Active Holidays & Tailor-Made Travel Arrangements in Sicily

“No other land like Sicily will engage your senses so completely. Spectacular inspiring landscapes much loved and sought-after by sports enthusiasts, nature lovers and those who be fascinated by the thousand aspects of Sicily with its remarkable art treasures”

  • I am a part of a group of six ladies, all 65 years old.
    After a cruise on Greek Islands we took a plane from Marco Polo airport to Catania. One person and myself went to Etna, Taormina, Syracusa, Modica, Ragusa, Cefalu and Palermo. Some of the other persons returned home from Taormina, and other two from Syracusa.
    Before we left, I contacted Francesco Mignemi, and organized all the trip.
    The recommendations as regards to Hotels and restaurants were great.
    And everything worked great, starting from Catania where they picked us up from the airport. Everything worked as it was planned, on time and according to the schedule. In each of the cities we had local guides who knew very well their job.
    I am very thankful to Easy Sicily, and specially to Francesco!
    All of us got in love with Sicily!

  • We had a wonderful time in Sicily. Most things went well. We absolutely loved Hotel Villa Carlotta in Taormina! It is beautiful and the staff is amazing. They recommended two very good restaurants, LA Pizzetta and Quatri Arches which we loved. Fabio was a very nice guide/driver. He did not realize the ferry schedule had changed and we got to Millazo ferry terminal at 9:15 am and there was no 10:30 ferry and we had to wait until 12:30 which messed up the days plan. We got to Lipari very late, didn’t have much time there. We loved Agrigento and Villa Athena hotel was fabulous. We loved Cefalu and hotel LA Plummeria was great as was hotel Wagner in Palermo. Hotel Algila Ortigia in Siracusa was very nice and the breakfast there was excellent and use of minibar is free there. We loved Don Camillo restaurant in Siracusa which Francesco arranged for us as included dinner. The historical guides were all very good. We loved Ragusa and the San Giorgio palace hotel there was great. We had 2 very good dinners there at A LA rusticana and Quatri gatos. All in all it was a very good trip. The car problems and ferry issue were the only issues. Thanks for your help.

  • Sorry for our delay in getting review comments to you. In a word, your assistance was excellent.

    Daily itinerary comprehensively detailed arrangements, accommodations and background information for each day. We appreciated that you readily accommodated our plans to alter the itinerary slightly with longer stays in Catania and Syracuse.

    Our tour director Francesco Mignemi answered all our questions, communicated easily and well, and was spot on time every time. Our arranged guide for the hike on Mount Etna (Vincenzo) like Francesco was excellent in every way – informed, articulate and passionate about the volcano.

    Daily hiking instruction sheets were concise and clear. We quickly became confident with only one or two missed turns (our fault). We found the pictures, distance measurements and elevation data very helpful.

    Accommodations were as promised – good quality in pleasant surroundings.

    All in all, we rate the services as 9.5/10. It doesn’t get much better than that!

    Regards and thanks,

    Dianne & Ian

  • Dear Alessia,

    I want to add my voice to Adele’s in praising the trip and all the arrangements. Everything went very smoothly and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Francesco was extremely helpful and accommodating and really went out of his way to meet our needs. We really appreciated his help with our luggage and with the shopping we had to do to replace our missing clothes and to get food for the sabbath.

    We enjoyed all the hotels. We would have preferred being elsewhere than Nicolosi for the first Saturday because there’s not much to do or see there. BUt I understand that we were there because of its proximity to Etna. It also would have been nice to spend more time in Ortygia, but we had to leave early to go shopping.

    My favourite towns were Castelmola and Taormina. One of our best meals was at Trattoria Don Ciccio in Taormina. We also enjoyed the Taverna dell’Etna in Castelmola.

    The best day was the hike through the Alcantara gorge and the visit to the ecological park.

    I would have liked to spend more time on Etna. We really enjoyed Vincenzo who gave us a really good tour. His enthusiasm is infectious.

    The rest of the trip was also wonderful–Villa Romana, Valley of the Temples, Scala dei Turchi and Palermo. We enjoyed it all.

    Thank you very much for facilitating this memorable trip.

    All the best,

    Barry
