The travel: The leading city of the Belle Epoque, Palermo became the top destination of the bourgeoisie and aristocracy on the Grand Tour. Drawn to the mild climate and charm of the proverbially welcoming city, travellers often spent many months in Palermo. Nowadays, Palermo is a city  of contradictions and you will fall in love with her. A city full of life, you will walk and breathe its history and culture, reflected in its splendid churches and monuments.

The stay: All of our historic residences are centrally located.

The Learn: You will learn how to use your hands and appreciate the importance of dexterity and time. When creating something from scratch – using the raw materials, your own hands and creativity – you will understand that quality can only be obtained with time and attention to detail. Satisfaction will be gained in valuing the quality of the product created.

The use of medicinal herbs in Sicily has ancient origins. We have created a workshop during which you will learn the methods to process the herbs to make herbal teas, infusions, and medicinal oils. All combined with a visit to the Botanical garden where you will take part in an outdoor workshop. The course is taught by a qualified herbalist.
