Rite of Spring

The focus of this month's Sicily Magazine is Spring. This includes the seasonal cuisine, of course, but also the places to visit. Two that capture our attention are Segesta (shown), which noasts the best-preserved Greek temple, and Ficuzza, a forest preserve around the Bourbons' royal hunting lodge erected in the English style two centuries ago.

At Ficuzza, a great place to sample local country cuisine is the Antica Stazione, an old railway station, built in 1886 and recently restored - the railroad tracks no longer exist. The Stazione is now a restaurant and inn. They may offer a few of the delights on our Sicily food page. Worth a visit if you're in the area.

Sicily Concierge offers personalized excursions to these destinations and others, and Segesta in included in our weekly Sicily tours.
