We start by “disembarking” in Sicily and visit Pachino, Assoro, Agira, theatre of enormous sacrifices. In the Sicilian cemetery of Agira, for example, there are about 500 Canadian soldiers buried. And nobody knows about it! After Sicily we move up in the peninsula and visit Cassino, Melfa river and the Liri Valley. Finishing off on the Adriatic coast main battle sites of Ortona and Gradara.
Besides revisiting history – the main focus of this tour – we will discover the rich artistic, culinary and cultural heritage of Sicily, Campania, Lazio, Abruzzo, Marche and San Marino, led by our usual passions to savour Italian art, food, wine and la Dolce Vita.
