As we all live through something we had never imagined it could happen, let the dreams of travelling help the crossing of unprecedented times and situations.

We continue to stay in touch with our partners in Italy and we do hope that soon it will be time to fly over again, relax, explore, taste and enjoy the beauty of the "Bel Paese".

Bear with us while we try to organize and execute our tours in the old country.......


DECEMBER 29 2021- JAN 8 2022   EXPLORE SICILY.....

Our groups are between 4 and 8 people max, so that every customer feels pampered and well taken care of.

We choose resorts rather than hotels, mostly privately owned and historic residences. In Sicily as everywhere else we visit with our tailored, curated tours.

The tour is well planned and executed by a Chef/Architect who combines Art, Food and Passion for Italy and who makes sure guests experience life, places and food like the locals. Nothing on the tour will feel "touristy".

There are cooking  classes with  Michelin Star Chefs, a cooking class on the farm, a visit to a herb farm, a olive grove, a winery, a chocolate factory and a cheese making experience.

Being in one of the UNESCO Heritage sites of Europe there will also be visits to Churches, museums and castles as well as exploration of the Greek Ruins and Roman Mosaics in two cities in Sicily: Syracuse and Piazza Armerina. Not forgetting half day on the highest volcano in Europe, Mt Etna - and a afternoon of leisure and shopping in Taormina, the pearl of the Mediterranean.

Food will be the main focus of the trip and therefore lunches and dinners will be carefully planned for guests to enjoy the most of their experience in a land of abundance and simplicity. From bread, to pasta, to meats and fishes, not forgetting the wonderful desserts Sicily offers, most of the daily meals will be included in the price, except for a couple of times when you will be left free to choose what to do for lunch.

Land Transportation throughout the tour, entrance tickets,tour guide,tour escort,room,breakfast + 1 main meal (lunch or dinner), beverages at meals,cooking classes, all visits and experiences on the territory, farms, winery, olive oil makers , and more are all included in the price.
