Pure Sicilian Love in Italy
“Visiting Italy without going to Sicily leaves no image in the spirit. It is Sicily that is the key to everything!“ –
Goethe, German poet
Italy Charme, our agent in Italy, has created a new culinary and art programme: 14 days Pure Sicilian Love. Sicily is an extraordinary, complex and magical mix of different communities including Arab, Roman and Turkish. It is a unique destination with diverse culture and cuisine that has been influenced by these various communities. The tour visits local ‘slow food’ farmers; explores the challenging life of Sicilian fishermen; and gives a taste into the history of pistacchio and chocolate; and so much more.
Here are a few highlights:
Trapani Salt Road & Pecorino Cheese Workshop
Etna Train Wine Tour
Modica Chocolate Vibes
The chocolate in Modica is made using a very old recipe, originating from the Aztecs. If you are wondering what the Aztecs have to do with Sicily, think about the Spanish conquistadors in South America. These same people also dominated Sicily for a couple of centuries.
Catania Fish Market
Catania Fish Market is a market that has not changed for centuries. This lively, boisterous and colourful market is full of locals and the perfect place to breathe in a slice of the Sicilian lifestyle.
