Sicily is the Mediterranean’s largest island, a place distinguished by a superb strategic location and great natural wealth. This combination has attracted traders and conquerors from all compass directions throughout the ages, endowing the island with a fascinating and immensely diverse history. The wonderful archaeological and cultural attractions of Sicily would suffice to make the island worth a voyage, but in conjunction with the world-famous Sicilian cuisine, the island’s fine wines and the quintessentially Italian lifestyle often described as “dolce vita”, Sicily is a place of never-ending interest.

Our visit to Sicily was the highpoint of our third trip to Italy. We really feel that we experienced the country in a way we have not previously. We loved meeting our fellow travelers at our opening introductory dinner, we loved our shopping expedition to the Ortigia market, our cooking lessons and our trip to Mt. Etna. This was a very memorable vacation for my wife and I and we hope to travel with Peter Sommer Travels again.
