Excursions

  • 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. These monuments all date from the 5th century B.C. In addition to quintessential archaeological treasures, the National Archaeology Museum also houses the famous Ephebos, an original Greek statue from 470 B.C. The 11th-century cathedral and the San Spiritu monastery, with its interior decorated in wonderful Baroque stucco, are the most significant monuments from the modern era.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

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

  • 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.
