TourCrafters’ Wintertime “Sicily Hot Deal” Starts As Low As $929

TourCrafters’ Wintertime “Sicily Hot Deal” Starts As Low As $929 ( Libertyville, IL, December 3, 2007—As a result of Sicily’s crazy mixed-up history, it is different from the rest of Italy. It’s also warmer, with winter temperatures hovering in the low 60s. For those looking for a winter getaway on a sunny Mediterranean island, with beautiful scenery, historic treasures and fabulous food, TourCrafters has come up with a “Sicily Hot Deal” that starts as low as $929.

The 7-day/6-night $929 package, valid from January 8 to March 20, 2008, includes round-trip air from New York and Boston to either Palermo or Catania, three nights accommodation at the 3-star Hotel Cristal Palace in Palermo, three nights accommodation at the 3-star Hotel Stesicorea in Catania, daily breakfast, seven days car rental, hotel service charges and taxes.

Departures from Chicago cost an additional $49. Though the 3-star hotels mentioned above are comfortable and well located, upgrades to 4-star hotels are available: from $16 in Catania and from $44 in Palermo.

Depending on which arrival city is chosen, travelers either stay in Catania for three days (seeing the city’s baroque splendors and visiting nearby Taormina, Mount Etna and small villages), then drive to Palermo (exploring the old city, it’s patrician mansions, cathedral, market, and nearby attractions like Monreale), or they do the whole program in reverse.

TourCrafters also offers a special 8-day/7-night wine and food package, “A Taste of Sicily,” from January 1 to March 20, which starts at $1,560 and includes all of the above plus 4-star hotels, wine tastings and some meals.

All prices are per person, double occupancy, and are subject to availability. Airport taxes ($100) and fuel surcharge ($210) are not included in the quoted prices. Reservations must be booked by December 31 and must be paid for within 72 hours of booking.
