People-to-People Experiences: Follow OAT no their Sicily’s Ancient Landscapes & Timeless Traditions tour to see what’s in the typical cucina Siciliana (Sicilian kitchen) when you sit down with a smaller group of travelers for a Home-Hosted Lunch with a Sicilian family in Mazara del Vallo.

O.A.T. Exclusives: Spend A Day in the Life of Castelbuono, a hilltop village crowned with a medieval castle. Here, we’ll meet a group of hardworking local donkeys and learn about the town’s innovative solution to waste disposal. We’ll also tour the castle, visit with locals in Castelbuono’s charming piazza, and sit down to a traditional Sicilian meal with members of the community to learn about what life is like in this small town. Plus, explore Modica like the locals do as we zip through its narrow streets in vintage Fiat 500s. We’ll also discuss the Controversial Topic of the local Sicilian Mafia, also known as Cosa Nostra, during a conversation with someone who is knowledgeable about the organization.

Freedom to Personalize Your Experience: Join the 44% of travelers who extend their time abroad. Add a pre-trip extension to Puglia: Italy’s Undiscovered Heel, post-trip extension to Calabria: Southern Italy’s Hidden Heartland or Amalfi Coast & Naples: Terraced Cliffs, Turquoise Waters & Ancient Ruins, or a combination of these extensions to your Sicily adventure—when you do, you’ll enjoy more time to develop bonds with your fellow travelers.
