Easter in Sicily

Erice is a charming medieval town overlooking the city of Trapani.

I have been to Erice last Easter with a small group of people and I had the opportunity to see the very impressive Procession of the Mysteries. It started from trhe Church of Saint Julian. Wood and glue sculptures of scenes of Christ's Passion are supported and carried by people belonging to craft guilds along the streets of the historic town. Every Year many people take part at the Procession and thousends of people come from all over the world to look at the spectacular Procession. My guests and I have been very impressed by the Representation of the Passion and Death of Christ. Hundreds of Processions are organised in all Sicily in the meantime. Tomorrow will be the celebration of the Resurrection of Christ .For the first time millions of people in Italy will not take part at the Cerimony in their churches, because they are closed, but in their homes. 

I hope next year you will have the opportunity to come and visit us and take part at very impressive Procession of the Mysteries in Erice, Trapani, Caltanisseta or Palermo.

Erice procession

Dear friends,

the current situation the world is facing right now is not easy for anybody. I hope everything will be solved soon and we go back to our normal lives.

In the meantime I leave you with a picture of a granita maker in Palermo.

Granita is a semi-frozen dessert originally coming from Sicily. It is not a sorbet, that is very compact; it is not an ice cream that is creamier. It is just a granita!

It is often served with a yeast pastry called brioche and white cream. It is part of our summer breakfast.

It is made from water, sugar, and other flavourings such as lemon, almonds, pistachio, strawberries, coffee.

In Palermo the granita I like and I often eat, in summer, is the lemon one. And you, have you ever heard about Sicilian Granita?

A tour guide in Palermo

Beeing a tour guide is my passion. I love my city and even better I am proud of showing its beauties and contrasts to the people who want to visit it. I am a friendly, positive and flexible person. I have been an official tour guide since the year 2000, the year I received my offical license. I was born in Palermo and I have lived in my hometown for almost all my life. At the age of 19 I moved to London to study and work. I liked living in London but my family and duties brought me back to my amazing city. Palermo is unique with its beauties and incredible diversity. I can guide you throught the Unesco Sites, the local markets, the treasures and folklore of my wonderful city. I am sure you will have an enthusiastic, professional and informative tour with me.

"To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is not to have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything." (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

I look forward to meeting you and showing you around!
