A moderately challenging one week trekking holiday to the beautiful Aeolian archipelago off the coast of Sicily in Italy.  These islands are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and with their black sand beaches, thermal springs and active volcanoes you can see why! Trek on Vulcano, Liapri and Stromboli. On mainland Sicily you can trek on Mt Etna which at 3350m, is the highest active volcano in Europe.  This is a great trip for someone looking to enjoy a mix of walks, town visits, culture and optional challenging volcano treks.

There are 5 days of 3-6 hours walking (plus optional climbs on Stromboli and Mt Etna and transport used includes boat, bus, hydrofoil and 4WD. Group size is usually 6 – 15 plus a leader and accommodation is in comfortable apartments and hotels.

Flying to Catania on Sicily you transfer to Milazzo harbour and take a boat to Lipari. There is a wonderful scenic walk on Lipari’s south coast and to enjoy fabulous Sicilian food and wine. Trek to the crater on Vulcano, bath in hot springs and mud baths. Take the optional trek up active Stromboli at sunset to the summit and on Mount Etna you can trek or take a 4WD to the summit.  Also time for sightseeing in Catania.

This is just one of a range of walking and cultural holidays on offer throughout Italy – get in touch for other options and to check dates and prices.  Or we can tailor make a holiday to Italy if you prefer private travel.

The travel and private meet and greet transfer on arrival went smoothly (even though it was bank holiday weekend!). The hotel was lovely (Palazzo Giovanelli) and had great views - very close to the Rialto Bridge. Venice has so much to offer and plenty of restaurant choices, but as expected very expensive. The guided tours are necessary to get a real understanding of the city.

We spent a week in Sicily this July all organised by Travel by Jules. This is our 4th holiday with them and as always everything has been great. Sicily is a beautiful island, everything was well organised by Jules and Mags as expected. We received some information about Sicily before hand (thank you so much for the map) and once there it felt stress free the resort chosen was very good and we took advantage of the free bus trip to Taormina. Thank you Jules and Mags it was a great holiday.

Thank you for your organisation of our holiday to Rome and Sorrento. All ran very smoothly ! Locations of both hotels was good. Too many highlights to mention here but we saw such amazing sites in Rome and then loved visiting Pompeii via the local train . We were happy we took your advice and only stayed in Rome for four nights, more would have wiped us out!

Thank you for your organising our last minute city break to Palermo we thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. The junior suite at Hotel Quintocanto was worth the extra and you couldn't ask for a better location. We understand that the reason for the cancellation for our return flight was indeed strike action in Italy. We commend yourselves and the operator for how you handled the change to plan.

In my view life is too short NOT to use Julie's experience and contacts when booking a holiday! I couldn't recommend Travel With Jules more highly.

As usual the whole organisation, choice of hotel, resort and weather was impeccable. And you arranged for Vesuvius not to blow it's top whilst we were there. So that's another item ticked off the list: I am amazed I've finally seen Pompeii and particularly Herculaneum. We don’t do holidays that are so relaxing that we really, REALLY, DON’T WANT TO GO HOME! AND IT WAS ALL YOUR FAULT......

Jules took the stress out of finding a hotel at Lake Garda that was not full in September and was perfect for our requirements. It was lovely to have a friendly voice on the end of the phone. Thank you for all your knowledge and advice.

One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
