Sicily is our home, it’s were everything started, the combination of the four elements: from the fire of the Etna Volcano to the magic touch of the Mediterranean sea!
A mix of ancient traditions, coming from Greece, Spain, Normandy and Arabic cultures, all blending in and influencing the food, wine, architecture, archeology and people of Sicily! NicheItaly puts a special attention in selecting the best hotels, from historic landmark buildings in the main towns to the luxury countryside boutique hotels.
You will be mesmerized by the zest of authentic local restaurants, by the great seafood offering, sitting right on the beach and picking up the fresh catch of the day.
We will visit majestic cities like Palermo as well as locations rich in Greek history, culture, amphitheaters, architecture, including the birthplace of mathematician and engineer Archimedes. But also enjoy strolling into lively markets, golden tiled churches, exploring the real popular food traditions and even getting to seat at the table with a real duchess! Amazing stops include Maria Grammatico, the iconic old pastry lady revered to be the most authentic Sicilian pastry master! Every NicheItaly tour includes delectable food, incredible wine and great company from our friendly and knowledgeable hosts.
