Wayfarers

Italy - Sicily ~ Agrigento, Marsala & The Isle of Mozia

Greeks, Arabs, Romans and Bourbons fought over Sicily for centuries and all left their mark on the food, the people and the architecture that we see today.

We visit the ruins of Greek temples in the storied Segesta and Selinunte and our hotel in Agrigento has stunning views of the temple of Concordia. Walks take us to the mountain-top town of Erice and along the coastal paths of the Zingaro Nature Reserve, so remote that pack horses are used to carry the supplies for maintaining the paths. We take a privately chartered boat to explore Isola Grande and lunch on Mozia, once a Phoenician colony.

In Marsala we visit the famed Florio winery and have the chance to sample the local specialty - seafood couscous.

Switzerland - Bernese Oberland & Lake Lucerne

For centuries, the Swiss have mastered these mountains, bringing cheeses, salt and spices to Roman Italy. Today, highly efficient cable cars, cog railways, and chairlifts bring walkers to trails high above the treeline where we walk through verdant meadows filled with wildflowers. On every side are the legendary mountains of The Bernese Alps, their white peaks brilliant in the clear air. Below, are mountain lakes, woodlands and pastures.

We ride a cog train to the base of the Eiger, visit a farmerâs chalet and see how LâEtivaz cheese is made, and walk with panoramic views of the Monch and Jungfrau.
