Le vie dei Tesori 2021 –  one hundreds sites to visit in October

Le vie dei Tesori 2021 – More than one hundreds “tresaures” to visit this October in Palermo. Don’t miss it!

“All of Palermo to experience, from the ground, from the sky, from the sea. There are 87 places to visit, many of which are open for the first time; 26 special experiences; 100 walks; 9 out of town itineraries. And then a festival within the festival, which will animate the theater and music venues. Special visits with tasting. And a new podcast project on the city with ten precious friends of the Festival – academics, art historians, museum directors, scholars, writers – which is a joy to listen to. And again a videomapping that will transform a historic building into a home of wonders. The great party of Palermo is back for the fifteenth year!

This is the description of “Le Vie dei Tesori” that you find on the official website: https://leviedeitesori.com/palermo/

How to explain this sort of festival to our tourists? Consider that Palermo as other Italian art cities has thousands of beautiful sites  not open to the public. Well, every weekend of October ( Friday, Saturday and Sunday ) more than one hundreds sites will be open for a guided tour for a cost of only 1,8 € . It’s a chance to discover what is not in the usual tourist routes doing it together with the citizens of Palermo, walking in the historical center and going from place to place.

October is a perfect time to visit Sicily, the weather is still mild and we wear cotton clothes and sometimes a sweater in the evening.



Imagine a cluster of houses located near an ancient cave, where you can experience the life at the end of the 19th century with all the peculiar crafts in an old village in Sicily as well as the nativity in the hearth of a cave, thanks to the work of an entire community. This the “Presepe”of Custonaci that takes places for a few days from Christmas to the Epiphany in the Mangiapane Caves in western Sicily.

What is unique is not only the location, but expecially the way you experience these scenes of everyday life; just looking from the doors or the windows of this little village. The tools, the clothes, and the products are all real, there is nothing fake. The people of Custonaci, involved in this big set, seem to enjoy what they are doing, and can interact and explain their work. The atmosphere is magical and the reconstruction is absolutely authenthic.
