LIVE Day 3: @experiencesicily Stirring Sicily East tour with @zest_lititz (of Lititz, Penn.) and Chef Nino Elia. There are many ways to travel. The first word is to have an open heart. The second, is to travel through a passion you possess. Today, during our cooking and wine tour, led by local mamma @alesmileandfood, we tasted local products in Ortigia's Mercato Antico, where we witnessed a typical Saturday. Afterwards, we entered a palazzo, where, in its kitchen, through a hands-on cooking experience, we made rice balls (arancini) and stuffed saber fish (involtini), and we learned the art of peeling a prickly pear (fichi d'india)--just like Alessia's grandma taught her. These seemingly normal activities are inspirational for us travelers, who are keen to experience Sicily through the eyes of Sicilians. #stirringsicily #cookinginsicily #sicilycooking #cookingtour #foodtravel #sicilyfoodtravel #zestchef #ortigia #siracusa #arancini #arancine #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily

Never stopping, today I fit in some horseback riding on Etna at @sicilyhorse.riding, which specializes in taking tourists through the forests and terraced vineyards of Etna (and on the beach too!). After an enlightening wine tasting on the slopes... and our journey through the bush, I thanked Maya, for letting me ride her today. It's been a very long time since I've ridden a horse (I used to ride a lot between the ages of 6 and 12 years old.)! It was fun to be back in the saddle again and see Etna from a different angle! #passeggiataconcavallo #cavallo #horsebackriding #horse #etna #etnahorsebackriding #moutnetna #sicilyhorse #sicilyhorsebackriding #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #sizilien #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily #smallgrouptoursitaly

I arrived in Sicily today, and it's super late here (Ah, jet lag ... but really, what's been keeping me awake is that I've been working most of the night!). I'm about to go to sleep, and yes, I'm sleeping in *this* castle! This is a magnificent castle hotel-resort that I'm investigating for your future trip to Sicily. So, yes, during your trip in Sicily, you can not only visit a castle, but you can sleep in one too! Oh, and tomorrow, I'm making sure the spa here is worthy for your future spa treatments! Meanwhile, stay tuned ... our Experience Sicily Stirring Sicily East tour starts on Thursday, and I'll be giving you the play by play. Until then, I'm going to sleep like a princess! #castellosanmarco #castle #castello #sicilycastle #castlehotel #castleinn #castlesicily #catania #calatabiano #dreamy #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #sizilien #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily

My partner in all things @experiencesicily, Evelina Buttitta, who took this photo yesterday, spent the weekend at this breathtaking spot, Tusa, on Sicily's north coast in Messina province, just west of Santo Stefano di Camastra. Not only is its sandy Lampare Beach recognized for the its environmental protection and sustainability programs, but the Hotel Atelier sul Mare, where Evelina and her husband stayed, is an outstanding contemporary art museum-hotel. Each room is a one-of-a-kind work of art. Its companion experience is the Fiumara d'Art, a dramatic sculpture garden housed in the Tusa riverbed. Evelina said for lovers of art, staying in Tusa is a must. We've had clients stay here in the past, but now that Evelina has experienced it for herself, we're bound to program it for our custom Sicily itineraries more often! We've been there, and that's why you want to experience Sicily with us! #tusa #messina #spiaggialampare #fiumaradarte #ateliersulmare #mare #sea #tramonto #sunset #beach #spiaggia #blueflag #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #traveltogether #authenticsicily

Here's looking at you, kid! Agrigento is host to a rare breed of goat called capra girgentana. Distinguished by their spiral, tall horns and long hair, this domesticated animal is valuable for its milk that possesses an equal amount of fat to protein. The name girgentana recalls the old Sicilian name of the city of Agrigento, Girgenti. During the mid-twentieth century, girgentana goats numbered more than 30,000 throughout southwestern Sicily. Today, there are fewer than 600, and there is a concerted effort to replenish the population that depleted once the introduction of UHT and pasteurized milk made breeding the goats uneconomical. #capra #capre #goat #goats #girgentana #slowfood #agrigento #horns #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily #smallgrouptoursitaly

