It's nice to be able to report a new Sicilian initiative and this time the island seems to be responding to what tourists want:  from September this year tourists will be able to download audio guides free of charge from the website listentosicily and use them on their iPods, Mp3 players, cellphones or other interactive audio technology as they travel from place to place.

The idea is the inspiration of the independent Catania publishing house Villaggio Maori Edizioni S.A.S and is being developed in partnership with the Provincia Regionale di Ragusa, the Comune of Ragusa and the Comune of Modica.  The first audio guides to be launched will be to Ragusa Ibla, Modica and Scicli, followed by guides to the whole of eastern Sicily.

The audio guides will be available in Italian, English, French, German and Spanish and will suggest innovative itineraries such as gastronomic tours as well as traditional cultural itineraries.

Well done, Villaggio Maori and Ragusa Province!

That's a wonderful idea. I'm sure the tourists who use it will really benefit from having more info!
