A tour among the most authentic Sicily where literature, gastronomic traditions and art come together in a time travel experience through the streets of Racalmuto, birthplace of one of the most significant figures of the Italian and European twentieth century literature. You will meet your local guide in front of local pastry shop located in the town square where you will taste the famous Tarallo racalmutese, typical cookie made with sugar and lemon, unique in all  Sicily. Here the cultural itinerary starts; by walking through the narrow streets of the town center we will visit the main tourist attractions of the place, the theatre Regina Margherita, the Sanctuary of Maria Santissima del Monte and the House-Museum of Leonardo Sciascia; we will arrive at the main street of Racalmuto where a bronze statue dedicated to the poet is located. Here a delicious show cooking follows: the Cubaita one, a nougat with a unique taste and flavour typically of Sicily. At the end of the tour, you will enjoy a local lunch in a nice trattoria in old town.
