    Be part of this team in order to see an olive grove producing very good and healthy italian olive oil. You are free to explore the area. If there is an interest we can organize a team activity to visit Corleone and a safran field.
    In addition we will visit a farmer and see how it is made fresh italian ricotta and cheese.
    And also visit the olive oil mill in the neighbourtown.

    Sightseeing on sunday could be offered if there is interest and in addition get in contact with local Sicilian people, food, culture
