Lena’s Sicilian Ancestral Town Visit

Today we have clients visiting the Late Baroque Sicilian Town of Palazzolo Acreide for a heritage experience. They’ll start their day here, at the Municipal Hall’s office of vital records with their local, expert English-speaking guide. Lena and her children John and Carole, will visit la Chiesa di San Sebastiano where Lena’s parents married before emigrating to the United States in 1920. They’ll visit the cemetery to locate the graves of Lena’s grandparents. And, if all goes as we planned, they’ll meet Lena’s living cousins who live in Palazzolo Acreide. Yesterday, they spent the afternoon at a farm on the outskirts of town having a hands-on cooking experience with a local family featuring typical recipes.

Today, more historic and cultural experiences are in store. I can’t wait to hear all about it later!
