Day Tours Malta-Sicily

Daytrip malta sicily
A nice way to give even more substance to your holiday in Malta is a day tour to Sicily. You can book the ferry to Sicily or book a fully organized tour. 
The advantage of booking a tour is that they know what nice places to take you to while you have limited time on the island. The disadvantage is that this costs a bit, but renting a car is perhaps even less economical.
It's not very cheap (the ferry is already quite pricey) but the people who book the trips are usually very enthusiastic.
Some tours take quite a long time because you want to get the most out of them. So 15 hours on the road is no exception.

Tours often include Syracuse (the oldest city in Italy), Mount Etna, and Taormina. If this is a nice idea, you can consider the following tours:
