Italian Holidays in Sicily are an Immersive Experience for the Whole Family
Sicily is a Mediterranean island and Italian region separated from mainland Italy by the Strait of Messina. It is the ‘ball’ that is kicked by the ‘boot’ shape of Italy. Sicily is popular for family tours of Italy as there is plenty for children to enjoy, including boat trips, swimming in the Tyrrhenian Sea, fun at the beach, kayaking, and hiking active volcanoes. Sicily is also a good choice for walking tours of Italy, with many great routes through the Malabotta forest, Sartorius mountains, and the countryside of Castelmola.
Climb Mt. Etna in Sicily with a Private Guided Tour of Italy
One of the biggest (and certainly tallest!) of attractions in Sicily is Mount Etna, which is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. With Italian travel tours, you can reach an impressive 8,200 feet, although for those brave enough it is possible to venture even further up to see the craters. For those who want a more luxurious and relaxing way to experience the volcano, a visit to the vineyards of Etna is in order. It’s a chance to taste high altitude, volcanic wines such as Corvo Rosso, made from the Nerello Cappuccio.

Serviced Italian travel in Sicily allows you to discover many of the destinations located on the island. Palermo, the capital city of the region, is an important stopping point, and is bursting with Moorish-style architecture. However, there are plenty of other places to explore, too, such as Erice village where sweet almond paste is made, the scenic town of Ragusa, and the historical centre of Siracusa. The Marsala wine region is also worth exploring, offering chances to taste the famous sweet, fortified dessert wine.
