Palermo, rich in art and culture, waits for us, the city where every June the Gay Pride King of South Italy is elected. Especially Oscar Wilde fell in love with Palermo, where he had stayed for a long while. You are going to see the heart of the Old City, that hide old homosexual love stories. Gay nightlife gather along the historical center, a club upon the others: the Exit. Not only culture, but also relax, going two days just few kms from the capital: we are heading to Mondello, a real heaven on Earth with clear water and fine white sand. Let’s continue with the scents and flavors of the Riserva Naturale dello Zingaro. The Reserve is one of the most enchanting places in Sicily, with stunning panoramas on the sea.
Departure with our private gay guide to Palermo. Our guide will give you a Sicilian welcome with a typical pastry from here, the cassata siciliana. This day is dedicated to the visit of Palermo’s historical center with its famous monuments: Piazza Pretoria Fountain, the church of Martorana and its amazing mosaics, the baroque San Giuseppe’s church, the Cathedral and the famous Palatine Chapel of the Norman Kings, Visit of one of the well known open air markets.

Today we are going to visit Palermo and two of its most famous attractions: the traditional open-air markets of Ballarò and Vuccirìa. In this city is amazing to lose oneself in the narrow streets and wind up in the streets where these markets take place. Discover a new way of shopping, between fruit and fish stands and the scent of the Sicilian street food, such as the pane-panelle sandwich (a sandwich with chickpeas flour frittata inside) or the sandwich with meusa (the Sicilian word for spleen, for the bravest ones). In the afternoon there is time for sweet, with a tasting of typical sweets from Palermo: cannolo, Sicilian cassata, gelo (a sort of pudding), almond dough pastries… In the evening let’s have a gay party at the gay club Exit, in the historical center of the city, or at the Rise Up, where gay and lesbian locals love to spend their nights. Overnight in Palermo.
This morning our guide will take you to an enchanted place in one of the most beautiful gay friendly beaches in Sicily: Fossa del Gallo. A pure relax morning. In the late afternoon let’s go visit the village of Mondello: a mix between ancient and new. Mondello was built where once was a Tonnara, the place where the tuna fishing was put in boxes. In this place now we can see old Arabian-Norman style buildings. Free evening at disposal and overnight in Scopello
Beautiful villas await you: the Villa is located in the unique environment of Riserva dello Zingaro. The evening lights of the Scopello’s Rocca and the entire bay of Castellammare del Golfo are two views that make guests fall in love with these places. Mountains all around, olive trees and fields that go to the sea in an intriguing atmosphere strictly linked with nature.
Today we are going to relax, tasting a drink on the side of the villa’s private pool or going to the beach, just 10 minutes far by foot: clear waters and so much sun will be there for you! Relax in the deep blue water, with the Tonnara on the gulf and the two incredible Faraglioni. Here is where D&G filmed the spot for their profume with the model David Gandy. As tradition claims, you are going to taste the pane cunzatu at the bakery in the center.
Overnight in Scopello.
Another relaxing day: take time just for yourself to swim, getting tan and having fun, recharge your batteries in this outstanding environment.
