Day 2: Hiking in the “Quisquina.”
Drive towards Monte Quisquina (1183 m asl), from where you have a wide view of most of Sicily. Hike of 2 hours - 2½ hours (about 5 km) is not particularly difficult, crossing the Quercia Grande (old oak of about 600-700 years). Out of the forest, you reach the hermitage of Santa Rosalia in Quisquina, a hermitage with its church. Here you can see the cells of the hermit monks, the crypt and the cave where the saint spent most of her life. You continue to a typical farm, where you will take part in the preparation of the "ricotta" and where the production of local cheese specialties and typical dishes (boiled sheep meat, fried artichokes or lamb, etc.) are prepared. Return to the agriturismo. Dinner and overnight.
Day 3: Between history and culinary traditions
After breakfast, drive to Cammarata and San Giovanni Gemini. Walking through the narrow streets of the old town of Cammarata, you can get to know some routes that are part of the famous "Magna via Francigena".
Afterwards you will reach a typical trattoria for an enjoyable experience. In a nice location you will prepare our excellent local products together with the chef. Fun is guaranteed, and even the little ones can put their hands in and enjoy our good cuisine. Depending on the day, you can buy the ingredients together with the cook at the local market. Afternoon free time in the center of San Giovanni Gemini, for shopping or to enjoy a good aperitif. Dinner and overnight.
