To the roots
5-12 June 2021
Be one of the six Digging Deep Voyagers who will have the unique opportunity to explore Sicily through A Sicilian Journey, at a very special reduced price for a one and only experience.
Connect with locals discovering Sicilian traditions, with the craftsmen in their workshops, making your own piece of ceramic, attending the Teatro dei Pupi show and visiting the workshop where the marionettes are crafted.
Explore the nature and feel overwhelmed by the dramatic landscape of the Etna volcano or by the luxuriant Cava Carosello natural reserve where you can have a swim in one of the deep freshwater plunge pools.
Imagine the scent of wild herbs and inebriating orange blossom, while indulging in a delicious meal served at a farmer’s table or prepared by you at a special hands-on cooking class. Make Ricotta cheese in the traditional way with a local shepherd and rejoice in a tasting of splendid wines on the slopes of Etna.
Receive your Emotional Sicily Welcome Pack and a personalised digital photobook which we will carefully prepare for you.

REQUEST INFO AND QUOTE
Visit the town of Sambuca and get to know the territory of La Strada del Vino delle Terre Sicane (the Way of the Wine, of the Sicani lands), with its head office in the beautiful building of Palazzo Panitteri. The Iter Vitis International Federation of the Cultural Route of the Council of Europe traces the wine culture of Sicily.
There will be a short hike to discover the “Palmento Rupestre della Risinata”- one of the many and perhaps the most complex of ancient wine millstones to be found around Sicily. Carved out of the stone, they were used for the pressing of grapes and winemaking since the 8th Century BC, and date back to the Bronze Age in the Western Mediterranean.
Reach the splendid Estate dating back to the 1500’s, which looks over Lake Arancio and which will be the setting for wine tasting and a lunch with estate wines to compliment the dishes.
