Eat a delicious, hearty, and family friendly dinner at the Borgo Antico Agriturismo. Considered to be some of the best food Sicily has to offer. This meal offers a satisfying variety of dishes. During this time, the Leonide Meteor shower will be taking place (weather permitting). On site there will be an astronomical telescope and an astrophysicist to explain the reason behind this phenomenon. The Leonids occur when the Earth passes through the debris left by the comet Tempel-Tuttle. The comet takes around 33 years to make one orbit around the Sun. People can view about 20 meteors an hour at the peak of the Leonidas meteor shower.
