Sicily Cooking Vacations
Join us for an Italian cooking vacation to entrancing Sicily, an exotic location that has beckoned travelers for centuries. A repository of every great Mediterranean civilization, Sicily still bears the cultural and gastronomic influences and the archeological remains of the many peoples who have ruled it. From Palermo to Taormina, Sicily lives on as a land of deep blue skies, temperate climate, lush vegetation and abundant marine life. The cuisine of Sicily—from cannoli to cous cous—is as complex as its history and pairs beautifully with the island’s world-famous wines. Your culinary tour will treat you to hands-on cooking classes, gourmet meals, wine tastings, and guided excursions, giving you an insider’s perspective to this mysterious island.
