What brings you to Sicily? A sense of reconnecting with family history? A passion for classical architecture and the ancient world? Our unique wines and extraordinary cuisine?
Whatever draws you, my goal is to help you make your trip as perfect and stress-free as possible.
I’d like to thank you for joining our email course—by the end of our conversation, you’ll be well-equipped to plan your journey and have confidence in your travel decisions. You’ll become the resident expert on Sicily among your circle of friends.
Sometimes, Sicily is tacked on like an afterthought to a European vacation, but Sicily is truly a destination in its own right. It’s more than an extension of your tour of Italy—Sicily has its own history, its own culture...its own unique soul.
So whether you plan a multi-day guided or DIY exploration of the island or take a private or group day-trip as part of a longer journey to the region, it’s important to know your options—and how to decide which is right for you and your vacation goals.

A bit about this course
