Sicily Itinerary 2025

2025 Trip


Sicily is a treasure trove of perfect seafood, intensely flavored vegetables, outstanding olive oil, and world-class wines.  Its cuisine is different from any other Italian region.  Strongly influenced by its many conquerors—from the Greeks, to the Romans, the Arabs, the French and the Spanish—the island’s food represents a unique crossroads of the Mediterranean.  Expect hints of exotic spices like saffron and cinnamon paired with local ingredients—lemons, blood oranges, almonds, fresh capers, and wild mountain oregano. All of these, plus stunning island geography and a breathtaking tapestry of art and architecture that includes two of the best-preserved Greek temples in the world. This tour has been strategically timed to coincide with the wine harvest.  Prepare yourself for new varietals that only grow in Sicily.   Furthermore, grapes are grown in mineral-rich volcanic soil which impart interesting complexities.   Simply put, Sicily’s wines are stunning. Since Sicily is Italy’s southernmost province and warmer than the mainland, early autumn is idyllic weather…still warm but not the oppressive heat of summer and without the hordes of summer-time tourists.
