Our top pick for August

We don’t like to think of August as the end of summer but rather as one of the best months of the year to visit Italy; and there’s nowhere better to enjoy the Mediterranean heat than the magnificent island of Sicily. Steeped in history and framed by gorgeous port towns and stunning beaches, it really does have everything you want from a summer holiday destination. Our week long Sicilian cookery holidays not only give you the chance to learn the secrets behind some of the island’s most traditional dishes, but also allow you plenty of time to relax, explore and enjoy the weather.

For those of you wanting an August holiday which allows you to both discover a new area and learn some new skills, our Sicily cookery holidays are just what you’re looking for!
