Extras like fresh water on board, unlimited Wi-Fi and device charging ports in every seat made the journey even more enjoyable and convenient. The friendly and helpful staff made the experience even more memorable.

On this excursion you can admire two fundamental places in Sicily: The Valley of the Temples and the mosaics of Villa Casale. It is true that there are other options (Valley of the Temples combined with the beach for example) but if you enjoy art and history, it is the ideal excursion.

Our guide was fun, communicative and exceptionally knowledgeable, replying to every possible question that we asked. It is nice to see a guide who, in addition to being an exceptional professional , is passionate about the subject matter.

Gaspare was a great guide! Very informative, perfect English, and very generous. A really fun trip!
