5. Syracuse: Town Museum and Lunch
Journey in time as you discover Buscemi and Palazzolo Acreide. Visit several house-museums and explore ancient trades, traditions and arts.
Enjoy a typical Sicilian lunch at the home of a local family. Take a long walk and stop in one of the oldest pastry shops in town.
Drive through the narrow streets of the typical Sicilian rural landscape, aboard a comfortable minivan, reaching Buscemi, the "museum city". Discover ancient trades, traditions and arts and through an ethno-anthropological route. Visit several house-museums dedicated to the craft professions of the time: the farmer's house, the mill, the blacksmith's shop, carpentry and many other typical trades of the time.
Feel the past thanks to the passion of the citizens who, by donating precious mementos and historical finds, have contributed to maintaining these small houses of Buscemi exactly as they were when inhabited by their ancestors.
Head towards Palazzolo Acreide, a village of Greek origins and built in the Baroque style, where you will visit the Greek Theatre and two churches that are now UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Reach the house of a family from Palazzolo Acreide who will welcome you to enjoy a typical Sicilian lunch together. Take a long stroll and stop in one of the oldest pastry shops in Noto.
