We were very lucky to be shown around this amazing market garden dedicated to herbs and exotic plants with just one other couple, allowing us plenty of time to ask questions of the owner about the business and his vision. Enrico is funny and passionate and a visit to his little piece of Sicily an absolute highlight of our trip.... More

In this area of semitropical climate are growing large collections of officinal herbs, leave-scented pelargonium and drought resistant plants. The owner’s enthusiasm and knowledge drive the visitor trough a journey into space and time, from the native and exotic plants to the ornamental and edible plant brought to Sicily from West -Indies by the colonial spanish traders. Before we leaved... More

Friends of ours from Catania knew the owner and booked a private tour of the herb garden. Not only was it educational, but inspiring to hear his family story, Enrico, but his knowledge and enthusiasm to bring more to his country and business. It's a wonderful place and everyone should go if you are in the area!

A friend and I visited Gli Aromi on a recent visit to Sicily. Enrico, the owner of the property, gave us a wonderfully informative tour of Gli Aromi. He is a particularly interesting, knowledgeable and passionate man. Our visit was a highlight of our trip to Sicily. Thank you, Enrico.
