Wine Tour & Selinunte with Local Guide Mimmo - Delightful locations plus a journey back in time


The tour combines lovely moments being surrounded by Sicilian rural areas and vineyards set in a delightful location, plus a journey back in time where the Greeks left a unique heritage

The island is renowned for the many outstanding wines and excellent olive oil, some of them produced in this area (southwest of Palermo) which is famous for a great wine and olive oil production, but also for the soft hilly landscape and pleasant sandy beaches.

Selinunte is one of the most evocative places in Sicily, also one of the most impressive of all Greek sites, never having been built over in modern times. In the 5th Century BC it was second only to Syracuse. The archeological site includes several temples, part of the excavated ancient city, amazing ruins more than 2500 years old and a beautiful landscape.

**Tour NOT available on Sundays**

For up to 6 travelers

Itinerary

Relax on a scenic drive (1. 5h) through the countryside to reach the southwest part of Sicily. Visit of an ORGANIC OLIVE FARM (USDA/National Organic Program) in the Belice Valley. The prestigious "Nocellara del Belice" olive variety has been grown here for centuries. An unrepeatable combination of the local soil and microclimate gives origin to DOP certified table olives and extra-virgin olive oil.

The day includes a guided tour at the archeological park of SELINUNTE. Inside this marvelous site visit the Eastern Hill with its temples, the Acropolis with the ancient city and many other interesting excavations dating back to the 7th century BC which are considered among the most important in the Mediterranean.

Next visit a renowned local WINERY which is embedded in a charming and unique context. Its variety of excellent wines, cellars and vineyards makes this destination a special place. During the wine tasting session you'll get more familiar with the local grapes from the area

A Recent Review of this tour

Mimmo showed us sights on Sicily that I never thought I would see in my lifetime. His knowledge of the area and sensitivity to our needs (two of us were older) was wonderful. In addition, his pride in his home island was heartwarming. I hope to be able to visit Sicily again and, if that happens, you can be sure I will be booking another tour with Mimmo.
