Sicily a la carte
  • Back to the start
  • The two of you
  • With the kids
  • With friends
  • With the team
  • Or, in a classic car
  • How it all started…

    From the age of 16, I almost always went on vacation in Italy. As often and as long as possible. La Vita e Bella, or La dolce vita, I loved it. The fascination for Italy has remained and I have been living and working in Sicily for many years now, it still feels wonderful!


    My love for Italy, good food and good cooking and passion for Italian vintage cars, eventually 13 years ago made me start 13 years ago with Hidden Sicily. At Hidden Sicily and now Sicily à la carte also, as a travel-loving customer, you end up with a small travel organization that organizes tailor-made tours in Sicily. The linchpin and backbone of the company is me, Ben Hofman.

    Perfect combination

    As a Dutchman, I have been living and working in Sicily for 12 years and that is where Sicily a la carte clearly stands out from other tour operators. The combination of someone who has and knows the same punctual mentality of the customer, but also lives in Italy and thus has learned to deal with the charming but far from organized Sicilian mentality is unique. It is precisely this combination that ensures that you can fully enjoy the pleasures of the island, carefree and in complete freedom!

    Own experience

    I myself slept and had breakfast in all hotels, ate in all restaurants and explored all the roads for you, from boulevard to dirt road. Everything you will find in the trips offered by Sicily à la carte is therefore seen, tested and approved. When you have a question and mail or call us, you will get me, I, Ben Hofman, will respond to you personally.

    Have you become curious about Sicily and would you like to discover this beautiful, intriguing Italian island? mail or call and we will make it an unforgettable travel experience!

    Kind regards, Ben Hofman
