In the "Gattopardo" Footsteps
In the "Gattopardo" Footsteps is an experience based on exploring the Literary Park, named so because of the region's connection to the book Il Gattopardo or The Leopard and its author, Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa.
The novel depicts the changes in Sicilian life and society and is the top selling book in Italian history. Your journey will take you from Palermo where Giuseppe was born and wrote The Leopard to Santa Margherita di Belice, Palazzo Filangeri Cuto and Palma di Montecharo. These are all locations that were important in Giuseppe's own life and feature in his book.
This is a great way to immerse yourself in the culture of this part of the island and embark on a route that features both a reality and literature.
You will need to allocate half a day (4-hours) for this experience which, dependent on the size of your party, will be via sedan car (3 people) or mini van (6 people). Included will be your driver and guide to advise and additional hours of the driver at your disposal, can be arranged for an hourly fee.
