Volcano, body rafting, temple, beach Hello, I am planning an 8 day Sicily trip with rented car. Accommodation in apartments/airbnb. Since I speak Italian and the local dialect, we have no language barriers as English is hardly spoken there even in tourist areas. I am looking for 3-9 open-minded young at heart people who are up for a great vacation mix. This mix consists of culture, beach, adventure, Italian food, fantastic weather and of course getting to know each other and the real inhabitants in the villages. For example, my aunt who lives there would be able to cook Sicilian food for us. I have planned meeting point Palermo airport. Rent a car (for up to 5 people 1 car, for up to 10 people we take 2 cars), drive to Cefalu, where we stay one day, then continue to Taormina (city), Gole d'alcantara (volcanic canyon body rafting), climb volcano, here we stay 3 nights. Then on to Agrigento (Valley of the Temples, beach, Scala die Turchi) , staying here another 3 nights. Return to Palermo. Travel budget I have planned that about 50 euros for car rental, 50 euros for gasoline, 150 euros for guided tour volcano, 50 euros for guided tour for Gole d'alcantara, 250 euros for accommodation and 80 euros for trip leader fee go on it. All per person, makes about 630 euros for the 8 days. In addition, the journey costs about 100 to 200 euros depending on the place of departure. Food will be the same or cheaper than in Germany, so I have not added this, because this is also at home. Just get in touch and have a look at the rough planning. It is best to get in touch as early as possible, so that we can book flights and accommodation quickly. For any questions, ask me.
