Oceania Exclusive Tour

For those travelers who prefer an added measure of intimacy and flexibility, we are pleased to offer our new Oceania Exclusive tours. With a minimum of 10 guests and a maximum capacity of just 16 guests, each tour benefits from a higher level of personal attention and the added flexibility and agility that come from traveling in a small group.

Oceania Exclusive tours are available for a specially selected number of tours in almost every port we visit, in every corner of the world.

A scenic drive along the northern coast of Sicily takes you to the archaeological site of Tindari, which lies on a high cape overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. Tyndaris, as it was then known, was founded in 396 B.C. by Dionysius I, ruler of Syracuse, in an area that has been inhabited since prehistoric times. An ally of the Romans during the Punic Wars, Tyndaris prospered in the Imperial Age. Upon entering the revered archaeological site, continue to the Greek theater, with its transformations dating from Roman times and splendid view of the sea. You will also see Tindari's fascinating Roman-era thermal bath, which is adorned with colorful mosaics. Next, visit the great Christian Sanctuary of the Black Madonna, which rises up majestically on the cape and attracts faithful worshipers from all over the island. The square in front of the sanctuary offers an unforgettable view over the aqua-blue sea stretching out before you.

Please note: This tour includes a significant amount of walking over uneven surfaces. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Light-weight clothing; comfortable, flat walking shoes; sun cap and sunscreen are suggested.
