Greeks, Arabs, Romans and Bourbons fought over Sicily for centuries and all left their mark on the food, the people and the architecture that we see today.

We visit the ruins of Greek temples in the storied Segesta and Selinunte and in the best preserved archaeological site of Agrigento. Walks take us to the mountain-top town of Erice and along the coastal paths of the Zingaro Nature Reserve, so remote that pack horses are used to carry the supplies for maintaining the paths.

We take a local ferry to explore and have lunch on the island of Mozia, once a Phoenician colony and walk along the lagoon through the saltpans guarded by the old windmills.

In Marsala we visit the famed Florio winery and have the chance to sample the local specialty - seafood couscous.

The Walk Leader and Manager were "fun, prepared, easy to be with, knowledgeable about everything (plants, history, food)"
