Horse Podcast Ep 221: Horse Destination Sicily

Equestrian Adventuresses Travel and Horse Podcast Ep 221 - Horse Destination Sicily

Sicily is Italy’s southernmost province and it is a well known destination for horse riders and active travellers due to its incredibly diverse countryside, its cultural wealth and its natural beauty. After talking about Northern Italy in episode 217, we are leaving the mainland today and heading to this beautiful island in the Mediterranean Sea. As part of a mini series I am talking about traveling to Sicily in general today and in the next episodes I am talking with Christina who has recently ridden in Sicily and filmed a documentary about the rides and the country’s horse culture.

Sicily – Island in the Mediterranean Sea between Europe and Africa

“To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is to not have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything.”

Johan Wolfgang von Goethe

When you’re dining in Tuscany, a restaurant or family home, there will be a meal that everyone loves. Starting with Crostini Toscani, a chicken liver pate on toasted bread right to the end of the meal with a delicious Castagnaccio cake filled with olive oil, walnuts, raisins and more. There are many dishes you won’t want to miss when touring this beautiful part of the world. don’t forget to make sure you also have your corkscrew with you as the wine will be plentiful.
