Responsible tourism: Sicily 8 day holiday, eastern discovery
Rock dwellings, streets of Greek origin, the walls of medieval origins and beautiful Baroque buildings will be what you remember about the history of the Val di Noto. Enjoy cooking and tasting by local producers, as the best way to embrace elements that make Sicilian food and wine famous?
On our tours, we always prefer to work with local farmers, to keep the carbon footprint of these trips to a minimum, whilst also supporting traditional growing techniques that do less damage to the environment than modern farming. We also prefer to lead small groups of travellers with a maximum of 20 people, to ensure our impact on the local landscape and wildlife is limited. It also makes the trip more enjoyable, allowing you to experience Sicily, making its unique history and environment more accessible.
We do our best to apply the principles of responsible tourism, enshrined in the charter of the Association for Responsible Tourism in Italy. AITR's charter complies with the Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria.
This Sicilian trip covers everything: archeology, history, food and wine. This is a slow, enjoyable tour, focused on exploring this land in all its multifaceted characteristics, by breathing in the essences, feeling the elements and, above all, tasting the flavours. It is then that "travel" becomes a comprehensive experience... and Sicily provides the ideal place.
This trip is supported by local scholars filled with passion for their native land; they are young and professional with a friendly approach to our guests. For this reason, we prefer to lead small groups of travellers with a maximum of 20 people. During this trip, you will be pleased to meet the locals and enjoy the hospitality of the islanders.
Here in Eastern Sicily, you can watch the production of Olive Oil DOP of Monti Iblei; taste the chocolate from Modica (UNESCO Heritage City); the wine Nero d'Avola in the Val di Noto (other city that for its baroque beauty is listed in the Heritage Unesco World Heritage Site); meet tuna fishermen in Marzamemi, and prepare a caponata in Ragusa.
