A small group of 12-14 are hosted by Renato on this wonderful tour of Sicily - embracing history, food, culture, wine and chocolate.

You have not tasted arancini until you have indulged in Sicily, the UNESCO listed sites, ancient Greek temples, the Baroque style of architecture - but for me the drive up to Mt Etna was a reality check on what an earthquake means, seeing all the lava which is used to make the roads and the submersion of a house.

Another delight was seeing Inspector Montalbano’s house - if you have not seen the TV series, indulge yourself. And a visit to the oldest Chocolate factory in Sicily - tasting included! Taormina - history, shopping - it is all in Sicily We are feted with only the best guides and expert driver, Enrico, and host Renato.
