8 DAYS IN AGRIGENTO AND SICANIAN MOUNTAINS

8 DAYS IN AGRIGENTO AND SICANIAN MOUNTAINS

Agrigento is the place where the glory of nature meets history: immersed in a wonderful valley and surrounded by the lovely countryside, it’s been visited for centuries by now. And you will realized why day by day, we can assure you.

Dive into history with a quiet walk which focuses on the city’s ancient roots, as well as on its delicious street food. Enjoy the typical dishes and learn how to cook them yourself, to take home a unique souvenir. Explore the city and its surroundings with your Local Jack at a slow pace to get deep inside Sicilian life and get to know the locals. This trip is meant for you to experience Sicily, rather than just seeing it. When you will move to Sicanian Mountains, in the small village of Sant’Angelo Muxaro, meeting shepherds and dairymen and listening to their stories will impress definitely these places on you. Catch a glimpse of everyday life in a city suspended in time.

We choose all your accommodations specifically thinking to your need: immersed in the natural environment, where you could relax and take your time. And near to everything you should need (from the bakeries to the pharmacies), to let enjoy your Travel Experience at its best. And remember: the Local Jack (your guide during the entire holiday), will be there for you every time you need him/her! More than a friend, the Local Jack will be there for you every time you should have any request or any doubt: just ask and he/she will help you living the best experience ever in Sicily!

FROM AGRIGENTO TO SICANIAN MOUNTAINS
Take it easy and enjoy your free time

Relaxing means taking your time to simply hang around, as well. That’s why we’ve included some free time in this program, but your Local Jack is always there to help and provide you with tips on where to eat or on folk festivals to take part in.

Overnight stay area: Sant’Angelo Muxaro

day 6

On the last 2 days you’re hosted in an agriturismo in the very heart of Sicily, in Sant’Angelo Muxaro, on the Sicanian mountains. On the first day you meet Aldo, a man who’s devoted his entire life to growing any kind of Sicilian plants, from which he extracts oils and other matters for massage, for example. He introduces you to a lesser known side of Sicily: the life of those who work here. Once again, you can relish a unique gourmet experience with the food he produces in his own house: slices of bread made with an ancient Sicilian grain, sprinkled with his own olive oil and covered with flowers, bio almonds, pistachios and herbs. Taste Sicily as only few have done before.
