Enjoy a self-guided touring holiday in Sicily, where beautiful Baroque towns, ancient monuments, timeless landscapes and a seductive coast all vie for your attention. We arrange the rail travel or car hire for you, and provide you with comprehensive route notes – ensuring a seamless, and completely individual, holiday experience.
Everything in Sicily is more. The sea seems bluer, the light clearer, the colours more vivid, and everywhere there is a sense of life being lived to the full. Having been ruled over by the Carthaginians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Saracens and Normans, the Mediterranean’s largest island has a rich and multi-layered history which further enhances its appeal as a touring holiday destination. Perhaps, as Sigmund Freud once claimed, it is “the loveliest region of Italy”.
We cannot tell you which of Sicily’s distinct corners is the most alluring – the fascinating, temple-strewn west; the traditional, rural centre; or the splendid Baroque east – but all provide a superb backdrop for a rewarding journey by rail or car.
