TASTE SICILY TOUR IN 4 STARS HOTEL
WEEK TOUR OF SICILY 8 DAYS / 7 NIGHTS
Departure from Palermo – end in Catania**
Presentation of the Tour
The tour TASTESICILY, as the name may have already guessed, is designed and programmed to give all visitors and travelers a "taste" just about everything that Sicily has to offer. An innovative tour, outside the standard of the big travel companies and of the usual All Inclusive mass tour, some- times stressful and fast, that transform the tour in a “tour de force”. Our choices: to create a direct relationship between travelers and the tour leader / driver, which becomes a friend in Sicily, and not just a driver or a guide; Never exceed 40 passengers on the circuit, thus ensuring maximum assis- tance and creating more time for visits and leisure activities, including facilitating transportation and transfers; Include all visits to major places of artis- tic / historic / cultural interest while leaving the traveler free to build his visit within sites; Offer optional excursions during the tour; Benefit structures similar with different hearts (from the City Center Hotel to the Resort in front the sea), but united by a standard of services (air conditioning, private bathroom, location sought specifically to the circuit); Taste the typical Sicilian cuisine, always finding different menus in according to the location of the region to visit: Always guarantee the arrival and departure transfers, giving the possibility of both arrival and departure from Palermo and Catania or Trapani airport; Leave the traveler free to relax during breaks on the tour or use free time for the optional excursions but also have the pleasure of discover the beauty of Sicily by their own.
