Sicily multiple days (private guide and transportation included)


Discover the beauty of Sicily following this innovativeTour! Responsible ecotourism includes those that minimize the negative aspects of conventional tourism on the environment and enhance the cultural integrity of local people. This tour wants to propose a new perspective of Sicily, far from the stereotypes widespread in the world. That is why it is so important for me to present the face of a Contemporary Sicily and some wonderful examples of Modern Art and Architecture.
I will help you to travel with socially conscious issues in mind. Social awareness on the island was raised in the 1960s by anthropologist Danilo Dolci, who was appalled at the living and working conditions of the people in postwar Sicily, and made it his life's mission to recruit volunteers from all over the world to rectify the situation.
At the time of booking I'll offer my guests a list of infrastructures that leads with those ideals.
I can customize this Tour for groups with maximum 10 guests.
You can also book only one day Tour.
