4. BEAUTY, BETWEEN SOUNDS OF THE CITY AND ARCHITECTURE
Unmissable is a jump to the city market, between the screams of fishermen and traders, spices, fish, fruit, stalls. Colors, sounds, delicate and more intense aromas, before a boat ride and a poivy, to a bathroom of art, architecture, wonder. In the center of Piazza Duomo at the Fonte Aretusa, from the Maniace Castle to the Archaeological Park of Neapolis and then go as far as the wonderful Greek Theater and the centuries of history that resonate in every cave, every corner, every step.
5. MEDITERRANEAN CUISINE.
The flavors of the sea are those of fresh fish to be enjoyed in a terrace overlooking the sea or those of a delicious first, enriched with chunks of sword, mint and lemon zest. But how to neglect the goodness and the aromas of the best Sicilian sweets? The pistachio pastries, the typical lemon frost, the delicious Avola almonds, the granite. The aromas of the earth are those sweet and vibrant tomatoes Pachino, but the triumph and an inevitable toast with the red wine Nero D'Avola, to sip in delicious wine bars in the city center.
