Experiences

BY BOAT, ALONG THE ETNA COAST
FROM THE PRIMITIVE BEAUTY OF THE RISERVA DELLO ZINGARO TO THE WHITE CLIFF OF SCALA DEI TURCHI

You will discover the Sicilian nature, varied and luxuriant, with its spectacular views such as the one of “Timpa di Acireale“, a lava balcony overlooking the sea that hides small beaches and mooring points. At the Riserva Naturale dello Zingaro, you’ll be surrounded by bays and the green and blue nuances of the sea. You’ll enjoy both the beauty of Scala dei Turchi – a milk-white cliff that seems to have been carefully carved by an artist – and the picturesque paint offered by Gole dell’Alcantara.

ETNA TOUR
DISCOVERING THE HIGHEST ACTIVE VOLCANO IN EUROPE

When at Torre del Filosofo, you’ll be in front of an enchanting view that extends to the sea. Accompanied by mountaineering guides you’ll walk on the volcano’s slopes, whose ground looks like plowed land, and whose consistency is instead solid and porous, typical of the historic flows that gradually created the amazing landscape of Etna.

THROUGHOUT SICILIAN HISTORY AND ARCHEOLOGY
SURROUNDED BY THE CHARM OF THE ARCHITECTURE IN CATANIA, THE BYZANTINE ART OF PALERMO AND THE DORIC TEMPLES

You will discover the art and the history of Sicily, between medieval hamlets and typical alleys, experiencing different historic periods throughout unique evidences such as the Cattedrale di Sant’Agata and the lava stone elephant of Catania. You’ll visit Palermo, a city rich in monuments, residence of Emirs and kings. Symbol of the Arabian-Norman period, the Sicilian capital also shows many examples of byzantine art from the medieval age. All this is combined with an ancient heritage consisting of Doric temples and archeological parks like the Segesta one and its suggestive Tempio Solitario.

MARINE HAMLETS AND HEAVENLY BEACHES
THE CHARM OF THE SICILIAN LAND

When in the most well-known marine hamlets of south-eastern Sicily, you can smell the perfume of the sea. You’ll get lost in the fisherman’s villages, like Marzamemi and Portopalo that live in their own atmosphere far from space and time.
