    While you are certainly well-fed during this tour, it is definitely the wine that takes centre stage as this is where our host was most knowledgeable. A great way to introduce yourself to the town, navigating side streets and learning about the island's heritage. One highlight was taking in a sweeping view of the coastline and Etna's lava flow by night. I would have liked a list of the wines/grapes mentioned so I could look out for these later in the holiday, but in hindsight I could probably have typed them out on my phone for reference later! A wonderful way to spend an evening.

    A light tasting of local dishes with a few glasses of wine. The guide was nice and told a lot about the history and other things related to Sicily. However, you shouldn't expect a rich dinner or a selection of wine. The price of €75 per person is quite expensive. Still a pleasant experience and I recommend it.

    Brilliant local and foodie experience I ever had

    We visited three absolutely amazing food and wine spots: first one with fish delicatessen and white wines, second with typical homemade apptizers and red wines; third place with surprising sweets and liquors. Between the places we had a great walk through Ortigia jems with friendly and very knowledgeable local guide who shared with us a lot of secrets about local life and traditions of Siracusa. Highly recommended to everyone who visit Siracusa.
