Sicily is one of my favorite places to go: the history, the views and the food.
The towns are nestled at hilltops giving picturesque views. During an Art Residency in 2014 I was in Sicily for 4 weeks and traveled the country-side inspired by the hillside views. I was visiting a cheese shop that makes fresh ricotta (for the infamous Sicilian cannoli) and fresh provolone in Castiglione di Sicilia. I had no expectation that I was heading to a beautiful hilltop town with a Norman Castle and this view. Sicily always exceeds my expectations!
If you are going to Sicily I highly recommend visiting the cheese shop in Castiglone di Sicilia it is called Alcantara Formaggi.