When you cross over from western to eastern Sicily, you'll see some clear differences. One of the most significant is in the rice balls. Note these pictured. Some are round and the one on the top left is a cone shape, almost like a vulcano (hint, hint). Can you guess which might be from eastern Sicily? If you guessed the cone, then you are right! Yet, the shape isn't the only thing that makes these siblings different. They even have different names. Palermo style rice balls are called arancina/e (a feminized version of the word for orange, arancio). Catania style rice balls use the diminutive word for orange, arancino/i with little play on words. Needless to say, the naming convention is a heated debate between the regional cultures, so be aware of what you are eating, where, and its name! #arancini #arancine #streetfood #foodtravel #palermo #catania #riceballs #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily #smallgrouptoursitaly

Piazza della Repubblica, pictured, is the heart of the city of Mazara del Vallo in southwestern Sicily. Mazara del Vallo is considered the most important fishing port in Italy. Founded by the Phoenicians as a trading post, it was significant during the Arab era, when it was the capital of Val di Mazara, one of the three administrative divisions of Sicily. The cultural vibe of the city is decidedly north African--it has a large population of Tunisians and boasts an ancient Kasbah quarter, complete with a labyrinth of alleyways and courtyards, not far from the Piazza della Repubblica. Be sure to eat some seafood couscous while you are here and to see the magnificent Satiro Danzante, Dancing Satyr bronze statue. #mazaradelvallo #trapani #piazzadellarepubblica #piazza #italianpiazza #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily #smallgrouptoursitaly j

Let's Talk Cheese: Part 9. In the Valle del Belice in Trapani Province, Sicily, they produce a DOP (Denominazione d’Origine Protetta or Protected Designation of Origin) certified "pasta filata" (stretched/pulled) cheese called Vastedda della Valle del Belice. The name, vastedda, comes from the local Sicilian language--vasta means "gone bad." In other words, the cheese is made from pecorino cheese that didn't make the cut. It's a complex process, that goes something like this: The cheese maker takes the defective pecorino cheese, places it in wooden barrels and then adds hot sheep's milk with rennet in it (in Italian: caglio), filling the barrels and covering the pecorino curds with the hot liquid. He lets the concoction sit, heating the pecorino and therefore softening it. When he deems it the consistency he wants, the maker takes his cheese paddle and begins to break up the moisturized pecorino curds, this mixing results in a creamy, gooey product--think mozzarella, yet with sheep's milk cheese. The cheese maker, using his paddle, allows the cheese to become like putty--he pulls it and pushes it. If you've seen mozzarella being made, it's a very similar process. Once the mixture becomes a stretchy, white goo, the maker pulls smaller pieces, shaping them with his hands, and then places them in bowls, forming the shape of the soft, smooth cheese. Like its distant cousin, mozzarella, it has a soft consistency and must be eaten fresh, within three days of production. Pictured is Salvatore Cucchiara, pulling the cheese; the cheese placed in the bowls to form; and the packed cheese. Pair it with fresh tomatoes, olive oil, and oregano, and you're complete! #vastedda #cheese #formaggio #pecore #pecorino #salemi #trapani #valledelbelice #caseificio #sheepsmilk #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia  #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily #smallgrouptoursitaly

Sicily hosts the largest, most active volcano in Europe, Etna, aka, Mount Etna. Today, she woke from her nap to spew! The Silvestri Craters, one of which is pictured, were formed on Etna's south slope during the eruption of 1892. Accessable from Rifugio Sapienza in Nicolosi, they are 6233 feet above sea level. You can walk along the rims of the two craters because they are extinct. #etna #mountetna #silvestricraters #rifugiosapienza #catania #vulcano #excursion #volcano #crater #lava #nicolosi #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #sizilien #italy #italia #italien #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #traveltogether #authenticsicily

Meet Chef Nino Elia and his new friend from Caruso Bar-Pasticceria in Sambuca di Sicilia. They are holding cucuzza, a type of squash that is in season now. Now, these cucuzza are particular because the Caruso family cultivates them specifically to make the sweet paste that they use in their pastries, specifically the Minni di Virgini (Breasts of the Virgin)--a breast-shaped delight that you can learn more about at https://experiencesicily.com/2016/06/06/sambuca-di-sicilias-virgins-breasts/. Nino and I are preparing for Stirring Sicily East, a hands-on cooking and wine experience in September. It's sold out this year. We'll be announcing details for Stirring Sicily West in September 2019.

