Giving emotions through a journey in our beautiful country is our aim: visiting a baroque UNESCO town or an enchanting Greek site, cooking the delicious Sicilian food with a starred Michelin chef or in an ancient villa, tasting a glass of a good Sicilian wine in a charming winery or dining in an exclusive noble palace, lying on a gold sandy beach or sailing along the sunny lively coastline. That is Sicily and that is Ragusa: "an island inside the island"!
You will live unforgettable experiences!
UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE
An enchanting classic tour, trough ancient towns and narrow streets that talk to our guests about a recent past still living in the noble baroque palaces and in the embroidered church facades. An exclusive experience with a special visit knocking at a Baron door that will introduce us back to the XVIII century atmosphere. UNESCO "Val di Noto" heritage is more than an experience: it is still alive in the magnificent buildings and in the nobles' way of life.
SICILY GOLF EXPERIENCE
TIME TO PLAY
Sicily has beautiful eighteen-hole courses located in some of its most beautiful areas.
This stunning Mediterranean island offers everything you could ever wish for a golf holiday: cracking courses, luxurious resorts, striking landscapes, lovely climate, history, culture, food, wine... the list is endless. At Eracle Travels we select the most beautiful and enchanting accommodations and courses for golfers combined with the most interesting cultural experiences! Since golf is not only a round in Sicily but an unforgettable experience!
One of the most exciting aspects of a gastronomic trip to Sicily is the chance to walk in the past trough all cultures that gave us our fantastic savors. Greeks may account for the preponderance of sweet-and-sour dishes in Sicilian cuisine, notably caponata; Arabs also gave us special products and unique desserts; and Spanish left in Sicily, among the others, the amazing Aztec chocolate. The tour will offer a wonderful experience with a cooking class with a Sicilian "mama" that will host us in the traditional kitchen of her noble manorhouse or with a starred Michelin chef, in a spectacular restaurant! And you can make the recipe of a good "arancini" or "cannolo di ricotta" when you come back home!
FROM ANCIENT TIMES TO ...
Sicily is the mirror of cultures that crossed our island during the centuries. The tour will show how to sight the past trough art, monuments, landscapes, uses and customs... The prehistoric Sicily, the dramatic Greek Sicily, the precious Roman Sicily, the colored Arabic Sicily, the elegant Norman Sicily, the pompous Spanish Sicily can be admired in a special cultural tour that does not forget the food and wine heritage, since they are witnesses of all those cultures that still live in the Sicilians!
SMELLS AND SAVOURS

NATURAL WONDERS AND UNIQUE ADVENTURES
Sicilian natural wonders wait to be experienced by the most adventurous travelers! It wil be very exciting to climb Mt Etna, the highest active volcano of Europe (mt 3350) or Stromboli volcano in the night and facing its amazing eruption! You will love a trekking tour in Pantalica, where 5.000 tombs talk us about the battles between the Siculi, first inhabitants of Sicily, and the Greeks. Not to forget a rafting in the Alcantara Gorges, with its black basalt stones, or a jeep Safari in the Iblei Mounts, with their unique Mediterranean bushes and lovely "agriturismi" restaurants! And a sailing with a scuba diving tour looking for the Greek and Roman shipwrecked treasures? In Sicily you can do all that and much more.....
BETWEEN HISTORY AND TRADITION
To take part to a Sicilian Festival is a very unique experience that you will never forget! Every town and village feasts its patron Saint with processions through the streets, fireworks, devotional food and drinks. As well as at Easter, when several sculptures depicting the sufferings of Jesus are carried through the streets of the city or recreate several important events portrayed from th
e Passion of Christ and the lifes of Saints. Besides, a very interesting festival is also the "Infiorata" in Noto, where a whole street is depicted with flowers and people in local traditional suites play a parade like in the XVIII Century. But you can not miss the Cous Cous festival in San Vito Lo Capo or the "festival of almond trees in Blossom" in Agrigento, where hundred of blossomed almond trees color the Greek temples!
