Food

  • All breakfasts and a wine tasting on Mt Etna included.Sicilian cuisine is a melting pot of all the different cultures that existed on the island, from the Arabs to the Normans. The island itself is incredibly fertile, enjoying a perfect climate which is ideal for the cultivation of fresh produce such as olives, oranges, lemons, eggplants, tomatoes, pistachios, almonds, grapes, and more- not to mention all of the seafood, tuna and swordfish fished off the coast. The result? A cuisine that is fresh, varied, and absolutely delicious! Sicilian wines are also superb and known to be strong and syrupy, like Marsala and Moscato. During the trip the leader will always be on hand to recommend the best restaurants and cafes for meals. In the evening she/he will often be organising optional group dinners but participation is entirely optional.