Did you know that figs are like flowers, and they open up and "bloom" when the conditions are just right? Here's a look. It's fig season right now, and if you are lucky enough to be in Sicily over the next month, you can pick the figs right off the trees, clean them, and eat them.

Those limestone blocks were intended for the base of columns of one of the temples of the ancient Greek city, now an outstanding archaeological park. We'll be spending the day at Selinunte (Complete with picnic lunch and private tour...

I wish I could say I took this photo from Pantelleria, the largest of Sicily's off-shore islands, but alas, I have yet to go there! Thanks to my friend Alessandra B., who is vacationing this week on the wind-swept "Black Pearl of the Mediterranean," for sending this image and more to me. Note the dammuso, or cube-shaped cottage with the white, domed roof. The island is known for these structures, which are of North African origin.

Treasures can be found in every town in Sicily. In Termini Imerese, on Sicily's north coast between Palermo and Cefalù, there are a number of fascinating relics of its extensive history. The one that has sparked my curiosity the most is the 14th-century Chiesa di Santa Caterina, which has 15th-century frescoes depicting the life of Caterina. It also features portraits of other saints such as Mary Magdalene, pictured here, which are probably the work of local artists Nicolò and Giacomo Graffeo. #terminiimerese #palermo #marymagdalene #magdalene #saint #santa #fresco #art #arte #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #sizilien #italy #italia #italien #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily

Parrocchia San Sebastiano in Palazzolo Acreide, Sicily. Palazzolo Acreide is one of the towns that make up the UNESCO site of the Late Baroque Towns of the Val di Noto. The town was rebuilt after the earthquake of 1693 that flattened much of the region of southeastern Sicily. #palazzolo #palazzoloacreide #sansebastiano #chiesa #baroque #barocco #unesco #valdinoto #church #duomo #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #sizilien #italy #italia  #sicilytourism #sicilytravel #sicily_tourism  #smallgrouptours #authenticsicily #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily

Ferragosto is upon us! And that means throughout Sicily (and Italy) there are feasts, music festivals, and gatherings of all sorts, like Ypsigrock (pictured) that took place over the weekend in Castelbuono, Palermo province. My cousin Filippo attended, and he sent me this photo of one of my musician heros, Alfio Antico, who performed on Saturday night in the town's castle. Ferragosto is the more common name for the Catholic Feast of the Assumption. August 15 is the actual holiday; however, most Italians take the day off as the centerpiece of a longer vacation, returning to their hometowns in Sicily and the south from northern Italy and abroad. #alfioantico #ypsigrock #castelbuono #palermo #ferragosto #livemusic #musicfestival #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #instasicilia #igerssicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily #smallgrouptoursitaly

Make a wish and dance under the stars! August 10th is the Feast of San Lorenzo--or as Italians know it, "the night of the shooting stars," when the Perseids, a meteor shower, has its most vibrant activity. If the sky is clear, look for a shooting star and make a wish. Then dance the evening away with your friends, like this beautiful satyr, which can be viewed in Mazara del Vallo, Sicily. He is a bronze statue that is thought to be from between the sixth and second century BC. Found by fishermen (at least the foot until archaeologists uncovered the rest) deep below the sea between Africa and the island of Pantelleria, it was excavated over two years from 1997-1998. Scholars believe it to be a dancing Bacchante in ecstasy. My wish is to return to Sicily soon to see this beautiful sculpture in person again! Oh, wait, I was supposed to keep my wish a secret! #sanlorenzo #dancingsatyr #mazaradelvallo #trapani #bronze #statua #statue #sculpture #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #sizilien #italy #italia #italien #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #instasicilia #igerssicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily #smallgrouptoursitaly
