Tour Details

Would you like to time-travel across 470 years to Islamic Sicily to witness the hidden jewels left by Muslims in this stunning European island?

As-Salamu `Alaykum” would have been a common greeting in Sicily a thousand years ago! Why? Because from 827 to 1061, Sicily was under Arab rule, a period of enlightenment whose cultural, social and economic reforms had a profound and long-lasting influence that is still felt today. Board a time machine to witness the wonders of the Muslim Aghlabids dynasty, learning the full story in exciting chronological order as events have happened!

Itinerary

Palermo

The timeless capital of Sicily, Balram (as Muslims called it) is bustling with busy Arab-style markets, a well-preserved Muslim fortress, & a huge cathedral with the Quran written on its outer walls. Find out why!

Enna

Not so far from the sea, Enna is 1 of several mountain towns on our travel path which has beautiful cascading houses. Muslims used to live in these elevated towns to gain protection against raids from Italy’s mainland armies!

Agrigento

This golden temple is not in Greece! Before the Muslims, & before the Romans, the Greeks left their touch on Sicilian history & culture. Find out how the Muslims used these UNESCO heritage buildings during their rule!

Taormina

Sicily’s undisputed most beautiful town, high in the sky, Taormina overlooks an unforgettable panoramic view of hills, beaches, and rocks, with a beautiful Muslim palace at the top that is waiting for you to explore.

Cefalu

Pronounced Shefalu, which means in Arabic”a healing for him,” this time-frozen sea town is indeed a healing for the mind & soul with its golden beaches, spiral hill, & fully preserved water machines built by Muslims!
