An Authentic Sicily


Trip Summary

*NEW ITINERARY FOR 2019!

Delectable Destinations is proud to offer this exceptional tour of Sicily in partnership with Laurie Howell, the Italy expert at Amalfi Life.  Together we have created a not-to-be-missed journey into the food, wine and culture of this remarkable island.

Sicily is a tapestry of culture and cuisine unlike anywhere in the Mediterranean. This island-in-the-sun has been an attractive piece of real estate for every major power in the region over the course of 2500 years –  from the ancient Greeks to the Spaniards, with the Romans, Byzantines, and Arabs in between. As a result we as eager travelers can enjoy a tantalizing feast of gastronomy and local traditions.

Our mission on this trip is to bring you an authentic Sicily. 

Beginning in the hinterlands of greater Agrigento and ending on the panoramic slopes of Mt. Etna, this weeklong adventure  will follow a handpicked route of experiences, visiting…

  • Local families and their artisanal products
  • Trailblazing wineries
  • Baroque towns of Scicli, Modica and Ragusa
  • Archeological wonders
  • An ancient garden paradise
  • and some young shepherds pursuing an ancient livelihood

We will cook with almonds, taste a multitude of cheeses, herbs, and olives, dine in private homes and charming trattorias, and finish on a high note (pardon the pun) with an exciting Jeep tour of Etna’s Regional Parks.    

Soak in the appeal of the Sicilian people and enjoy a true taste of the island at every turn on this special trip.

Sicily is a tapestry of culture and cuisine unlike anywhere in the Mediterranean. This island-in-the-sun intrigues and delights at every turn.
