Sicily ain’t the place you’ve seen in the movies. This Anti-Mafia tour explains why…

The moment you’ve experienced your fill of beaches and vineyards, on Contiki’s Serious Sicily vacation, you are going to sign up for up with a area guidebook in entrance of the opulent Teatro Massimo, a single of the most jaw-dropping opera residences in Europe. Snaking by the historic centre, you’ll meet all of the business enterprise house owners who have bravely united in opposition to the Mafia safety rackets.

At every stop you will learn about how this inspiring civic movement initially fashioned: with hoteliers, farmers, and restaurant house owners staring down Mafioso culture and stating: “Enough”. (And try to remember, as this is a MAKE Vacation MATTER® practical experience, you’ll be supporting the Anti-Mafia motion monetarily by Contiki, in alignment with the 11 objectives of our sustainability technique).

From confiscated Mafia HQs turned into academic neighborhood centres, to going street artwork that documents the Anti-Mafia movement, this tour isn’t just about organised criminal offense, but the quite soul of Sicily: filled with beauty, society, defiance and incredibly, extremely great food stuff. Make certain you cease by Antica Focacceria at the stop of the tour (a single of Palermo’s oldest eateries and a noteworthy Anti-Mafia establishment), and you’ll get a delicious thought of what we indicate.
