What people are saying about Corleone, Sicily

Nous avons vécue une journée mémorable . Salvatore est un guide très connaisseur et notre charmant chauffeur Umberto tout au long de ce voyage expliqué et montré l'histoire et ainsi que la beauté naturelle des montagnes et de l'agriculture de cette route qui nous mène dans cette belle ville de Corléone. Nous avons été très choyé de faire un arrêt pour savourer les meilleurs cannolis de la Sicile et nous avons pu comment ils se fabriquent avec les vrais pâtissiers. Dans la ville de Corléone, nous découvrons avec Michel Angelo tous les secrets ainsi que l'histoire du vrai parrain et sa demeure authentique. Très passionnant et intéressant. Par la suite, nous avons arrêté dans un endroit bucolique pour diner dans le village de Ficuzza au Al bosco Ficuzza où nous avons dégusté des pâtes italiennes authentiques avec un décor du Pavillon Royal de Chasse (1803) un imposant palais royal, construit par le roi Ferdinand III. Nous recommandons fortement cette activité, un grand merci à nos guides.

Just back from our trip and thoroughly enjoyed it. Got to try the best ever cannoli and some amazing local cheeses. Loads of interesting facts about Siciliy in general and the visit to the Anti Mafia museum was really informative. Would recommend the trip as not just about the visit to Corleone which was brilliant but loads of other things too.

Our guide, Umberto, was professional, prompt and polite, and gave us the experience we were looking for with history and finding some ancestry. We look forward to returning and visiting with him again!
