WESTERN SICILY 
OCTOBER , 2024

            

Life in Sicily is lived in Technicolor.  Conversations take place in the sing-song dialect of the south, as vendors in the open air produce and fish markets hawk their wares. Greek, Roman, Arab, and Norman influences can be seen throughout the art and architecture left behind by the many cultures who once called Sicily their home. 

 

Our Western Sicily tour takes you along the northern coast visiting Trapani, Marsala, Favignana, Enna, and Cefalu, to enjoy some of the very best culinary gems the island has to offer such as pistachios, couscous, fish, almonds, citrus, granita, gelato, Grillo and Marsala wines, and more. Sail to Egadi Islands, visit the salt flats, cook high above the sea in a mountain village with locals, and more. 

 

 

DAY 1    WELCOME TO SICILY!

We will meet you at Palermo Airport and transfer to our hotel, Badia Nuova, in the historic center of Trapani, for 3 nights.  Get settled in and enjoy aperitivo before we head to dinner to experience North Africa's influence on Sicilian food.
