Your Itinerary In Detail

5-Night Tour

Catania
Touch down in beautiful Catania to discover the pretty streets, large piazzas and lava stone architecture that define this welcoming city. 

 

Siracuse
Continue to Syracuse, a historic city where the remnants of a thriving ancient Greek society stand beside baroque architecture from the Renaissance period. Stop by the San Giovanni catacombs and the Santuario Madonna delle Lacrime, stroll through charming alleyways, walk along the Ortygia peninsula, and admire medieval buildings, palaces and baroque churches. Linger at the port and feel the liveliness of this city, a crossroads of civilizations. Head to the impressive church of Santa Lucia alla Badia, where you can admire Caravaggio's painting: the burial of Saint Lucia.

7-Night Tour

Modica
Discover Modica, one of the richest strongholds on the island since the Middle Ages. Its unique architecture reflects its incredible history, with Norman, Renaissance and Baroque buildings. Don't forget to sample the best chocolate in Sicily!

 

Noto
The most important baroque city in Sicily, Noto is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Whilst situated in an area of famed natural beauty, visitors can also find incredible churches and palaces round every corner. Learn more about its history and the baroque style that is so typical of the city centre. Indulge in the local wine, moscato di Noto, for a heavenly taste experience.

9-Night Tour

Marzamemi
Located in the south of the island, Marzamemi is an old fishing village that has retained its authenticity. Stroll along its harbours, wander narrow streets and admire buildings brimming with character and charm. Several beaches invite you to stretch out and relax.

 

Cavagrande
An abundance of arid rock, canyons, gorges and natural pools make this the perfect place for nature lovers. Find prehistoric traces of life in the caves cut directly into the rock, and admire fantastic panoramic scenery.

 

Scicli
A real gem located 25 km from Ragusa, Scicli will charm you with the magnificent church of San Matteo, watching over the village from the hill. Learn about its history, which dates back to well before 1693. Explore narrow streets full of character and admire the beauty of this UNESCO-listed town. Fans of Inspector Montalbano will recognise some of the locations where the show was shot!

 

Ragusa
Totally destroyed after an earthquake at the end of the 1600s, Ragusa was rebuilt in the Baroque style and is now divided into two settlements: Ragusa Ibla, considered the modern part, and Ragusa Superiore, situated on a cliff. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the old town is home to many baroque buildings, and a spectacular church with breath-taking stained-glass windows.

 

Portopalo di Capo Passero
An old fishing village, Portopalo di Capo Passero has beautiful unspoilt beaches perfect for sunbathing, swimming, or long walks on the sand. You can also spend time on the island of Capo Passero or on the Isola delle Correnti. Heavenly panoramas await...
