Why Sicily?

"To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is not to have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything." Goethe said
This is the gateway between Europe and Africa, a meeting place for Mediterranean civilizations, a mysterious land of contrasts, a "place with many realities."

Nowhere in the world can one find comparable cultural wealth with such diversity of civilizations.

Sicily became the quintessence of Greek culture, Roman heritage, Byzantine art, Arab traditions, Norman architecture, French aesthetics, German Gothic, Spanish character, Neapolitan color - in such a small space and combined with the abundance of original Sicilian baroque.

Outstanding wines, Etna volcano, cascades of sculptures and fountains, charismatic Sicilians!

The cuisine of Sicily is a real explosion, a triumph of taste, easily impressive for ordinary travelers and sophisticated Michelin guide experts who regularly award local restaurants with treasured stars.

Are you ready to discover the Unexplored Sicily?

Natalia - Tour Leader

My Name is Natalia

6 years ago, our family bought an abandoned farm of the 18th century in Sicily, in the amazing place of Chiaramonte Gulfi, province Ragusa. For many generations Bishop Sebastian Rosso's family have been producing oil and wine here. To date, we have carried out a complete reconstruction of the old farm, resumed production of the excellent St. Margherita olive oil, opened B&B and launched Gastronomic tours. I will be happy to keep you company and share my secrets, as I was educated at the Wine School and attended specialized courses of olive oil tasters.

We invite you to discover the unexplored Sicily with us!
