Hola, nos gustaría ir a dos parejas de más de 50 años a Sicilia en Octubre de 2015 , una semana y habíamos pensado en hacer un circuito guiado, pero no conocemos muchas páginas donde te puedan ofrecer un buen servicio a un precio económico. Me gustaría recibir respuestas de gente que ya haya estado y con sus experiencias hacerme una idea de qué hacer, visitar, algo que no me pueda perder. Gracias a quien me escriba. Un saludo. Montse
