Our small-group tours of less than 12 people offer travelers special opportunities to interact with locals–even if they only speak Italian and you only speak English. Between our local, English speaking guides and my cultural interpretation (both literally from the Italian language and conceptually, by discussing Sicilian culture with you through an American lens), we have many stimulating conversations each day–everything from how Norman King Roger II (d. 1154) cultivated a Renaissance in Sicily two centuries before the better-publicized Florentine one to how in the last 25 years, the presence of the Sicilian Mafia has changed dramatically, inspired in large part by the deaths of these two judges, pictured, Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino.
When you travel with Experience Sicily, we aim to inspire you intellectually, so once you’ve returned home, your journey of discovery has only just begun.

Wow! I had to read this last part three times to really understand what recent history I was reading and looking at. Good work!
This is a very famous image, seen throughout Sicily, so it’s a great starting point for discussions.
