Sicily has been part of our touring programme for many years, especially when travelling on to Northern Africa. Since 2014 we offer a round trip on this wonderful island in the centre of the Mediterranean.

Sicily - home to early settlers - got its first cultural identity from the Greek immigrants. They were followed by the Roman who left a deep impact, then the Arabs came, the Crusaders and many more.  Many wars, numerous battles then and now the island is a strategically important point.

Next to the remains of the various cultures, there are many natural sights, like the volcano Etna, the fertile landscapes, the rough coasts and the wonderful beaches. Also worth mentioning is the Italian cuisine, which shows us that gelato, pizza and pasta are nice but not the full thing.

This tour will be taken care of by Varina Gattemeyer.
