Combine a stay in the heart of lively Palermo with a rural retreat amongst the Menfi vineyards and close to the island's finest beaches.

First stop Palermo

Sicily’s multi-ethnic history, created layer upon layer by all the great civilizations of the Mediterranean, oozes out of every pore of the city, from its art and architecture to its fantastic culinary heritage.  Colourful, chaotic and brimming with explosive energy, the city is a mass of contradictions but one not to be missed.

With modern rooms, a beautiful courtyard for evening drinks and a great location in the wonderfully atmospheric Ballarò market, Palazzo Brunaccini is a sophisticated oasis amidst the city's slightly faded grandeur.

Next, the vineyards and the beach at Menfi

Pick up your car hire from a downtown location, or have it delivered to the hotel, and make your way to Planeta Foresteria, just inland from Porto Palo di Menfi.

For those in search of culture, the superb Greek archaeological sites of Selinunte and Agrigento are two of the finest in the Mediterranean. Menfi itself is a centre of the local wine industry, with several wineries.

At Planeta Foresteria activities range from biking and wine tasting through to all kind of seaside related activities.

Accommodation at the Planeta is in delightful spacious rooms, uniquely decorated and with their own terrace.  The outdoor pool area overlooks the vineyards. 

Please note that this is a sample itinerary and holidays can be organised combining any hotel, duration and method of travel.
