Thank you all so much for your help planning this trip! Just to recap...my father, sister, brother-in-law and I surprised my mom for a big birthday with a family trip to Sicily. She has been doing a lot of family ancestry research so she is more than excited to go, especially with all of us!
Here is our (basically) finalized itinerary!!! If there is anything you see that we should change or add, I'd appreciate your help. I know it's a very full itinerary, but we like to keep busy!
