I want to go to Sicily - My husband has family in Caltabellotta that he's never met. My ancestors came from Sciacca, an I would love to see that town. Of cause do the sites, an eat at the real food places of Sicily - NO Tourist food for me - I want real cannoli's home made ricotta off the beaten trail dinning, shopping. I'd like to see both East & West coast of Sicily, But Have NO idea what town to stay in
I also feel - It maybe the one an only time I ever go to Italy An must See Rome - Even if it's just for The Sistine chapel an Ruins.
I would love at lest a 14 day stay. Figuring I'd lose 2 days in traveling from the USA.
It will be 2 families , A total of 9 people. The youngest child is 15yrs. old an the others are 18 - 20 yrs old.
Is it possible to do this trip for $3800 pp with international airfare? If we take 3 triple rooms would that help us with the prices?
So far Kensington Tours gave me a price of 50,000 WITHOUT airfare. But it was a 16 day trip. with tours an breakfast, an a few dinners. WAY TOO MUCH MONEY for us.
Thinking that if we cut the stay to 12-14 days Is it possible I could get the trip down to 3800 USD per -person...
We want to see Sicily yet we want to relax with family too..
Should We just book our flights an hotel an forget about those touring packages?
