Your Itinerary In Detail

Syracuse & Noto

Syracuse stands as a captivating blend of architectural magnificence and cultural heritage amidst the picturesque Sicilian countryside. Its Baroque wonders and echoes of Magna Graecia bear testament to a rich history shaped by civilizations spanning centuries, from Romans to Normans. Highlights include Neapolis Park and the historic Ortigia island.


Within the esteemed Val di Noto, Syracuse's province shines as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with Noto as its crown jewel. Despite destruction by an earthquake in 1693, Noto's rebirth birthed enduring masterpieces, showcased along Corso Vittorio Emanuele. From the majestic Porta Reale to the opulent Palaces of Nicolaci and Ducezio, Syracuse's timeless charm beckons.

Marzamemi & Etna

Marzamemi, a quaint fishing village in the province of Syracuse, lies just a short distance from Pachino and the picturesque baroque town of Noto. With its charming yellow houses and renowned Tonnara di Marzamemi, it's among Italy's most enchanting villages.


From here, explore the Vendicari nature reserve, a European wildlife haven boasting freshwater wetlands, salt-clay plains, and pristine beaches where flamingos, herons, and cormorants abound.


For the adventurous, Mount Etna beckons as Europe's most active volcano, offering a dramatic landscape of dark rock and fiery lava. Climbing to its summit at over 3,000 meters rewards with awe-inspiring crater views at 3,300 meters altitude.

Taormina & Sicily

Taormina, perched on Sicily's eastern coast by the Ionian Sea, draws crowds year-round as one of the globe's most enchanting destinations. Its wealth of attractions and mild climate make it an ideal spot for visitors at any time. The ancient Greek Theatre, dating back to the 3rd century BC, stands as the city's emblematic monument, offering a glimpse into its rich history.


Meanwhile, in southeastern Sicily, the picturesque town of Scicli rivals its more famous neighbours in Baroque splendour. Rebuilt after the 1693 earthquake, Scicli now boasts charming Baroque churches and palaces lining its old town streets. Begin your exploration at Piazza Busacca, where the statue of local benefactor Pietro di Lorenzo presides, surrounded by historic landmarks like the Chiesa del Carmine and its adjacent convent.

Modica & Ragusa

Ragusa, nestled in southern Sicily, is a Baroque treasure trove rebuilt after the 1693 earthquake. Divided between modern Ragusa Superiore and historic Ragusa Ibla, the latter offers stunning views from below. Don't miss the grand Cathedral of San Giovanni Battista or the multifaceted Donnafugata Castle.


Just a short drive away lies Modica, equally ravishing after its Baroque revival. Divided into Modica Alta and Modica Bassa, it boasts the iconic Cathedral of San Giorgio, designed by Rosario Gagliardi. Wander its streets, discovering hidden gems like the Byzantine cave church of San Nicolò Inferiore.


Amidst daily life's sights and scents, indulge in Modica's famed chocolate, a delicious link to its Aztec-inspired past.

Your Destination


The largest island in the Mediterranean, Sicily is bursting with wonderful food, ancient ruins, and a dreamy coastline


With so many cultures having passed through this island, it’s not just Italian culture you can experience but also Greek, Byzantine, and Habsburg influences. Nowhere is this clearer than in Palermo, the island’s capital, with its variety of religious monuments and cuisine, or the chic town of Taormina, with its ancient theatre - a rare treasure trove of Greek & Roman architecture.


In the northeast of the island, Mount Etna presides over the city of Catania, with its UNESCO-listed historic centre and grandiose palazzos. If you’re pining for a more relaxed stay, the fishing village of Cefalu is a wonderful spot, with plenty of vantage points for stunning coastal views and a variety of beaches with crystal-clear waters.


In the south of the island, Licata is a quieter, family-friendly destination with a tranquil beach and delicious fresh seafood.
