Core of Sicily F&D

 Day-to-day tour

 

Catania

D1 Arrival to Catania airport.
Pickup of the rended car, drive to the center of
Catania, which is Sicily’s second main city for population and cultural richness. Piazza del Duomo, Via Etnea and many of the historical buildings has heightened its charme. The black buildings are built from three-centuries old lava which, combined with baroque architecture, treats the city a singular darken twisted beauty. Overnight in Catania.

 

Etna

D2 Etna volcan (soft trekking up to crater guided environmental visit on request) Siracusa
Mount Etna is the major and highest vulcano in Europe, still active. Only the cone of the crater rises to 11000 feet above sea level. Fumes from the top of the vulcano are always a constant companion of Catanese’s days. A trip nearby of the crater depends on Mount Etna’s temperament, but generally it's possible to walk and enjoy the experience. Overnight in Siracusa

   

Siracusa

D3 Siracusa 
One of Sicily's jewel. Astonishing and wonderful, the great ancient capital of Western civilization at the Greek times and then flourished under the Romans. It’s worthy wandering around the old city, through the finest cafés, bars and pizzerias and enjoying the Parco Archeologico with the Teatro Greco (Greek Theater) and the Anfiteatro Romano. The Classical Theatre festival is still held In June.

 

Noto

D4 Sircausa Noto Scicli Ragusa 
On this day you'll travel to Noto, built like a chessboard. Starting from the main square with the baroque façade Duomo and beautiful palaces like Palazzo Ducezio, Palazzo Vescovile and Palazzo Landolina. Scicli is a baroque town jewel. A surprising place out of the main touristic routes. Ragusa: Romans, Byzantine, Arabs and Norman were among its conquerers. The ancient Ibla (Ragusa old name) is a main example of medieval urban planification. Overnight in Ragusa.

 

Piazza Armerina

D5 Ragusa Piazza Armerina Agrigento
Piazza Armerina has a simple provincial glamour. The yellow stone architecture, together with bulbous balconies (Sicily’s trademark) creates quite an effect. The Imperial roman villa is an unmissable highlight! In case of early arrival in Agrigento afternoon it is possible to go straight to visit the Valley of the temples (optional guided tour) at sunset. Overnight in Agrigento.

 

Agrigento Valle dei Templi

D6 Agrigento Selinunte Palermo
In Agrigento, the deep blue of the sea mixes with light blue of the sky. The atmosphere is even more suggestive thanks to the presence of the Valley of the Temples (Valle dei Templi) where the most impressive ancient Greek architecture still remains vivid and lively. Selinunte, whose name means celery, reached immense growth and richness during the VII century BC. Overnight in Palermo.

 

Vucciria Palermo

D7 Palermo sightseeing 
You can spend the day admiring the masterpieces in the ld city center: the Palazzo dei Normanni, built by the Arabs on the existing structures of an old Phoenician fortress. The Cappella Palatina, a fusion of architecture and splendid painting. S.Giovanni degli Eremiti, old gregorian monastery architecturally Islamical and the Cattedrale with its astonishing mosaics. Overnight in Palermo.

 

Monreale

D8 Monreale Cathedral
Palermo history wanders from Norman’s architecture to Islamic. The city is a fusion of harmonious roman, byzantine and islamical styles. Monreale cathedral (UNESCO site) (guided tour on req) is the most intense example of architectural beauty of our journey.
