A brief stop en route to Mt. Etna. Learn about the making of honey, free tastings without obligation to buy. Great products-honey, wine, liquor, soap! Make sure to bring bubble wrap in your suitcase, because you will want to fill your bag!

Wonderful stop on Sicily tour. Honey bee farm. Guide was sensational! Learned more about bees than I could imagine. It also has a little store where you can taste and purchase a variety of items.
