After you have had your fill of seashores and vineyards, on Contiki’s Authentic Sicily vacation, you are going to sign up for up with a regional guide in entrance of the opulent Teatro Massimo, just one of the most jaw-dropping opera houses in Europe. Snaking via the historic centre, you are going to meet up with all of the enterprise house owners who have bravely united in opposition to the Mafia defense rackets.
At just about every prevent you will study about how this inspiring civic motion originally formed: with hoteliers, farmers, and cafe house owners staring down Mafioso tradition and saying: “Enough”. (And keep in mind, as this is a MAKE Travel MATTER® knowledge, you’ll be supporting the Anti-Mafia motion monetarily by Contiki, in alignment with the 11 goals of our sustainability strategy).
From confiscated Mafia HQs turned into educational group centres, to moving avenue artwork that files the Anti-Mafia motion, this tour is not just about organised crime, but the pretty soul of Sicily: loaded with natural beauty, society, defiance and pretty, incredibly superior meals. Make absolutely sure you halt by Antica Focacceria at the finish of the tour (a single of Palermo’s oldest eateries and a notable Anti-Mafia establishment), and you’ll get a scrumptious concept of what we necessarily mean.
