Catania has suffered the ravages of both earthquakes and volcanic eruptions and even tyrants, yet it has continually risen from the ashes to become one of Europe’s unique cities. Italian travel specialist and epicurean entertainer Robert Gaglio presents his exciting lecture and lunch session on Sicily’s second largest city—Catania!
During this journey, you will learn about and experience some of Catania’s food specialties (the seafood, citrus, sweets, nuts, and wine) and the beauty (Mount Etna) of the amazing land. In addition, you will enjoy a Sicilian lunch and listen to live performances of your favorite Italian songs. Please join us!
