- Go off the beaten track with a guided tour of small-town Sicily
- Discover the art of hand-making pasta with a cooking demonstration
- Enjoy a home-cooked meal and drinks with a local family
The Forgotten Sicily excursion is designed to show you a side to Sicily that tourists don’t usually see. Leaving the cities behind, you’ll head to the hills around stunning Taormina to explore small-town Sicily, with a local guide helping you to unearth the small communities and fascinating Norman ruins half-hidden in the spectacular Agro Valley.
Next, you’ll experience authentic Sicilian cuisine – a true local passion – at U Lantimaru (literally, ‘the lantern maker’). Here, a Sicilian family will welcome you warmly into their home, and you’ll be shown the art of hand-making pasta, as well as Sicilian staples like arancini and panelle.
Finally, Ms. Eleanora will prepare a home-cooked meal that’s as authentic as they come, sharing her culinary secrets and snippets about life in small-town Sicily over drinks and traditional Sicilian folk music – even dancing, if you’re inclined!
