Tour Overview Tour Overview

Also known as “green gold,” the pistachio is a member of the cashew family with Middle Eastern origins and is believed to be first imported to Sicily during the Arab rule. Today it is added to any food on the island - ice-cream, pasta, pastries. Pistachios grow on the fertile lava soil on the northern side of Mount Etna and the harvesting takes place every two years. Our Sicily food tour will start in the Bronte area, where you will visit a local farm to learn how they cultivate and process this golden product. Taste all the pistachio-based delicacies prepared for you following old family recipes.

Next you will stop in Randazzo where another family will welcome you to their farm to discover the secrets of their olive oil. You will hear about Nocellara Etnea – a native variety from Etna whose extra virgin oil is known for a very low level of acidity and digestive qualities. Other varieties include Brandofino with its distinctive Mediterranean scent, and Tonda Iblea - a quite fruity variety with a scent of grass and green tomato.

Your Sicily culinary tours will conclude with a lunch together and a chat about the unique products this amazing area has to offer.

Sicily tours can be customized to suit your requirements. Select between food & wine tours, biking on Mt Etna, snorkeling, Taormina sailing and many more! Additional transfers can be arranged so that you can reach the departure locations of each experience.
