Southern Secrets


Southern Secrets: Campania & Sicily's hidden corners

Go off the beaten path and taste the best of Southern Italy and Sicily. Our Southern Secrets: Campania and Sicily’s Hidden Corners tour will take you beyond the ordinary. Highlights include the Greek temples of Paestum, touring the vines and savoring the wines of the Irpinia wine region, exploring the ancient Phoenician outpost of Mozia, and eating “archeo-cuisine” in the shadow of the Greek-Roman Valley of the Temples at Agrigento.

We’ll be mesmerized by the food markets in Palermo, learn to cook regional dishes from a Baronessa at her buffalo farm in countryside of Cilento, and relish freshly-made couscous while gazing at the splendid Trapani Salt Flats.

Hosted by Danielle Oteri of Feast on History and Allison Scola of Experience Sicily, during Southern Secrets: Campania and Sicily’s Hidden Corners, you will be delighted by personalized service, insider knowledge, and uncommon excursions. Refresh your spirit with this stimulating adventure through Southern Italy and Sicily!
