Easter Celebration


Experience Easter in Sicily

Easter in Sicily is something to be experienced at least once. Take in the celebrations of the Madonna di Vasa Vasa in Modica and the U Gioia in Sicli from the vantage point of a private palace. Discover the Baroque towns of Syracuse and Ibla and enjoy local food, from fresh pressed olive oil to award winning wines directly from the winery.

This tour includes 7 out of 9 meals, where you will be introduced to 7 new restaurants for a fuller appreciation of Sicilian cuisine. The natural beauty of the region should not be ignored, and you’ll find there’s lots to explore while trekking through the natural reserve of Vendicari. Tours are guided with minicoach and driver. At night, you’ll rest in comfort and elegant style at a gorgeous boutique hotel in Noto, just beyond Porta Reale. Is there any better time to fall in love with Sicily?
