"Firstly the cooking classes. Loved Carla who was a delight to learn from. Our mealtimes together were the highlight of the day, chatting to new found friends. Really enjoyed our excursions out, it broke up the week & blended in nicely with my cooking classes. They gave you a nice insight into Sicilian life"
