Stirring-Postcard-CollageWednesday, September 20 to Wednesday, September 27, 2023
8 days, 7 nights
with an optional Eastern Sicily pre-tour package from Saturday, September 16 to Wednesday, September 20

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.

Join our Eastern Sicily prelude tour that starts on September 16!

“A beautiful and varied experience. Allison is full of knowledge and fun and helped bond our group into a family. She connected us with the best guides and chefs who shared their expertise with enthusiasm. We tasted and cooked traditional foods specific to this area and street foods. And we celebrated Sicily as friends. Grazie Allison!”
