Wonderful experience into Sicily. We went shopping for ingredients in a local market and then back to the chef's own restaurant to cook. We still use the recipes (easy home made past, fresh tomatoes, fish with capers). The grandchildren played with the dough as we cooked outside. Charming, fun, a terrific experience for everyone.

The trip with the Tradizione Turismo company was perfect. Our driver, Tony, was magnificent. He was very skilled and safe on the road, making for relaxed passengers. During the rest of our trip in Italy and Croatia, we hired vans and drove ourselves. It was such a treat to be driven, and not have the constant hassle of traffic, and... More

Our trip to Sicily was first and foremost to find any information possible on my parents who were born there. We started our trip to Sicily with Rosy Bartolotta who gave us a private tour of Castelvetrano, which was my dad's birthplace. She helped me to obtain a copy of my dad's birth certificate and took me to the street... More

In addition to being native Sicilian, Virginia is extremely well educated and experienced in the history of this wonderful Sicilian city. The depth, detail and integration of centuries of civilizations, landmarks and events which she presents are a revelation and education you will want to experience. Many thanks to Virginia for opening Palermo's doors for us. Amazing!

We only had three of us plus our wonderful guide Giuseppina (Josephine translated). Having never been to Sicily before, we decided to take a look around... More
