And so you think Sicily is a mafia unsafe country. Well, you just miss out something real important

Few months ago, I flew to Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, located in Italy.

The friendly nature of the locals, the beautiful, scenic view of the Mediterranean sea, the cobblestone streets, the little shops that dotted the winding pavements and the Greek temples mesmerize me. There are many things for me to write about Sicily. Before going further, let me put out a map of Sicily:

I took up Insight Vacations land tour. It’s reputable and wholly owned subsidiary of The Travel Corporation. My itinerary includes Catania, Taormina, Syracuse, Ragusa, Agrigento, Marsala, Trapani, Palermo and Messina.

Sicily is not the crowded fashion capital of Milan or the Vatican City in Rome. In fact, some sites require transport and it’s not easy to hail a cab. So, I need someone who does the logistics and the nitty-gritties, who know how to speak fluent Italian, manage and coordinate things with people they know, including the “unspoken rules” – tips, places I should go and should not, you know these sort of things that you want to worry the least. The fact that, mafia activities are known to be in Sicily but don’t worry, it’s safe for tourist like me because I figure that Insight Vacations will take charge of all.

Well, they did and provide much more than I expect! The experience I have is completely mind-blowing. Excellent service with ample time to view the attractions. What makes it special is the professionalism of the Tour Manager, premium offerings and the opportunity to meet and interact with people across Europe. Life and travel stories are shared amongst people.

Insight Vacations is the only land tour company in Singapore that offers Sicily. You can book a tour with them directly. I still have a few SGD$50.00 vouchers left, as of today that I write this article.  If you want the vouchers, please email me directly and I’ll pass to you personally.

Only available for people residing in Singapore. Specially for my readers of

In Sicily one of my favourites is Taormina. This picture is taken from my hotel room. The backdrop reveals Mt. Etna (Europe tallest active volcano)

  1. obviously like your website but you have to check the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless Ill definitely come back again. deadeebkedfe


    1. Hi Johne

      Thanks for your comment.

      Appreciate it. I just started this website not long ago. Still quite new to WordPress but learning it gradually.

      I will take note of the spelling errors.

      Hope to see you back again 🙂

      Kind Regards,
