Treasures of Sicily
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
The Zingaro walk was particularly meaningful for me. 30 years ago the Reserve risked to get cut in two by a highway. National associations along with hundreds of Sicilians demonstrated against the distructive plan and thanks to them we can now enjoy beautiful walks with breathtaking views. As an Italian myself, it simply made me proud.
What did you think of your group leader?
Our leader, Fabio, has been the key to the enjoyment of our holiday. You can tell that he loves and knows every inch of his region.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
The Zingaro and the Mt. Etna walks aren't demanding at all, but if you feel unsure walking poles can make the difference. Walking shoes are more than enough though. Local transfers are usually quite long, so a good book or some music could do. I personally took a lot of pictures (and sometimes a nap!), plus our leader now and then gave us information about what we were seeing while driving by, making the journey not boring at all.
