Sambuca Di Sicilia, your must travel destination!

Roberto and I are home in Venice now after a week-long stay in #SambucaDiSicilia #Agrigento. While there we got a glimpse at the beginning of our home restoration, and got to better know our new town and its kind, welcoming people. We took part in the #VieDeiTesori tour of the Borgo Piu Bello D'Italia, enjoyed the street art in the Quartiere Saraceno, and listened to our tour guide, Antonella Munoz Di Giovanna, tell the legend about why the street our home sits on is named for a ghost. We lunched on the most delicious cozze/mussels and local #PlanetaWine at Ristorante Pane e Radici, and dropped off copies of “Beneath the Lion’s Wings” at Sambuca’s Circolo dei Lettori book crossing stations. Across Corso Umberto I, the town's main boulevard, we marveled at paintings by Giovanni Becchina (Sambuca 1909-2001 Palermo) at the Pinacoteca Istituzione Gianbecchina, and met up with new "old” Sambucese friends who introduced us to more neighbors, and then to an American couple who recently purchased a home a stone's throw away from ours. During our stay we enjoyed visiting surrounding towns and beaches, too. All within 30 minutes by car from Sambuca di Sicilia. Below are a few photos I took in and of Sambuca di Sicilia. Convinced they’ll have you placing Sambuca Di Sicilia on your "must visit" travel destination list, I’ll share more of the surrounding towns, beaches, and archeological sites in my next post, too. Enjoy!
