Italy

The dolce vita destination par excellence

An emblematic country of culture, art and good cooking, it’s also a holiday destination par excellence for all those who are looking to relax in the sun, for active holidays by the sea or cultural excursions.

The richness of a quintessentially Mediterranean vegetation is on par with the culture and art that the region is steeped in. Numerous options for excursions promise a stay bringing intense emotions.

Catane

Taormine

Approx. 60 km from Catania airport. Taormina is one of the most beautiful places in Italy, perched on a natural terrace, with Etna as a backdrop. The streets bordered with boutiques, the Greek theatre, Corso Umberto and its many taverns accentuate the charm of the town.
Mazzaro and Letojanni, not far from Taormina, are located directly on the sea; these towns are very popular seaside resorts. The beaches below Taormina are accessible by cable-car and minibus.

This town has been able to hold on to its reputation as the most charming place to stay in Sicily since the days when Greek noblemen from Syracuse came here to relax. Taormina was founded in the 4th century B.C. on the gentle slopes of Mount Tauro by settlers from neighbouring Naxos. Just as they were in the past, visitors today are won over by the sweetness of the air, the purity of the light, by charming villas, palazzi and gardens and by the beauty of the Greek theatre on this plateau 200 m above sea level.
The main thoroughfare of Corso Umberto, and the narrow streets and squares are perfect for a stroll.

Catane

Giardini Naxos

Colonised in 734 BC by the inhabitants of the island of Naxos in the Aegean Sea, this seaside resort was one of the first Greek settlements in Sicily. It is situated on Capo Schiso, 4 km south of Taormina.

Excursions

  • Syracuse (approx. 47,- per person, meal not included)

    This town is a world-renowned archaeological centre. Ruins of monuments, works of art and statues provide a full picture of its history. Founded in the 8th-century B.C. on the island of Ortygia, Syracuse very quickly became an important city, as evidenced by remnants from the Greek and Roman periods. After the Roman occupation, the city fell into decline. Visit: the Fountain of Arethusa, the cathedral, the archaeological site of Neopolis with its latomies (quarries used as prisons), the famous cave known as the ‘Ear of Dionysos’, the Greek theatre and the Roman amphitheatre.

  • Etna South (approx. 35,- per person, meal not included)

    After travelling through the villages of Santa Venerina and Zafferana at the foot of Mount Etna, you will climb to the Silvestri craters at an altitude of 1,880 m.

  • Etna North (approx. 45,- per person, meal not included, 2000m) (approx. 87,- per person, meal not included, 3000m)

    After passing through Fiumefredo and the pine forest of Linguaglossa, you will reach Etna near the Silvestri craters (at an altitude of approx. 2,000 m). You will have the option of continuing your journey by car to enjoy the sunset from the central crater at approx. 3,000 m.

    Same itinerary but leaving from Taormina in the afternoon to admire the sunset near the central crater (June to October).

  • Lipari / Vulcano (approx. 57,- per person, meal not included)

    You leave in the morning towards Milazzo to take the boat to Lipari, visit the island, then continue on to Vulcano, one of the most interesting islands on the Aeolian archipelago. Visit to archaeological sites and bathing on the black beach.

    The Aeolian Islands (or Lipari) are located off the north-east coast of Sicily. Their name comes from Aeolus, the god of wind. Seven of the islands are inhabited: Vulcano, Lipari, Salina, Filicudi, Alicudi, Panarea and Stromboli.
    Vulcano, the closest to Sicily, has a surface area of 20 km² and is made up of three volcanoes. The island is renowned for its geological and volcanic beauty.
    Milazo is a port on the north-east coast of Sicily and is reached in one hour by road. From there you will board a boat to Vulcano. The crossing takes approximately 1 hour 30 min.
    The walk to the Large Crater (386 m) is very interesting, as is the tour of the island by boat (additional charge). However, if perhaps you prefer to take sulphur baths and enjoy a swim in water warmed by underwater springs, then a pleasant day spent in Vulcano offers just that.

  • Undiscovered Sicily (approx. 52,- per person, meal not included)

    In the island’s hinterlands you will be able to visit quintessential Sicilian villages, see a variety of nature and try Sicilian specialities.

  • Sunset over Etna (approx. 99,- meal not included)

    Same itinerary but leaving from Taormina in the afternoon to admire the sunset near the central crater (June to October).

  • Palermo / Monreale (approx. 51,- per person, meal not icluded)

    Depart for Monreale, near Palermo, visit to the 12th-century Norman cathedral, with its perfectly preserved mosaics, and the Benedictine monastery. Free time in the town for a stroll or a coffee in one of the town squares, and perhaps the option of visiting one of the gardens with unobstructed views of the valley of Conca d’Oro. Continue to Palermo, capital of the island located at the foot of Mont Pellegrino, to discover the treasures of this wonderful city.

  • Agrigente (approx. 48,- per person, meal not included)

    The poet Pindare said that Agrigento was ‘the most beautiful town ever built by man’. Visit the Valley of the Temples (one of the best-preserved sites in the world).

    Agrigento is known throughout the world for its magnificent Valley of the Temples and the sacred area of ancient Akragas, one of the largest colonies of Magna Graecia. The Valley of the Temples includes some wonderful remnants from the ancient world: the Temple of Hercules, the majestic Temple of Concordia (one of the best-preserved temples in the Greek world), the unfinished Temple of Olympian Zeus – the largest Doric construction in the western world – the Temple of Hera Lacinia and the extensive Hellenic and Roman district where it’s possible to see dwellings and houses with Hellenic-style patios with their well-preserved coloured mosaics and elegant mural paintings.

  • Etna/Taormina (approx. 57,- per person, meal not included)

    Called ‘Mongibello’, or ‘Gebel’ by the Arabs (meaning ‘mountain’), the highest volcano in Europe (3,345 m) is still active. It is a magnificent natural spectacle and source of great pride to the Sicilians. Continuation towards Taormina, the pearl of Sicily, with a visit to its Greco-Roman theatre offering you a sumptuous view of the coast and Etna.

    You will cross the hinterland of Sicily before arriving at Etna, the biggest volcano in Europe, which is still active. This pride of the Sicilian people is a magnificent natural spectacle. The bus takes you to an altitude of 1,900 m. Afterwards, you will have 2 to 3 hours of free time to climb by cable-car up to the highest point at 3,300 m, if you wish. Not included in the price.
    Followed by departure to Taormina, a wonderful town at the foot of Etna with a splendid view of the whole bay. Free time to visit the town and do some shopping. Don’t forget to visit the famous Greco-Roman theatre! Return via Messina.
