Volcanic Sicily

Volcanic landscapes, Baroque elegance and Sicilian gastronomic delights!

2 - 8 people
6 nights
Sicily, the largest island of Italy, holds over 3000 years of history and tradition. The rugged yet picturesque landscape present here, vibrates with the essence of its past and combined with notable architecture and plentiful gastronomic delights, Sicily offers an intensity comparable to none. Catania and Syracuse are two cities that define the ethos of Sicily. Catania, with its vitality and metropolitan atmosphere, sits at the feet of Mount Etna and is often witness to spectacular eruptions of light and mystic charm. Taormina, just north of Catania, shares the same authentic spirit. Perched on a hilltop position and with incredible views of the Ionian sea and Mount Etna, this city exudes a seductive ambience. The Ancient Theatre of Taormina, built in the 3rd Century B.C and the medieval streets... just to name a few things... will enchant even the most well-travelled. Syracuse, with its urban section and the historically rich quarter called Ortigia, is a fine example of architecture, nobility and elegance. It epitomises Sicily's historic importance with many Greek ruins, Baroque monuments and beautiful streetscapes. One of the most beautiful cities of Sicily and a must see whilst in Syracuse, is Noto. Known as the Baroque capital of the island, a stroll along its high street will visually enchant you and leave you with a romantic version of art and architecture.
