Flowers of a Sicilian Spring
The Madonie Mountains Natural Park, member of the UNESCO’s European and Global Geoparks network, is one of the most charming and authentic areas among the several rural regions of Sicily. With this itinerary, based on a fascinating historical mansion, now converted into an “agriturismo”, in the beautiful landscape of Polizzi Generosa, we want to offer to our guests the opportunity to get in touch with a real Sicily which is slowly disappearing. You will experience the culture and the local traditions, learn more about the mafia and the controversial history of present Sicily, visit beautiful medieval towns and some of the most amazing mountains of our island with their fantastic views of sea and countryside and enjoy all the local culinary delicacies including the old fashioned bread and pizza that all together we will prepare in a traditional old oven. The colourful flowers of our spring will be framing those days in the countryside.
Cefalu with its Norman cathedral is the real meeting point between the mountains and the coast.
After this rural life immersion, in two intense days you will experience the beautiful and bustling city of Palermo with its 3.000 years old history, its markets and night life, its monuments, bars, shops etc. The regional capital of Sicily is always full of surprises.
