A different trip to Sicily ~ no museums, no ruins...live like a local

Jump to last reply

I will be bringing my 3 daughters and my husband to Sicily. We did Italy/Sicily in 2011. This time we want to visit it in a different way. We are "churched out." We went to many museums, ruins, etc...this time we want to visit olive groves, pick olives, figs, whatever is in season. Go to olive oil places...take a cooking class...shop little towns..walk beaches. Eat at wonderful local places. Stay in the little towns that are inviting.

We have family in Polizzi Generosa. We will spend 3 nights there. I love that location! I want to picnic in the mill area where my grandfather worked. (The mill is gone). WE will have a car. I am guessing that since we are going to Polizzi we should limit our trip to the Eastern side of Sicily. I am a bit worried that it will be too touristy. I hear Cefalu is a nice place. We drove through it and swam in the ocean in March. The beach was dead. We did not see the sites of Cefalu...this time we will.

I hear Taormina is beautiful but is it major touristy?

I need some hidden treasures. I read about Giardini Naxos and Ortigia. I read that the ceramic place isn't a necessary visit...

I want a little italian lady to teach us some local dish to make...we are not looking for fancy accommodations...just clean and sufficient for a family of 5. We will have a car but love to explore on foot. We have 3 girls so shopping is a must. We are all foodies!

We will also visit Palermo as we have many relatives there too....we are staying a bit quiet about that as they want to see us every part of every day. tee her

Mondello was the perfect spot for us...if you have been to Mondello area you will know what we like. Little villages with local cuisine is just what we are looking for.

If you haven't been to Polizzi...try it out...it's in the clouds and just heavenly!
