Discovering Polizzi Generosa through culture and natural landscapes

3

nights

An itinerary to discover Polizzi Generosa with the people who live there and their stories.
You will meet people who have committed and still commit each day to the work of recovering and safeguarding biodiversity and traditional knowledge.
A half-day excursion in the Madonie park, accompanied by a professional guide, will allow you to discover native flora and fauna as well as some of the most striking landscapes in the world. You will rediscover the bond that exists between man and nature during your day trekking in the company of friendly donkeys that live in the woods of Polizzi, cared for by the Porto di Terra team.

Food is culture and provides a strong bond between environment, work, and community.

Roberta
Roberta Billitteri is an expert in responsible tourism, with her laboratory IL GUSTO DEI COLORI. For Roberta, responsible tourism is, like agroecology, an approach that makes up a holistic philosophy of the place. A philosophy where nature and culture, and therefore territory and community, live in harmony.
