Avventura di vela classica ad Ortigia
We will cruise the waters of Siracusa enjoying the sights of Ortigia on board of my Tahiti Ketch, a 30 feet classic sailboat designed in U.S.A. in 1922. According to the weather conditions we will lead to the Marine Protected Area of Plemmirio where we will stop for swimming, sorrounded by nature. We sometime meet dolphins and other sea creatures in this area. While we will be sailing I would like you to help me trying your hand at ruddering Fiesta and trimming the sails with me, as part of the crew. Then we will celebrate the sunset with a nice aperitif in the bay, having a delicious tasting of food and wines made by local farmers and producers. That is the best way to enjoy our sunset. Be aware the route might be changed according to the weather conditions. Other things to note This experience is for everyone and it is an easy way to relax and, at the same time, live the sea for a day. This is also an environmentally friendly sea experience.

Sicily on a table
Cooking is my passion! The love that I have for Cooking was handed down by my parents, renowned restaurateurs in Siracusa, and by both of my grandmothers, one of them being apulian and the other one, sicilian. I have always organized meals for my relatives and friends, creating a warm and informal atmosphere, as the one you can find at home. I make dishes that are typical in the Sicilian' Cooking such as the caponata, the arancini and the impanate. I also make recipes that come from Puglia, as for example the cuculi and the focaccine ripiene e fritte; always respecting the tradition and the authenticity of each meal. I love simple but strong flavors and my knowledge of local herbs makes our dishes unique, satisfying even the needs of those who are vegetarians or intolerant.
Typical Sicilian Cooking Class
Fresh pasta is one of the most beloved specialties of Italian cuisine, a real family tradition. It means typical Sunday lunches, with the grandmother preparing it with their children and grandchildren. A real moment of joy and conviviality! Would you like to learn how to make fresh pasta for friends and family? This is the class for you! The class takes place at a real Italian's home, and with the help of this local chef you'll learn how to make dough, puff, and make a typical fresh regional pasta. At the end of the class, you'll taste the fresh pasta you made at lunch or dinner while sipping some great local wine. As with all the real Italian houses, the bis will not be missed!
Il canyon di Cava Grande passeggiata rilassante nella natura
We are going to visit, walk and enyiong, Cava Grande canyon, with the chance, if you are up to, of swimming in Cassibile River. We are going to access the canyon, walking by an old concealed mule path, used by shepards in the past time to get to the bottom of the gorge, or using some secondary trails taking into the canyon We are going to do it respecting the "path" itself, the environment around us, and the natural places we are visiting, trying to have the less impact possible, caused by our presence. I invite you to practice the “zen karma circle” and possibly to take away any little rubbish when we can. My choice to make guide only few people. Not because this tour is fancy, posh, luxury or exclusive, but simple because I care to be in the nature, trying to be less intrusive as possible. We will walk and chill out and share good stories, and celebrate nature. The trip by car to get to our location will last around 30/50 minutes from Siracusa. The walk is easy and undemanding. The time to come back to town can vary and it's only indicative.
