Hi, I'm Tamara Pulzello and I will be your guide during this trip! I will show you some villages of eastern Sicily: Palazzolo Acreide, Buccheri and Buscemi. I will show you not only some churches considered jewelers of the Sicilian Baroque, but also naturalistic areas such as that of the Iblei Mountains. Don't forget to taste some typical Sicilian dishes; I recommend the "con niuro" pasta, that is pasta seasoned with cuttlefish ink and the classic Sicilian cannoli cannot be missing. Have a nice trip!
