The companion blog to Sicily's most popular website welcomes your comments, observations and opinions about Sicilian travel, culture, art, archaeology, history, sightseeing, food and wine... and all things Sicilian.
Lately we've received a number of queries asking us to define terms like tour operator, travel consultant, travel planner and even "cultural association" as these refer to tours in Sicily. For the most part, these questions arrive from those planning tours for fairly large groups - let's say more than ten travellers. To some degree, they reflect concerns spawned by recent changes in legislation in Italy's travel industry. As part of our series on topics for travel agents (and for anybody planning such a visit) we've finally published a Sicily tour operator article.
With over two million readers per year, Best of Sicily (online since 1999) is Sicily's most popular website and most widely read international publication. Best of Sicily is travel, culture, cuisine, people, places, history, archeology, art and all things Sicilian. Various services and products are advertised on the site, including frequent tours of Sicily.
