Your Guided Solo Traveller Holiday To Sicily 

Visit Sicily with us on this guided solo traveller holiday to the largest island in the Mediterranean. On this solo traveller holiday, we’ll have a ‘welcome’ reception on our first night in Sicily, so you have the opportunity to meet some of your fellow travellers from the outset. We’ll also enjoy plenty of guided group excursions including a trip to the mighty Mount Etna, a tour through the beautiful town of Taormina, and a visit to the Syracuse Archaeological Park, where we’ll discover the legend of the Ear of Dionysius. We’ll also sample some Vino along with typical Sicilian produce at a local winery. On all of our Italy holidays, we include plenty of leisure time; so we can soak up the sun in the seaside resort town of Giardini Naxos or explore the surrounding area with new friends.
