Day 2 – Breakfast and then departure for Catania. This historic center is one of the Baroque gems of eastern Sicily with its splendid Piazza Duomo and Via dei Crociferi lined with churches and convents. A visit to the fish market held every morning (except Sundays) is a must. A light seafood lunch awaits you at the restaurant. In the afternoon we continue along the Riviera dei Ciclopi, a coastal stretch in northern Catania that offers numerous stories and legends as well as views of the sea stacks rising out of the Aci Trezza sea. Return to the hotel, dinner, and overnight stay.
Day 3 – Most of the day free for relaxation or activities. Dinner at your leisure, perhaps a visit to the weekly open market. In the late afternoon departure for Taormina with an exclusive open bus tour, our guide will introduce you to the beauties of this city: in the historic center you’ll find the churches and the majestic Teatro Greco, and along Corso Umberto high fashion boutiques and artisan shops. Back on the bus for Castelmola where you’ll enjoy a fabulous view of the sparkling lights of Taormina. Here a stop at the Bar Turrisi for a taste of almond wine is a must… but the bar is only recommended for adults!!
Day 4 – After breakfast departure for the morning excursion to Mt. Etna. At 3,350 meters high it is the highest and largest active volcano in Europe. A spectacle of colors: the red of the lava, the white of the snow, and the clear blue of the sky are so captivating you could gaze at them forever. On the way back to the hotel a stop at a distillery to taste Sicilian grappas and liqueurs, including the limoncello produced with the extremely juicy local lemons. Afternoon free. Get ready for dinner at the hotel: not a farewell but an ARRIVEDERCI to this spectacular island!
Day 5 – Breakfast and transportation by bus to the airport.
