In this area of semitropical climate are growing large collections of officinal herbs, leave-scented pelargonium and drought resistant plants.

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.
