Sicily boasts seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites, more than any other region of Italy. The best way to experience them is with a professional tour guide who is trained as an historian, art historian, archeologist, naturalist, or other tourism professional. He or she will reveal a remarkable world to you. Equally important to enhancing your trip to Sicily is the engagement with the land and its people that local insiders, naturalistic guides, excursion operators, skippers, and chefs and home cooks will present to you. These all are Sicilians who love their home and are passionate about sharing it with you, and they will offer you the most memorable days of your itinerary. Open your heart to Sicilians, and they will offer you feelings of joy and adventure that will stay with you for years to come. I love to say that my tourism colleagues in Sicily are some of my favorite people on the planet. I hope you’ll agree!
