Phillis Carey and Diane Phillips
are set to take you on the trip of a lifetime 
to Sicily in April 2019
On this fully escorted tour with Diane and Phillis, you will experience the beauty, diversity, culture, food and wines of Sicily.

"Flavors of Sicily"  --  April 5 to 15, 2019

Exploring the island from West to East, this custom group
will spend two nights in each
- Palermo, Menfi, Ragusa, Siracusa and Taormina -
while providing the opportunity to experience the Sicilian culture,
to sample the local food & wines
and to learn about the many layers of history left behind by
the Greeks, the Romans and the Arabs.

These are all pictures we took on our trip last year!  This is a magical place and very unlike the rest of Italy I've visited.  I felt an amazing connection to the past here--maybe it's because my great-grandfather was born here.  The main cities are very cosmopolitan but on a smaller scale and the small towns are charming. The food is wonderful, the people are friendly and you will feel very taken care of throughout your time in Sicily!

There will be food in restaurants as well as some we make ourselves! 
Wait until you try the Meat Filled Arancini in Palermo or how about the Brioche and Gelato Ice Cream Sandwich.

The Chocolate of Modica is like nothing you have tasted before. We'll learn how to make it and then taste many traditional treats made with this famous delicacy!

Besides learning about the food and wine of Sicily we will do plenty of sight-seeing along the way.

                                                  We'll walk right out on the
Salt Pans of Marsala and learn how the
salt has been harvested for centuries!

Ah, Ortygia--it's a charming old town, really an island, with a fabulous market. We'll see an abundance of fresh fish and vegetables, so perfectly ripe. The tomatoes in Sicily are the best ever. I bought a couple of pounds of salt-packed capers there last year and have just finally used them up!  
I guess it's time to go back. 

Greek Temples you can walk right up
to and touch!
