A real Sicilian adventure beckons. This glorious region is rich in both history and gastronomy, and we take six days to immerse ourselves in it all. An expert guide brings stories of the past vividly back to life as our senses are treated to delicious local cuisine.

Experience the incredible archaeological sites to be found on this beautiful island, from atmospheric catacombs to a necropolis, and uncover the tales they harbour. Take part in a traditional cookery class, where the secrets of local dishes are revealed, and sit down to meals that showcase the flavours of the Mediterranean.
