The Wonders of Sicily


Trip Summary

Delectable Destinations is proud to offer this exceptional tour of Sicily in partnership with our fellow small-group travel expert, Laurie Howell of Amalfi Life. Together we have created a not-to-be-missed journey into the culinary and cultural heart of this remarkable region of Italy.

Sicily is a tapestry of culture and cuisine unlike anywhere in the Mediterranean. This island-in-the-sun intrigues and delights at every turn. It has an abundance of riches and a tantalizing feast of experiences that are best enjoyed by visiting a sampling of its different regions. We’ve handpicked the most memorable of them for you and created this exciting itinerary to showcase some of the island’s innumerable wonders.

Inspire your senses with tastes and aromas influenced by Sicily’s past rulers from around the Mediterranean. Visit family-run wineries and olive oil estates. Enjoy touring a unique farm of native herbs and spices, and marvel at the array of earth’s bounty at world famous open-air markets. You may find yourself transfixed as you watch the landscape shift from rolling hills to dramatic coastlines and finally to the undulating black slopes of Mount Etna.

Wander through ancient Greek and Roman ruins, jewel-like villages, and lively city centers vibrant with local life.

Soak in the appeal of the Sicilian people, with their strong sense of identity and love for their homeland.

Sicilian gastronomy is infused with love and history and we will enjoy a true taste of the island during our week long journey. The secrets of Sicilian cooking are revealed to you along the way, beginning with a fascinating cooking class in the town of Trapani, the center of the island’s Middle Eastern influenced cuisine.

Your accommodations include serenely situated wine resorts with vistas melding earth and sky, and a boutique hotel in the heart of Ortigia, one of the most charming and walkable locales in all of Sicily.
