Argentina & Chile Luxury Food & Wine Tour with RosaSicily at Easter during Holy Week is a magical place to be and its one of the best times to visit. With the cold months of winter at its back, temperatures are on the rise and spring flowers erupt with abundance all over, as the island becomes a shimmering green. Each town and village revives ancient and picturesque traditions. Some, such as Trapani’s ‘Misteri di Trapani’ are spectacular processions featuring religious symbols, and others like Prizzi’s ‘Ballo dei Diavoli’ depict the dramatic struggle between good and evil. Unsurprisingly, food also plays a significant role in Easter festivities and who better than Rosa & Colin, with their passion for everything Sicilian, to escort this exclusive tour and reveal the gastronomic delights which await you while you enjoy the festivals!
