There are a few things going on in this photo–Mount Etna’s craters in the background, the medieval town of Randazzo and its cathedral in the middleground, and a steep valley and a very curvy road in the foreground. Now, imagine if you were driving on this road. You’d have to focus on the switchbacks–and from experience, I can tell you, the big trucks coming around those bends in the opposite lane too!
Driving in Sicily is not for the faint-of-heart, which is why I recommend that you join me for one of our small-group tours. Yes, I have self-driven all over Sicily in everything from a Fiat 500 to a 9-seat van; it can be done! However, I will say, having a local, professional driver at the helm, so you can gaze out the window and enjoy the breathtaking scenery like this, pictured, makes for a tranquil trip (and a lot less gasping because of on-coming traffic!).
Stand by for a special announcement about our 2018 small-group (i.e., no larger than 12 guests!), multi-sensory tours in the days ahead.
Let’s experience Sicily together!
