Why Sicily?

When Sicily calls, say “Si! Si! Si!” without hesitation…

Slide background

You must give Sicily her due respect… AngelinaVagabonda, LLC believes that you will then begin to feel goia (joy)…

Slide background

Discover Sicily, the innocent, with whom you must be patient to allow her secrets to be revealed…

Slide background

Refreshing granita, intoxicating zagara (citrus blossoms), waves along the lungamore (road to the sea), enduring stone ruins and mythical mountains of Sicily…

Slide background

Sicily is like a woman longing to be touched and indulged: her curvaceous roads lead to gelato, torta, baba, baci di dame…

Slide background

Che Bella Sicilia…Sicily has it all: sun, sea, Mt. Etna, and the riches of her soil…

Slide background

“In the grotta, the water was crystal clear. I dove from the side of the fishing boat and started swimming out into the wide open sea…”

Slide background

The three seas of Sicily renew… feel your stress slip away into her waters…

Slide background

Every time is a good time to dip into Sicily’s seas…

Slide background

Local fisherman set out poles and wait…they are in touch with the bigness of her sea that may give them nothing, but even in nothing there is something…

Slide background

8,000 miles away…right at home…

Slide background

An espresso here, a connolo there, sprinkled with falling jasmine petals and topped with a Gothic Cathedral…

Slide background

Riccola, dentice, gamberi, totano, calamari, sepia, ricci, pesce spade, tonno, polipo… Pesce (fish/seafood), grilled or steamed, with a squeeze of lemon and a drop of locally pressed extra virgin olive oil…

Slide background

The flavors! The fragrances! The sounds! The shapes! The magic of Sicily!

Slide background

I fagolini…

Slide background

Prima sale, cascio cavallo, ricotta…

Slide background

Sicilians know the fruits from their seas…

Slide background

Every morning, I open the wooden shutters, the front door, and the iron gate, saying, “Buongiorno Sicilia.”

 

 

 

 

Nobody

had to ask the Greeks, OR the Romans OR the Normans OR the Arabs…

FAQ’s & Services

WHO ARE WE?

We are specialists in travel to Sicily and can create the experience of a lifetime for you

WHY USE A SICILIAN CONCIERGE SERVICE?

We are not a travel agency. We love Sicily and know her intimately. We have spent the better part of seven (7) years learning all of the secrets Sicily has to tell. We are a tour operator and a travel planner who designs CUSTOM trips for our clients EXCLUSIVELY in Sicily. We are at your service to design SPECIFICALLY for you. We DO NOT work with incoming agencies. The map of Sicily is in our head! We have been gathering the best of the best. To paraphrase Caesar, “We came, We fell in love, We want to share!”

Clients are responsible for their own arrangements and for the payment of those arrangements. We are your counsel, therefore we let you handle all of the particulars; you will be making your own reservations.
FULL SERVICE: When you say “SI, SI, SI” to Sicily alla AngelinaVagabonda, you only have to think about making your flights. Once your Custom itinerary has been designed and agreed upon, we will handle the reservations and payments on your behalf. With FULL SERVICE contracts, you will receive a packet of travel information prior to your departure. We only accept full service planning when hotel reservations are part of the itinerary.

DO YOU HAVE A BROCHURE?

DO YOU PROVIDE A BREAKDOWN OF COSTS?

WHAT WILL I BE SPENDING ON MY CUSTOM ITINERARY?

Since AngelinaVagabonda designs Custom Itineraries, there is no way of knowing the cost until you select the components. We can provide you with a non-binding estimate prior to signing the contract as well as designing the scope of your experience. The window, from basic to deluxe is $900 US – $1,600 US per couple/per day. This pricing is dependent on: transportation (public or private); historic guides, quality of hotels, room categories (view, jr. suite, etc), escorted or unescorted welcome package, translator to name a few of the variables.

From Sicily, 8,000 miles away, you don’t need me to tell you that when an Italian sets the table, the table is set! In Sicily, there are three “F’s”; you know the first, the other two are food and family OR family and food. Al fresco – eating outside in the summer is never given […]

Birds & Bees

The first thing I do every morning at my Sicilian house is open the front door, front wooden shutters and the iron gate. This is both practical and symbolic. I want to let in all of Sicily. To quote Rosalind Russell in the production of “Mame,” “life is a banquet and most people are starving.” […]

Fishing

Posted by Admin | September 9, 2013 | 0 Comments

Every morning in the summer where I live there are the local fishermen who set out a couple of polls and wait for the fish to bite. Maybe they will have luck, maybe not. That’s not the point. They are in touch with the bigness of the sea and what they see while they are […]

Icarus

My education was at an all-girls catholic high school, with one male teacher, 5-6 ‘lay’ teachers and the rest were nuns. I was taught the classics – mythology and Latin were among my classes. I remember reading, in Latin, (the drudgery of the Latin pronunciations is indelible in my memory) the story of Icarus and […]

Grocery Shopping

So, I buy a house in a country that shops everyday – “fare le spezie.” What do I hate to do? Shop for groceries! There are those Sicilians who still believe that if you buy your necessary items for ‘cena’ (the evening meal) at the same time you are buying your food items for pranzo […]

Stones

Posted by Admin | September 9, 2013 | 0 Comments

Along the coast of Sicily, there are many beaches. On the East Coast, the Ionian Sea, along the straights of Messina they are sometimes sandy but mostly black volcanic boulders. On the North Coast, there is sand and stones. For most of my life I have pushed the river. Although I have been advised by […]

Granita

Posted by Admin | September 9, 2013 | 0 Comments

My Sicily, the Sicily that I prefer is the Sicily of Spring or Fall. Summer not only embraces the sun and the tourists, but Granita, one of the true indicators of summer. The heat of the summer is too much for me, but there is always Granita! Granita is a delicately flavored slushy ice refresher. […]
