David & Vas in Sicily - Travelive Reviews

David & Vas, USA

Dear Mina,

We have been to Italy many times, but this year we wanted to try something different. Thank god, our friend referred us to Kostas, as he opened our eyes to the south of Italy, that quite honestly, we never considered visiting.

Our kids loved everything about the trip. We are more of an adventurous family, and not so much into the whole historic aspect, however this trip was the perfect mix of both. Mount Etna should be visited at least once in your lifetime. Truly amazing.

Our hotels were very family friendly, and the restaurants recommended by our guides were delicious. We felt like locals, and this was by far our best trip to Italy.
