Enrich didn't want to grow tomatoes like others around him, he wanted to put the spice in the food others cooked. He succeeded! This is a beautiful, serene place growing an extremely wide variety of herbs and spices. We are doing a food and wine oriented tour of Sicily, and our planner suggested this as a stop. It was time...

Not to be missed if staying near Scicli - the most amazing location for a beautiful herb garden. Enrico was so welcoming, and so passionate about his business, taking us on an hour-long tour around the herb gardens and green houses. A great experience, and highlight of our time in Scicli.

Gli Aroma is a wonderful herb garden in Sicily, a short way north of Sampieri, on the south-east coast. Admission is free, and there is no hard-sell, though a wide range of herb plants and herbal products are available. The range of herbs is absolutely astonishing - some two hundred different herbs, for culinary, medicinal, aromatic and decorative purposes. Recently,... More

I emailed Enrico last minute to see if we could tour the gardens. He replied quickly and offered us a 1 hour tour the next day. I was really pleased to see the variety of plants available on the property. You can tell that this family own and operated herb farm is well planned and maintained with pride. We came... More

This garden is well worth taking the time to visit for anyone who is enthusiastic about gardening, cooking, and consuming herbs and aromatic plants. Enrico is very willing to share his knowledge about herbs, from propagating... More
