Program:

01 day: Arrival in Catania
Flight to Catania and welcome by Albaincoming tour guide. Depending on the arrival, a walk through the city can be made. You can visit the Dome, Via Crociferi, Giardino Bellini, etc. To get you started, we will serve you a small snack with "arancini" (rice balls) and a glass of wine at the cathedral square of Catania. Then drive to the booked hotel in Syracuse. Dinner and overnight.

 

02 day: Syracuse
Breakfast buffet. Today you will visit the largest and most powerful city of the Greek era, the archaeological zone with the quarries, the Greek theater, the sacrificial altar of Hieron and the Roman amphitheater. In Ortigia, the old town of Syracuse from the 14th century b.c. Visit the Arethusa Spring, the Cathedral and the Temple of Apollo. It is said that in the 8th century the ancient and large city of Syracuse was founded. A walk through the food market of Ortigia with its local products lures us to the test. Then drive in an orange plantation of the IGP (Indicazione Geografica Protetta) consortium.

 

03 day: Excursion FD - Ragusa Ibla - Modica
The highlights of the Sicilian Baroque we find in Ragusa. Here we take a walk through the old town streets. We see the impressive San Giorgio Church, a masterpiece of Sicilian Baroque by Rosario Gagliardi. In Sicily, Ragusa is known for good food, reason for us to visit a typical restaurant in the area and to be served some specialties of the region. Food curiosities of the region are the carob trees "Kharruba" which create a unique landscape in the surroundings of Modica and Ragusa.

04 day: Etna - Taormina
You drive through lemon and orange plantations with unique landscape panoramas to the largest active volcano in Europe, the Etna. The journey takes you to the "Silvestri crater" at about 2,000 m. Height. From here optional with the cable car at 2,600 m. or jeeps up to approx. 3,000 m. to arrive (price approx. € 65.00) Afterwards possibilities to visit one of the numerous DOP products of the Etna. We produce the granita as in the old days and then go to a distillery where the Etna fire is produced. Drive to Taormina.

Taormina, the ancient "Tauromenion" 358 BC. founded. Throughout the centuries, Taormina has remained one of the most beautiful cities on the island. The location, the climate and the urban character of the city, that is what makes Taormina so endearing. Then visit the Greek theater, of which Goethe said on May 7, 1787: "If one sits down where formerly the supreme spectators once sat, one must admit that probably never an audience of theaters had such objects in front of them". Through a missing piece you can see the majestic outlines of Etna

05 day: Once around the cone
A "route" between characteristic dry stone walls of black lava rock and inexhaustible landscapes, between vineyards, orchards and citrus groves, past Medieval castles, picturesque Etna villages. You also visit the Gole dell'Alcantara They are up to 20 m deep and 4-5 m wide and have eaten for thousands of years in the lava rock of nearby Etna. The lava rock is also one of the most characteristic features of the gorges. The rock of the walls consists of basaltic lava, which is low in silicon and rich in iron, magnesium and calcium. A slowly cooling lava flow finally enabled the prismatic, pentagonal and hexagonal forms. These rock formations, along with the erosion of the water over thousands of years, formed the characteristic basaltic pillars of the gorges.
Afterwards drive to Bronte, here you can see the numerous applications of this fruit.

06 day: day for free
