TRAPANI - EFEBO DI SELINUNTE (CASTELVETRANO ARCHAEOLOGY MUSEUM). In addition to the Riace bronzes from Calabria, the famous Greek sculpture Efebo di Selinunte is renowned throughout the world: a striking athlete in bronze, who must have been holding sporting equipment or a weapon in his hand.Not far from Castelvetrano are the ruins of the Greek city of Selinunte. #Trapani #Sicily #Italy #Castelvetrano #EfeboSelinunte #MagnaGrecia #art #archeology #sculture

Trapani

CUSCUSU E MUSCIAME (TRAPANI) -The cuscusu of Trapani is much like the couscous of North Africa, but as well as vegetables, chicken and mutton, a flavourful fresh fish sauce is also added here.Alongside the cuscusu, don’t forget the musseddu or mosciame, tuna fillet (the original dolphin fillet is absolutely out of the question!) salted and dried to be sliced into salads. #Trapani #Sicily #Italy #food #cuisine #couscous #sea #fish #meat #vegetables

Messina

PESCE SPADA AFFUMICATO (MESSINA). Long renowned among gourmets, the famous smoked “Straits of Messina swordfish” is a Sicilian delicacy.The thin, pinkish slices have such a pleasingly subtle flavour and scent that they beat any smoked salmon. #Messina #Sicily #Italy #food #cucina #pescespada #fish #sea #gourmet

Catania

FRUIT JELLIES (CATANIA). The whole of Sicily boasts a very rich, exquisite tradition of sweets: from the cannoli of Palermo to the chocolate of Modica.In eastern Sicily, the extremely high quality of the jellies and jams should be noted, starting with the bitter orange-flavoured ones: a whirlwind of flavour. In any case, you cannot leave the island without first tasting one of its many almond sweets. #Catania #Sicily #Italy #gelatine #jellies #fruit #orange #food #sweets #pasticceria
