and Tasting Tour
Certainly the best way to get to know Favara, its monuments, its traditions, its food, and its people.
An unforgettable experience to live, even for half a day or to be enriched with an afternoon cooking class that will conclude with a Sicilian Style dinner, eating the delicacies you’ve prepared with your own hands.
FAVARA – The city tour, in perfect GoSicily style, provides a pleasant walk that permits you to reach the majestic Renaissance-style Primary Church and its characteristic cupola (among the largest in Sicily) as well as Piazza Cavour, the beating heart of town life.
You can also admire the Chiaramontano Castle, which was home to several noble families and their interesting stories, and the surprising Library of Baron Mendola, great benefactor to Favara.
During this walk, among the narrow streets of the historic center, you will participate in various Taste Experiences. In fact, we will enter pastry shops and laboratories to taste, discover and listen to the stories of their owners; stories that taste like love, passion for their work and their land.
CANNOLO EXPERIENCE – The sensations are indescribable if not experienced first-hand, take the “Cannolo Experience” for example: here every guest will be the undisputed protagonist in filling their own cannolo with ricotta cream made from sheep’s milk, decorate it with orange peel and chopped pistachio and, in the end, taste it in all its majesty!
Certainly there will be no shortage of visits to Farm Cultural Park, which is a Museum of Contemporary Art from which the cultural revolution of Favara sprang over the last 10 years, and Marzipan – the Museum of the Sicilian Almond – which is hosed in the former almond sorting center of Re Bros.
Both locations are GoSicily partners and, on request, the cooking classes (in the case of the full day experience) may also be held inside their welcoming and original kitchens.
The Favara Walking Food Tour will conclude (if you prefer the half-day experience) with a typical Sicilian lunch that includes a series of appetizers, a first course, water, wine and fruit.
