Hidden treasures

There are places where time seems to have stopped at a certain moment in the past, thus enabling you to watch with the same eyes of those who found their home here thousands of years ago: a safe place, naturally defensible from enemies, rich in resources: the perfect place where to settle a village, grow up one's children and transform the 'need of surviving' into a form of art.

These sites are nowadays hidden and not well   known, only fragments of that glorious past have survived to the present age, but exploring them is an amazing and unforgettable experience.

Old villages

Everybody should  visit Sicily's old villages, located in dramatically  beautiful areas, out  of the touristy routes, where one can feel the most genuine soul of the island.

 There are unique small towns and villages which still preserve their ancient and incredibly breathtaking features: here we can find and admire men and women devoted to old  disappearing trades, and look for  special trattorias and food shops which offer a variety of local delicacies and the warm welcome of hospitable Sicilian people.
