Description

Sicily is a country of diversity. The island, with a population of 5 million, only became part of the Italian state in 1860. You should pay close attention to its ever-changing landscape, a feature of this short trip, and then see the characteristic hill-top towns rebuilt after the devastating earthquake of 1693.

You will go on to visit Mt. Etna, the largest and most active volcano in Europe. The climb to the crater takes us through picturesque villages. The lower slopes of the volcano are extremely fertile with groves of oranges, lemons and the Mediterranean flora and of course vines which produce Sicily's best wines. We go through forests of chestnut trees which gradually give way to oak, beech, birch and pine.

The tour will be proceeding to Taormina from Mt. Etna in the summer and to Modica in the winter.

TAORMINA (May to September)

Duration: approximately 16 hours and 45 minutes

On the way to Taormina, we will pass by Ispica, a baroque town; Rosolini, a typical rural town surrounded by orange and lemon groves; Siracusa, the hometown of Archimedes and home to the famous archaeological zone; and Catania a thriving commercial center.

In Taormina, you will be allowed free time to enjoy the unique panoramic views overlooking Giardini Naxos, a former Greek colony, now an international yachting center.

MODICA (October to April)

Duration: approximately 14 hours and 15 minutes

The proud, prosperous and ancient city of Modica is one of Sicily's baroque gems. The main street, "il Corso," is as typical an Italian meeting place as any you can hope to visit, with its cafes and majestic buildings.

The church of San Giorgio is an impressive monument, redesigned after the earthquake of 1693, surrounded by a flight of 250 steps to further enhance the scenic beauty of its fine facade.
