A day tour from Palermo or Agrigento
There are places in the countryside of Palermo sadly famous for events involving the Mafia and for having been the home of many Mafia bosses now locked-up in prison. This tour allows you to visit some of these sites and to admire them for their monuments and for their natural beauty
We will drive into the beautiful countryside of the province of Palermo. Towering in the distance is a spectacular-looking mountain called Rocca Busambra, a nature sanctuary where eagles nest, but gruesomely used in the past by the Mafia to hide corpses in its crevices. Then we will move on to the famous town of Corleone. Founded in ancient times and then colonized first by Arabs and later by Lombards, this little town has maintained a medieval aspect within the surrounding green farmland. Although this town was home to a number of Mafia bosses in the past, you will be surprised to be greeted by its friendly citizens, an excellent example of the typical Sicilian hospitality that can still be found in the rural areas of this island. Then we will drive just outside town to visit a family owned winery and farmhouse. There we will have a chance to try out some of the wines together with a Sicilian country-style meal.
