My roots are Sicilian and two times a year in May and October I take a small group to Sicily for a unique tour of Europe's
Open Air Museum, Sicily. I also will take small groups at other times if requested.
And God created Sicily, a place where the mountains meet the sea. Sicily, the island in the sun, is home to heavenly beaches,
majestic mountains and Europe's greatest natural wonder, Mount Etna. Sicily's countryside is gold with orange and lemon orchards.
In northeastern Sicily you'll find lush forests. In the central regions you'll encounter rugged land and rolling hills. Dignified
vineyards, ancient olive groves, hardy almond orchards and endless wheat fields complete the picture. Summer is amber under
a blue sky. Winter brings palm trees dusted with snow in a surreal landscape. Spring presents a rainbow of wild flowers set
against the greenest fields.
You will find that Sicily is more than an island! Discover Sicily and discover the world. We Torontonians who live in one
of the most multicultural cities in the world could learn many lessons from the world's first multicultural society. Sicily
is Italy's (and Europe's) most historically cosmopolitan region, having been ruled by Asians, Africans and Europeans. Sicily
is black and white and a million shades of gray. There's no other place on Earth like Sicily.
