I’m sure that many of you have had to cancel trips due to the coronavirus pandemic and would love to get away when it’s safe to do so in the future.

I was supposed to go with Lucas to China in February. We canceled that trip and decided to go to the Netherlands instead. We also had a family trip to the Galapagos planned for Spring Break. You can probably guess how that worked out. What can you do…

We all love a good deal and the Italian island of Sicily has an offer for you.

Frommer’s reports that “the government of this storied Italian island has put aside €500 million (about $595 million) to pay for 50% of the cost of airfare for anyone who comes in the months that tourism returns.”

I’ve heard great things over the years regarding Sicily and would love to visit. Half-price airfare will definitely have us look into taking a trip there.

If half price airfare isn’t enough of a deal, money from the fund will also pay for one out of every three nights of your hotel stay. That comes to another 33% discount!

Another benefit of visiting Sicily when it’s safe to travel again is that entry fees to museums and historic sites will be free. This will cost the government an additional €45 million (around $48 million US).

Frommer’s mentions that in the future there will be a form on the Sicily Tourism website to register for the rebates.

When tourism to Sicily returns, would you consider visiting primarily due to these generous savings being offered?
