This week, we’re giving you an insider’s view of what traveling with us is like in Sicily. Yesterday we wrapped up our first 2022 tour with a group of women touring this stunning island. One of the guests was doing this tour for the third time! Letting other people (us) do the planning for you while you soak up life in the slowdown are what dreamboards are made of. Judging by the photos our guests have been sharing, highlights of the tour include: watching the sunset in Pollara with a glass of prosecco; wine tasting; walking the beautiful streets of Ortigia; and lunch at the countryside home of a real, honest-to-goodness countess. Don’t ask about a favorite moment — it’s too hard to choose just one! We have two more Sicily trips scheduled for this September. Choose from September 2-10 or 11-19, 2022 (both are co-ed).

Last week, we wrote about the variety of places we eat during our Sicily tour. Topping the (long) list of crowd-pleasers is the rooftop at Seven, where we go on our first night in Palermo. Here are seven things we love about Seven: incredible views, the music, the friendly staff, the risotto with turnip greens, the buffalo stracciatella, the spiced cashew nuts, and their seafood appetizers. We also surprised one of our guests with a special birthday treat, right after watching the sunset as they sipped their vino. Nothing makes us happier than giving our guests nights like these that they’ll remember forever. PS Happy Birthday, Indy!

The final nights of the tour are spent in Taormina, and this year our guests stayed at the stunning Hotel Villa Diodoro. Book a sea-view room for vistas that will make you want to extend your stay and chill poolside even longer (one of our guests did just that this year!). ‘Cuz you’re in Italy, and it’s not over ‘til it’s over. Our tour has a vibe, and as we wind down we have you set up in a calm, comfortable atmosphere for your last nights in Italy. We want you to head home feeling fresh and energized, knowing that you slept at the best of places. Hotel Villa Diodoro is a guest favorite, with its own restaurant, bar, and wellness center. All that’s missing is watching actual lava flow down a volcano from your hotel room. Nope, wait, we have you covered for that too!
