Don't miss our Slow Food Tour of Sicily: discover Agrigento’s Valley of the Temples, dine with us and visit the Morgante Winery in Val di Mazara for a wine tasting.
Arrive in Palermo and transfer to the famous historical Greek city of Agrigento in Sicily. We will check in for 2 nights at the Baglio della Luna 4 star Hotel in Agrigento. You will have free time to explore the wonderful streets of Via Atena in the old quarter of the city where several streets sell locally made produce. Head over for a visit to the Santo Spirito Monastery, where the nuns make and sell typical pastries of Agrigento. Explore the thousand year old Chiesa di Santa Maria dei Gracia, an old Norman church or climb up the Agrigento Cathedral for an amazing view of the valley below.
In the evening you will be treated to a traditional dinner at one of the Slow Food restaurants, Locanda di Terra after which we will head back to the hotel.
We will start our day with a fully guided tour of the spectacular “Valley of the Temples” Archaeological Park, which stands as a testimony to the ancient Greek civilization in Sicily. Here we will visit the oldest 6th century Temple of Hercules, the impressively large Temple of Concord and Temple of Juno that stands above on a cliff.
Later in the afternoon, we will depart for Grotte. This is a charming little agricultural hamlet in the Agrigento hinterland which has a surprising history of feudal families. After our tour we will proceed to the suburb of Recalamare to visit the Morgante Winery that is situated on top of a hill in the beautiful countryside of the Val di Mazzara. In this calm and beautiful winery, we will walk around and partake in their guided tasting of wines, Presidia products and other selected delicacies of Sicily. At the end of the tour we will return back to the hotel.
On our third morning in Agrigento, we will enjoy our last buffet breakfast together at the Baglio della Luna Hotel and then proceed to checkout.
