1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

1. The ruins of Agrigento and Segesta 2 The Phoenician settlement on Mozia

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Don't fly Alitalia!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Certainly supported the local economy, and was very environmentally aware

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Very busy, as expected, but very enjoyable with the exception of the appalling chaos at Catania airport, waiting over an hour to be checked in by one checker for all the Alitalia flights leaving Catania that morning, while the express check-in had two operatives. The crowning glory was that our luggage never left the airport. I await its arrival with eager anticipation!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Visiting outstanding classical sights such as the quarry in Syracuse where 7000 athenians were enslaved, or the temples of Akragas, the theatre of Segesta carved into the hillside, the island of Motya overrun by Dionysius. The Palatine Chapel in Palermo is breathtaking.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

This is a very busy schedule. Be prepared to feel that you haven't had enough time at many of the sites.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The local people need the tourist income, and I guess at least some of the fees from the sites finds its way to conservation projects.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

A lightning tour of some fabulous sites in Sicily. A bit like a fine dining taster menu that leaves one wanting more.
