We begin our walk around the triumphal arch "PORTA FELICE" and continue through the corso to the cathedral, the Palazzo Ducezio, the small theater Vittorio Emanuele, the campanile of the San Carlo church and much more. Afterwards we treat ourselves to a refreshing refreshment. How about a "gelato", or a "granita", that in Noto, should be especially good!

Baroque façades of bright limestone await us in Ragusa, where the "Commissario Montalbano" in front of the San Giorgio church solves his cases and praises the good local cuisine on television. In the last few decades, the dreamy south-east has become the flywheel of tourism on the island. A walk through the old town streets of Ragusa Ibla will clarify that.

After loading the suitcases we drive to Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe. The mighty 3,300 m high Etna is a geological challenge with its ongoing activity. It can be a look into the earth's origin. Undoubtedly, the fiery spectacle is one of the most breathtaking natural spectacles on our planet. In close succession, the black-gray lava fields of the younger eruptions alternate with lush gardens and palm groves that emerged on the fertile ashes of the older eruptions. The bus goes up to a height of 2,000 m. The Silvestri craters seem like a moonscape.

After the lunch break departure to Vulcano, the activists can march to the crater (+/- 388 m.
