Discover Western Sicily

Is there anything better than visiting a local? We say “Nope!” On this special journey we are going to meet many Sicilians who will share their passion and love for their homeland! In addition to introducing travelers to the known gems of western Sicily, such as the capital Palermo and the Greek temples in Agrigento, this departure centers on what we see as the most vibrant and diverse cross-section of colors, places, flavors and people in this part of the heart of the Mediterranean.
