During a recent trip to Sicily with Gate 1 Travel, my wife and I stayed in the Una Hotel Palace. This was arranged as part of our tour with Gate 1 and we were extremely pleased with our accomodations. In the heart of the city, we were within walking distances of many shops, restaurants, and attractions. The picture for this hotel in taken from the 7th floor patio bar where we sat several nights drinking wine, eating cheese, bread, and olives as a group of us viewed Mt. Etna from our seats. Gate 1 arranged the Una Hotel Palace for us as part of our tour and I'm so glad they did. In fact, every hotel we stayed in was top quality, had very helpful staff, and was very clean. Helpful hint on picking hotels is to find the ones the tour companies use. Gate 1 sends their people out to check on them and they find only the best if they want people coming back.
