8 DAYS IN AGRIGENTO & SICANIAN MOUNTAINS

8 DAYS IN AGRIGENTO & SICANIAN MOUNTAINS

Your amazing travel experience starts in Agrigento!

The adventures in this wonderful city start from its main streets, offering the ideal starting point for an intense week, packed full with new places and exciting people, but with room for relax, too. Your base will be a lovely relais with a unique, energizing mix of modernity and tradition. You will explore Agrigento, discover the Valley of the Temples, and have a ride on vintage 500 car! After that, you will leave the coast and move to the Sicanian Mountains, to Sant’Angelo Muxaro, a small village where time stands still. There, you will explore its lanes and meet Lorenzo, shepherd and sculptor, and Aldo the ‘plant whisperer’, who will enthrall you with their stories.

We choose your accommodation specifically thinking to your need: immersed in the centre of the Agrigento, where you could “breathe” the authentic air of Sicily! And near to everything you should need (from the most important sightseeing to the bakeries), 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 should need him/her! Just think him/her as a friend, a local who will let you discover Sicily through his/her own eyes, who will let you see what is hidden to the other travellers.
