Special Programs

Sophisticated Italy will at times reserve this section in our Web Site for special, time-sensitive programs i.e. programs held once a year or special commemorative events. Among these are: Carnival in Venice, the Palio in Siena, the Monza Grand Prix.

Likewise, as special events or programs arise, we plan to place these here in a timely manner so they will be available to you. We will always have this Sicily itinerary prominent in this section. Frankly--we love Sicily--we think it is still undiscovered,full of incredible art treasures ranging from Greek and Roman times to beautiful Baroque, lovely scenery and delicious food. Sicily is truly a joy to the eye , the intellect and the palate.
