Palermo – Monreale – Trapani – Marsala
You will complete your visit to Sicily with a trip to the island’s west coast, travelling out of Palermo to Trapani and the incredible salt flats. These salt flats have been farmed for centuries, producing the finest sea salt for cooking and (in the old days) preserving food. The landscape is hauntingly beautiful.
Then, it’s on to Marsala, where the traditional sweet Sicilian wine is harvested and fermented in oak barrels for years. You will enjoy a visit to a cantina where you can try a selection of Marsala wines, served with delicious Sicilian snacks.
Then, you will head back into Palermo via the Cathedral and monastic complex of Monreale, a huge religious building, highly decorated with carvings and mosaics.
This evening, you will enjoy a Farewell Dinner in a super chic and trendy bistro where modern and traditional dishes are served in a vibrant atmosphere. The sommelier will take you on a journey through some of the many wonderful wines of Sicily. A fitting end to an amazing Sicily experience.
