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.
Archaeology & Farm Experience –
Traditional Bread making at Noto countryside
A complete experience of archaeology, farm and authentic food. The Angelico family will welcome you at their farm and show you the preparation of bread in the antique woodfire oven. You will have a traditional farm lunch with local products while sharing a family atmosphere around the table.
Concetta, the youngest of Angelico family, will offer you an archeological tour of the farm and explanation of her family history. Her family has lived on the farm for many generations. You will visit antique tombs, Byzantine burial caves, you will cross the river through centuries-old holm oaks until you arrive at the old hamlet where her parents still live. You will learn about the traditional wheat production processes and will start preparing the bread. Mix flour, water and sourdough; knead the dough until soft and smooth and leave it to rise for 2 hours. The bread will be cooked in the antique brick oven and eaten during the lunch in the traditional way: still hot seasoned with extra virgin olive oil, oregano and dried chilli pepper.
