Sicily Cooking Vacation: Best of the West

Explore the best of western Sicily on this amazing culinary tour of one of the world’s most renowned islands. Sicily has been beguiling travelers for millennia! As the largest island in the Mediterranean, Sicily has seen the rule and influence of many different cultures, including the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Vandals, Ostrogoths, Byzantines, French, and Spaniards – not to mention the Italians! In some ways Sicily is still more “Sicilian” than “Italian,” with its unique culture, cuisine, and language permeating its every shore.

This 6-night tour of western Sicily will include some of Europe’s most iconic sites, from the cathedral of Cefalù, to the Greek ruins of Agrigento, to the Roman villa of Piazza Armerina, all accompanied by an expert Sicilian guide and flavored with amazing Sicilian food and wine!
