Discover Sicily

Our verdict:

If you get itchy feet after a few days relaxing in the sun, the answer has to be this singles-only holiday with excursions included. As well as the facilities of a centrally-located hotel in Palermo, enjoy exploring Mount Etna, for example, and even a guided street food tour in the footsteps of Rick Stein. Yum!

Friendship Travel says

Sicily is one of the most fascinating and intoxicating islands in the Med. It’s a great choice if you simply want to relax in the sun but there is so much more to explore from Mount Etna to the rich culture, ancient history and atmospheric cities.

  • excursions included
  • singles only
  • your own double room

We introduced holidays for solo travellers to Sicily recently, with a number of fantastic excursions included in the price.

Sicily is a fascinating island whose unique culture reflects its turbulent past. Our new base is the modern four-star Cristal Palace Hotel in the thrilling city of Palermo. This central hotel makes it easy to discover Sicilian history, art, food and much more.

Of course, no trip to Sicily would be complete without seeing the live volcano of Mt Etna, which is one of the amazing experiences included in our holiday package.

We have our own table for breakfast each morning and the price includes four dinners – three at the hotel and one which is an eat-while-you-walk guided tour of Palermo’s street food, as enjoyed by TV chef Rick Stein!

Our own Friendship host will be on hand throughout to smooth the wheels.

We think it’s the perfect way to discover beautiful Sicily, in like-minded company and for a fantastic price – from £1,195 for one week including flights.

We don’t have age-specific departures but the ages are generally between 35 and 65 years (the minimum is 25 years with no upper limit).
