    Very moving and lifetime experience, learning about the Mafia and Antimafia movement in Corleone, Palermo, and Italy. An unforgettable visit.

    On a drive back from Cefalu we saw the sign for Ficuzza and after some research thought we'd give it a go. We were really glad we visited. We did a 2 hour hike through woodland and stopped midway at the picnic tables made from tree branches for our packed lunch. It was peaceful and shady and we were lucky that the weather was not as hot as it had been so the whole experience was memorable.

    The hunting lodge commissioned by King Ferdinando 1 of Naples and designed by the architect Giuseppe Marvuglia is beautiful. The building now holds an interactive exhibition of flora, fauna and wildlife. You can only visit with a guide and only when they have enough people to take around so, as interesting as it may have been, the waiting around meant we did not have time to finish the tour. In addition having to see it with the guide who (nice as he was) did no more than press the buttons for the videos in each room seemed rather pointless! Nonetheless, the collection is very impressive and what we saw of it very informative.

    We didn't manage to see the birds and animal conservation next door but may try and head back to do another trek in the next few days as the town of Ficuzza is charming and worth another visit.

    This is a fantastic account of Mafia activity and of the brave souls who fought against them. Situated in a house confiscated from a Mafia member, it sits in a quiet street in Corleone. Our young guide was clearly passionate about the cause and gave us a fascinating account of key stories and characters along with an explanation of the symbolism in the building. Filled with vibrant, thought provoking art. A very moving and inspiring experience.

    Honestly, there is not much to see in Corleone. Beatiful country scenary. It's a medieval town with a handful of resturants on the main street. We went through the cemetary hoping to see family names but did not see any. Most of the monuments and tombstones are from the 20th century, our people came over in the 1900's so any distant relative would be older than that.

    We arrived late in the morning on a Thursday and had no appointment and no real intentions on eating. We just asked for a tasting and possibly a tour of the winery and were planning on buying some wine. They quoted us a price which we saw as very reasonable for our last minute walk-up. We were met by a young man named Massimiliano Battaglia who went out of his way to not only show us around and explain how the whole process works but he also provide us with an amazing lunch and five wines for tasting were included. The food was fresh, hot and very good and the wine was outstanding. He provided us details on each wine he brought to the table, explained what meals go well with each wine and answered all of our questions, We walked out of there with a case and extra three bottles of wine. That's how impressed we were. Massimiliano serves this winery well and we are thankful for the time he spent with us, as it was last minute.

    I spent one year planning a six week tour of southern Italy, which included two weeks in Sicily, for our 50th anniversary. As a surprise for my wife, Prizzi and Corleone were must do stops as her maternal and paternal grandparents, etc., came from both towns respectfully. Neither of us regretfully speak Italian but I was determined to let her experience her heritage as best I could. Prizzi, although beautiful, couldn’t provide any guides but Corleone had one local that was available…Leoluca…a knowledgeable, exuberant and well spoken young man. What a joy to be with him as we explored his town! Without him, we would have gone to the CIDMA (anti Mafia museum), looked at a couple of old buildings and then moved on, but that didn’t happen as we spent 4 incredible hours learning about the town, it’s sordid past up to its present. To my surprise, and my wife’s delight, Leoluca brought us to the Municipal Building and with a little cajoling, convinced the three ladies there to dig into the record books to find information about her grandparents wedding, where they lived and what her great grandfather did for a living. He then took us to the very house where they once lived. It was the thrill of her life! If you’re going to make the trip to Corleone, don’t shortchange it by going on your own. Leoluca lives, breaths and knows his town. You will not regret it!
