You have visited all the major tourist attractions and now you are ready to experience some real and authentic Sicily?

 

Then this is the Tour for you.

By Old-Style Sicily we mean those little villages inland, where time has stopped and tourism is rare. But hospitality, be sure, is overwhelming.

Places where people still live the way we all used until not so many decades ago. Men still dedicated to their work on the fields, or with animals such as cows and sheeps. Women caring for home business, preparing the most delicious plates and delicacies.

Places where technology hasn’t overcome handcraft, and some of the most ancient jobs and arts are passed down from father to son. And this trip to Old-Style Sicily will show you some of them!

Amongst other things, You will see how ricotta cheese today is still made as it was in the past. Or the old craft of making puppies for Mangers, in places where they even make live cribs with live animals.

You could have the opportunity to have breakfast in farmers’ style, with hot ricotta and freshly baked bread. Having a glass of red wine, sided by some other typical products of sicilian tradition. Grilled peppers and sweet bread, or sandwiches with salami and provola cheese, You will surely have a full taste of sicilian life!

Randazzo

Randazzo (Sicilian: Rannazzu) is a town and comune in the Metropolitan City of Catania, Sicily, southern Italy. It is situated at the northern foot of Mount Etna, c. 70 kilometres (43 mi) northwest of Catania. It is the nearest town to the summit of Etna, and is one of the points from which the ascent may be made.

In the 13th century the town had its own army, which fought in favor of the king against the rebels. In 1210 King Frederick II of Hohenstaufen and his young wife Constance of Aragon sheltered at Randazzo to escape the terrible plague which raged in Palermo.

Randazzo became one of the most densely populated towns in the island, after Palermo and Messina. The town was also divided into three main districts: the Greeks lived in St. Nicola’s quarter, the Latins in St. Mary’s and the Lombards in St. Martin’s.
