About this tour
From cannoli to arancini, Sicilian food is known across the planet, but this tour shows how varied and diverse the cuisine here really is. The various civilisations that have occupied the island over millennia have not only left an unparalleled cultural heritage, but also a culinary history that sets Sicily apart from mainland Italy. Sample the fragrant street food of Palermo in vibrant markets, practise hands-on cooking with local chefs in Erice, sip the finest wines in Marsala and Etna and indulge in mouth-watering gelatos while relaxing in sun-kissed baroque piazzas. Let food lead the way in this captivating journey through culinary and cultural highlights.
