 "the clue" to understanding Italy & our Greco-Roman Heritage

The greatest Greek temples and theatres, the finest Roman mosaics, World Heritage baroque palaces, ancient stone hilltop villages, the matchless Arabic-Byzantine gold of Monreale, gardens by the blue, blue sea, and absolutely great cooking.

Sicily is also the land of myth and history, monsters and heroes, including Cyclops, Ulysses, Aeneas, Sappho, Empedocles, Theocritus, Archimedes, Cicero, Santa Lucia, Frederick II, Bellini, Garibaldi, Pirandello, Falcone, Al Pacino, and Inspector Montalbano.

As Goethe said,
                                "To have seen Italy without without having seen Sicily
                                  is to not have seen Italy at all,
                                  for Sicily is the clue to everything."

SICILY TOUR is a small tour company (parent company, Mondo Midani Vacanze) specializing in intelligent and insightful visits to Sicily and Italy.

With over four decades of experience,
and living in the ancient heart of Siracusa, Sicily's most historic city,
we are the experts . . . or we know who is.
