What people are saying about Province of Syracuse

This was really an exceptional experience. Hector was so knowledgeable and well connected. We got to see behind the scenes and meet locals at the market, learn about and sample the best local produce and then cook our lunch overlooking the ocean. It was magical!

Ettore was an incredible guide! Walking over the market, tasting food at Borderi and cooking together at Zen & Jonico outside with a view of the sea was a highlight of our trip to Sicily! The winetasting with Giancorlo at Zen rounded the whole experience off.

Bravo and nice, Ettore managed to make my 8-year-old daughter make arancini
