Discover and re-discover Sicily by walking and food experiences. This is Walking Eolie&Sicily’s will and target: to let guests experience the traditions, history and stories of these extraordinary destinations.
We are Sicilians who were born and grew up here at the feet of Mount Etna or at Aeolian Islands, proud to show and share with all guests of Sicily the locations that have emotioned us throughout our life. Places that have engaging stories to tell and authentic and traditional recipes of wonderful taste to offer. How to find and live these amazing experiences? Through us and our experience in Sicily.
Walking is a philosophy dedicated to those who love to go slow through the Sicilian paths and enjoy every single moment and detail. Everyday rush will hide by itself, leaving space to a relaxing experience where heavy thoughts and worries disappear from the mind.
Our walkings are at fabulous Aeolian Islands and around Mount Etna, as well as in the area of Syracuse, Noto, Palazzolo Acreide, Nebrodi Mountains, Pozzillo, Viagrande, Linguaglossa with their enchanting views and contents and authentic tastes through which experience the food of Sicily, the real one passed from generation to generation that we work to maintain alive.
The distinctive feature of Walking Eolie&Sicily is the wish to disclose guests the beauty and authenticity of Sicily through the best traditional food preparations. What is better than tasting the dishes of our old grannies and mums who used to cook for the family with their time and hands, after walking into the nature and breathing fresh air, feeling and becoming actors of this extarodinary Sicilian, Aeolian and Mediterranean stage.
We meet the locals, who were born and grew up here. We listen to their stories, customs, jokes and legends. The locals and the escort guide are the very added value to any tour of Sicily since only through the level of their experience it is possible to reach the roots of a region that has much to tell, share and be part of it.
We thank Giusi for this very thoughtful and beautiful experience of Filicudi, which is perhaps the most beautiful and the least touristic in the Aeolian Islands. A leisurely lunch together with her and the host after some hiking was memorable. We wish we had arranged more activities with her earlier in our trip. We highly recommend this trip.
