Most people who travel to Italy do not visit Sicily—the largest Mediterranean island just off the “toe” of Italy’s boot. Sicily’s multicultural heritage reflects a land settled and conquered by almost a dozen civilizations and countries over the 3,000-year history. This presentation will dig deep into the culture and food history of this mystical island. We will discuss its most popular sites, architecture, art, and of course, its amazing food.
There will also be a live musical performance of popular Italian songs.
Robert Gaglio spent 25 years in banking and wealth management before he decided to pursue his passion for Italian cooking and his culture. As a result, he created Italian Culinary Tours, a specialty travel company that creates unique culinary tours in the diverse regions of Italy.
