The White Lotus Tour will take you to marvellous locations on the Sicilian island, those where the second season of the famous TV series White Lotus, recently awarded Best Miniseries 2022 in the USA and winner of two Golden Globes, was set.
What's on the tour? We'll let you find out now!
The destinations of the White Lotus Tour
Celebrating La Dolce Vita and the iconic golden Mediterranean holidays, the miniseries' director, Mike White, has chosen specific Sicilian destinations for filming to offer his audience and his rich and luxurious protagonists unique and sought-after locations.
These locations, therefore, will be the ones present and planned in this unforgettable journey.
Taormina, first protagonist of White Lotus 2 filming
The tour will start in beautiful Taormina, since most of the scenes of White Lotus 2 were filmed there and at the legendary five-star Hotel San Domenico Palace, where several famous figures such as Oscar Wilde, Sophia Loren and many others stayed in the past. The day will captivate you with a tour of discovery of Taormina with its medieval-looking villages, colours, scents and Mediterranean landscapes.
You will not miss a visit to the Giardini Naxos, another filming location, continuing with a boat trip to Isola Bella, to enjoy its spectacular maritime atmosphere and typical Mediterranean restaurants, such as the Michelin-starred Principe Cerami or Otto Geleng.
Noto, visit on the second day of the White Lotus Tour
The second destination of the Tour will be Noto, a splendid Baroque town, where an enthralling Wine Tour will await you at the Planeta Feudo di Mezzo estate.
The day will continue by enjoying a cassata from the Caffè Sicilia in the city centre, then on to the ancient monastery of Villa Elena. On screen, this structure represents the home of Quentin, one of the characters in the miniseries, unfortunately the place is private property and it will not be possible to visit it inside.
Catania, Cefalù and Palermo ready to welcome you
Next stop will be Catania, where you can enjoy a typical local granita.
Next, the picturesque Cefalù will welcome you for a stopover of a couple of days!
Here, you can visit the famous historical centre, the Norman cathedral, overlooking one of Sicily's most beautiful beaches, and discover the itinerary of craft workshops.
The final stop on the White Lotus Tour is Palermo!
The city, besides being a pearl of Sicily, is famous for its Arabic cultural and architectural influences! It will be possible to visit the two most famous markets in Italy, namely, Ballarò and La Vucciria, where street food is often found!
The Palermo tour will continue to the Cathedral, the Palazzo dei Normanni, and finally to the opera house Teatro Massimo, where Tanya, one of the protagonists of the series, attends the opera of Madama Butterfly.
We are sure that this will be one of the most beautiful trips you can take, whether you are a White Lotus fan or just a lover of heavenly places!
