Join Oldways and world-renowned nutrition and lifestyle medicine expert Dr. David Katz and his wife, Dr. Catherine Katz, a scientist and Mediterranean cooking expert, for a week-long exploration of the dazzling island of Sicily.
We’ll spend four nights in Palermo and three in Siracusa (Ortigia), with lots of adventure in between. In Palermo, we’ll visit spectacular food markets and museums, along with a longer guided tour of the Monreale Cathedral and its magnificent mosaics. We’ll have a day at Anna Tasca Lanza’s legendary cooking school/winery/restaurant/hotel Regaleali, and another day at Agrigento, a large archaeological site with well-preserved Greek temples. We’ll finish our week in and around Ortigia, a small island which is the historical center of the city of Siracusa, well known for its stunning Greek amphitheater built in the 5th century BC.
