Sicilian puppets and wines in Palermo
Listed in 2001 by the UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, the Sicilian puppet theatre known as the Opera dei Pupi emerged in Sicily at the beginning of the nineteenth century. In the last ten years, it is enjoying of a great period of renaissance and Palermo is the place to see the best theatres and puppeteers.
Our half day together will include a full show in one of the most traditional puppet theatres in the city, followed by a conversation with the master puppeteers who will explain history and techniques of the Sicilian puppets.
Then we will move to the famous Enoteca Picone, listed among the ten best wine bars in Italy by the Gambero Rosso guide, where our guests will discover, through an informal wine tasting and light dinner, the different DOCs areas of the Sicilian wine.

Cooking with us
We are not professional chefs and therefore we do not have the ambition to offer you professional cooking classes. But we love our Sicilian food, we enjoy very much buying fresh ingredients directly from markets and little putie (Sicilian word for small old fashion food shops, butchers, grocers etc.) choosing always what our generous land and sea offer in the four seasons. If you join our tours or cooking days you will discover how Sicilians like spending their time in a kitchen cooking, creating, chatting and sipping slowly a glass of white or red nectar of our grapes.
