Halesea, Artelier Hotel and Fiume dell'Arte

Immerse yourself in the art and culture of northern Sicily, both ancient and modern. Starting at the Greco-Roman ruins of Haleasa, set on a lonely hillside high above the sea, we explore the ancient city with its Agora, paved street, columns and museum, we than descend to the town of Castel di Tusa where we visit the contemporary art  Hotel Atelier and Fiume dell'Arte (Torrent of Art) sculptures.


The remarkable project was begun in 1990, transforming an unremarkable seaside hotel into a living work of art, where each guest room has been designed by different contemporary artist.  We take guided tour of the hotel, visiting some of its extraordinary rooms and learning the concept behind each "installation".


We then climb into the foothills of the Nebrodi mountains, visiting the Fiumara dell'Arte (Torrent of Art), a display of monumental sculptures by notable contemporary artists which compliment the majestic landscape and express of the unique vision of each artist.


This tour explores an unexpected side of modern Sicily, one that most tourists do not have the opportunity to experience.


Depending on the weather, and time permitting, we hope to visit the following sculptures:

  • La Materia Poteva Non Esserci
  • La Piramede 38° Parallelo
  • Energia Mediterranea
  • Una Curva Gettata Alle Spalle Del Tempo
  • Labrinto Di Arianna


Lunch in traditional Trattoria on route.
