Discover Sicily by Porsche
Food & Drink, Wellness, Culture
20 February 2020
For some time off the green, there’s no better way to explore Sicily’s alluring beauty than from behind the wheel of a Porsche 718 GTS. Snaking along coastal roads with the ocean below, soaring past ancient temples and nosing through quaint villages, our one-day Porsche experiences enhance the joy of prestige motoring with the incredible backdrops offered by our curated itineraries.
Ficuzza – Corleone
After taking delivery of your Porsche at Verdura Resort from our Private Driving Concierge, head north on the open road to the striking village of Ficuzza. Enjoy a private visit to the grandiose Royal Palace of Ficuzza, a regal hunting lodge situated on a vast, verdant estate. On your return journey, call in on the ancient, frescoed churches of Corleone, a scenic area immortalised in film as the fictional home of “The Godfather”.
Selinunte – Marsala – Marsala Salt Pans
Cruise westwards along the rugged coast, towards the ancient Greek temple of Selinunte. The sprawling ruins of this archaeological site, gazing out over the seafront, are the largest in Europe. Continue west to Marsala – known for its eponymous fortified wine – to sample the legendary beverage at a historical winery. Before returning, savour a sublime lunch overlooking the vast, photogenic expanse of the Marsala Salt Pans.
Valle dei Templi
The magnificent archaeological site of the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento is one of Sicily’s—and Europe’s—most iconic landmarks. Drive east along the coast to reach this breath-taking heritage site. Embark upon a private tour around its seven Greek temples, gardens, statues and relics, then enjoy a local lunch in the charming town of Agrigento. Stop in at the Almond Museum for a taste of this celebrated local crop before taking the scenic route back to Verdura Resort.
