STAY SAFE AND VISIT SICILY!

Dear friends, we can eventually state that Sicily is, once again, a safe place to visit!

The number of Covid-19 cases are, in fact, lower and lower: we reached the peak of 2,301 infected people at the beginning of April and now they are just 138, on a population of over 5 million inhabitants!

As the safety of all travelers is our first interest, we have updated our terms and conditions according to the Italian law related to Covid-19, and for this reason any experience we provide -just as a reminder: we provide PRIVATE experiences only!- includes the following steps:


1. At the beginning of the experience, we will measure the temperature of all travelers in a group with a professional thermometer. If the temperature is below 37°C - 98.6°F we will carry out the experience;
2️. In the car or other means of transportation face masks and gloves must be worn at all times. We will provide them;
3️. In museums and other closed areas face masks must be worn at all times.

Restaurants and other venues have special rules, so please do not hesitate to contact us to get to know them.
