Ideas for your Sicilian food and wine tour

Tastings, cooking lessons, gastronomic tours, also tailor-made

Sicily is a region waiting to be discovered through fascinating itineraries that span nature, history, tradition and typical Sicilian food and wine. Sicily is home to two striking volcanoes, Stromboli and Etna, the largest active volcano in Europe. Not to be missed by nature lovers are the Madonie and Nebrodi Regional Parks, and the volcanic paradise of Pantelleria, dotted with the characteristic dammusi, traditional lava stone buildings.

The Aeolian Archipelago, included in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 2000, consists of seven enchanting islands: Lipari, Vulcano, Stromboli, Salina, Filicudi, Alicudi and Panarea. Another UNESCO World Heritage treasure is the archaeological area of Agrigento, one of the most important cities of Magna Graecia. Surrounded by olive trees, almond trees, citrus groves and vineyards stretching out towards the sea is the famous Valley of the Temples.

Two other UNESCO sites not to be missed are the eight splendid Baroque towns of the Val di Noto and the Villa Romana del Casale in Piazza Armerina. Palermo is a picturesque city, dominated by the polychrome marble of the palaces, including the sumptuous Norman Palace (or Royal Palace of Palermo) with its Palatine Chapel and the Arabian domes, the colourful Vucciria market.

Sicilian cuisine has a dense history, where the Greek, Arab and Norman traditions are still alive and palpitating. Famous are the juicy citrus fruits, the extra virgin olive oil, the Pachino tomatoes and the Bronte pistachios: Sicilian foods not to be missed during a traditional Sicilian food and wine tour for all tastes! Aubergines are the protagonists of many famous Sicilian dishes: from caponata to pasta alla Norma and parmigiana. Not forgetting the famous cheese and excellent Sicilian wine with its strong, full-bodied flavour. And finally, food in Sicily also means local pastries to pair with the renowned dessert wines from Sicily: cassata, cannoli, ice creams, granitas and sorbets.
