What to Remember
This excursion is customized using a driver/escort, a chauffeur specialized to drive you around Sicily. The driver/escort can provide basic historical information, show you to main highlights, and provide useful information.
However, the driver/escort is not a licensed tourist guide and is therefore not permitted to conduct tours in all sites and museums within the city. Should you require a licensed local guide, one can be arranged to meet you at the sites at an additional cost.

Every effort is made to provide the tour as described, however the itinerary may change due to situations beyond our control.

Dress code:
- From March – May and from October – November: pack a winter coat and wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots
