Elene Marsden – Sicily (June 2018)

Everything was meticulously organised, nothing could have been better.  The highlights were the small group tour of the island of Sicily, wine tasting with Antonio and his wife Adora and not forgetting the Pizza making in Taormina.  A fantastic experience, the hotel for my second week in Giardini Naxos with sea views was beautiful – the holiday was a life changing experience.

When I was waiting for my ‘coach’ to collect me for the group tour of Sicily I thought I was in the wrong place as didn’t see any coaches, then a smart black mercedes pulled up with just 6 seats, the ‘small group’ was lovely Sergio the driver, Antonio our fabulous guide, myself and a German lady!!  So we were treated like royalty for a week with our own personal tour of Sicily. 

During the second week, on my own based at Hotel Nike, I joined several boat cruises, where we swam and ate and had fun in the sun!  I baked pizzas, tasted wine, walked up mountains & learnt a little Italian!
