Why this tour is so special

There are tours that open your eyes, as well as your mind, heart and soul, to experiencing what the world has to offer. This tour of Eastern Sicily is one of them. The Sicilian dialect term ‘’Shalarvi’’ has Arabian origins which comes from the word Shalai. This is a word used by Sicilians to express an intense satisfaction or pleasure of the soul. Indeed, this is something that is enjoyed from the first to the last moment. Would you like to find out about tours in this area?
