Treasures of Sicily

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Going into Monreale cathedral with its magnificent mosaics and being greeted with a choir singing. Combination was unexpected and amazing. Greek temples at Agrigento and Segesta.

What did you think of your group leader?

He was excellent, enthusiatic and informative about Sicily. Approachable and friendly. The driver was good too.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Mount Etna is cold even in May. Take some warm clothing and suitable shoes! The walk in Zingaro Natural Park was quite demanding - uneven footpath surfaces and hot in the summer months. Both were worth the effort though. Oepning times of some monuments etc was a bit unprdictable and some were not open at all.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

I really enjoyed this holiday; the group got on well which was an important factor. I had no idea of what Sicily would be like and the reality was it is a fantastic place with beutiful scenery, a varied culture and history and friendly people. I hope to go again!
