Experience Sicily

From Euro 485.- for 3 nights Price per person in double room

The Ionian Coast – or the east coast of Sicily – extends from the lava-built harbour town of Catania through charming fishing villages and romantic beaches as far as the magical ancient Greek town of Taormina. The entire coast is dominated by the imperious Mount Etna, whose presence has shaped the whole region both geologically and historically. Etna (UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2013) is without a doubt the main attraction of the region and the hike up its slopes is an unforgettable experience at any time of the year. The towns and villages which lie at its foot are all fashioned from lava rock. To the north of Taormina, the Peloritani mountains stretch out towards Messina with 1,000-year old villages, steep valleys and breath-taking views.

The area surrounding Etna is famous for wild mushrooms, sausages and blood oranges. The specialities of Catania are Pasta alla Norma, Arancini (fried rice balls stuffed with meat sauce or mozzarella and thinly sliced cured ham), Gelati and Granita (originally made straight from the snow on Etna). Vineyards line the steep, fertile shelves of the volcano and, derived from local grape varieties such as Nero d’Avola or Nerello Mascalese, yield excellent full-bodied wines. Convenient direct flights from several airports in Switzerland or Germany are available from a variety of operators and our highly-skilled Private Selection Hotels Holiday Advisors will gladly search out the best flights for you.
