Do not miss a visit to the multicoloured historical city markets, among which Vucciria remains the most famous one, represented in a painting by Renato Guttuso.
And for a taste pampering journey: saffron, pistachios, dairy products, rickley pears, ‘granite’ (typical Sicilian slush) and ‘arancine’ (stuffed fried rice balls) are but just a few elements and food used in the creative Sicilian cuisine.
