During the scenic drive through the Sicilian countryside, we will stop in the medieval town of Erice, which was originally founded by the Phoenicians.

The chocolate has a powdery texture with a fragrant aroma since its recipe is based on the original Aztec recipe for chocolate brought to Sicily from the New World by the Spanish. You will have the opportunity to try this spectacular chocolate during a tasting session in the shop of one of Modica’s most esteemed chocolate-makers. The next stop will be the town of Noto, one of the towns in the Val di Noto that was completely rebuilt in a masterful way in the late Baroque style after the area was decimated by an earthquake in 1693. Once the tour of Noto concludes, we will travel to the island of Ortigia, the historical center of the city of Syracuse.
