8. Etna: Tour in a Vintage Car and Cooking Class
Departing from Catania, you will enjoy the journey in a vintage car; along the way you will be able to admire the characteristic villages along the way and enjoy the view of a unique landscape. Once you arrive at the presence of Mount Etna, specifically in Zafferana Etnea, you will find yourself immersed in the volcanic landscape of Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe.
You will stop at a farmhouse in Trecastagni where you will be greeted with a welcome toast. You will be able to visit the facility, the small millstone from the late 1800s and walk among the rows of vines.
Once back at the facility, you will don your apron and begin your Sicilian cooking class. You will try your hand at preparing appetizers such as fried arancinetti, caponata and parmigiana; to simple but flavorful first courses such as pasta alla norma and pasta with sardines and wild fennel.
Once you have finished preparing and cooking the dishes you have made, you will be able to sit down at the table and enjoy them together with other typical local foods and then finish with a dessert from the Sicilian confectionery tradition.
Finally, you will visit a local honey factory so that you can end the experience in the sweetest way possible.
