Q: What makes a vacation with you unforgettable?

A: The attention and dedication that our staff puts into designing each travel itinerary based on the client’s requests and needs. Each trip is unique and special to us.

Q: What are travel tips of Manuela Corvaja for our readers?

A: To those who have already visited Sicily, I suggest coming back to discover places not yet seen: Sicily is a very large island full of hidden treasures (both in terms of landscape and culture) and one trip does not allow you to see everything. You will get to discover places and have new experiences again and again. And for those who haven’t already visited them, I remind you that the smaller islands are also all beautiful and worth a trip! On the other hand, for those who have never come to Sicily, I recommend the wonderful experience of a guided tour to get an overview and a general completeness. One can then return to see places that are new or that have remained in the heart.

Manuela’s ‘extra’ advice:

I would like to mention that in Sicily, the winter season is charming too and I recommend it as a destination to experience the thrill of skiing on Mount Etna while seeing the sea on a wonderful sunny day; to experience the third most famous religious festival in the world-in Catania with the celebration on the occasion of Catania’s patron saint St. Agatha-to visit the wonderful Christmas markets and the living and non-living nativity scenes that grace the entire island during the holiday season. Choose us! We are waiting for you with open arms and will be happy to design a unique and unforgettable trip for you!
