Stirring-Postcard-CollageWednesday, September 20 to Wednesday, September 27, 2023

8 days, 7 nights

Delight in hands-on cooking classes, wine tastings of Sicily’s outstanding vintages, and interaction with locals. You’ll learn time-tested recipes of traditional Sicilian dishes while relishing the beauty and enchantment of central and western Sicily’s UNESCO sites and hidden communities. We’ll savor moments in Palermo’s vibrant markets, among the trees at an organic olive farm, with singing sheep at a family-run dairy (mmm… fresh ricotta!), and by getting our hands in the dough with home-schooled mammas and trained chefs. Co-hosted by chef Antonino Elia of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, you’ll be entertained while having the peace of mind that we’ve taken care of all the details.

“We have been blessed with several opportunities to travel much of Italy and Sicily over the past years. This latest experience in Sicily took us deeper into the Sicilian culture, history, people and food then we have ever experienced. Everyone that we came in contact with was incredibly kind and informative about the areas they were either explaining or, showing us. Many thanks to Allison and Nino for a great trip. I can’t wait to start planning our next trip with Experience Sicily.”

“Our accommodations were pleasant and therefore a significant factor making the home base before and after our busy days. The fact that we had Chef Nino and Chef Giuseppe traveling with us was an authentic reminder we were experiencing food as well as the beautiful landscape. We really did Stir and taste Sicily. Our group was especially interested and interesting. We became family, keeping the spirit up daily!
