  • Take the time to explore Sicily

    2010-09-28

    One of the advantages that empty nesters have when they travel is that they'll likely have a bit more time on their hands to really explore a region. The island of Sicily in the Mediterranean is one destination that definitely rewards that kind of investment, as there are plenty of interesting opportunities and cultural experiences just waiting to be had.

    The New York Times recently profiled the region and the efforts of one local tour operator to show sides of the island that many tourists don't normally experience. A traveler might enjoy a great meal in one of the island's many restaurants, for example, but it's unlikely that many take the time to chat with a local farmer as he makes ricotta cheese from goat's milk. Another tour involved sitting in with a Sicilian chef, who teaches visitors how to make delicious traditional dishes like pasta with tomatoes and zucchini and chicken with raisins and walnuts.

    Apart from these types of tours, however, Sicily is simply an island that needs to be explored on its own. Empty nesters will likely be struck by the architectural beauty of the many villages, but the island also offers plenty of prime shoreline for those who simply want to relax.
