As much as we love various Sicily travel sites, we're obviously a little partial to our own. One useful thing you'll find on Best of Sicily are tour guides in Sicily. This includes tour guides in Palermo and, of course, guides in other parts of our island.
The whole idea is that even independent travellers sometimes enjoy having a guide once in a while, even if it's only for a day. That's why we publish the guide page.
There are also some specialists in things like family history tours, and we've even listed a guide in Malta.
Our partner, Sicily Concierge, is offering some exceptional travel & hotel packages in Taormina and Palermo through the American Express Selects® programme. Realistically, Taormina is easy enough to see on your own, but the package does include an excursion to Mount Etna. If you visit Palermo for a few days, a personalised guided tour might be a perfect way to discover the ancient, medieval and baroque history of this fascinating city.
Whatever you decide, come to Sicily this year!
