3 nights East coast of Sicily: Fascination Etna


The Ionian Coast - the east coast of Sicily - stretches from the lava stonebuilt port city of Catania through charming fishing villages and romantic beaches to the magical ancient Greek city of Taormina. The entire coast is dominated by mighty Mount Etna whose presence has shaped the entire region geologically as well as historically.

The Etna (Unesco World Heritage Site since 2013) is undoubtedly the king of the region and hiking on its slopes is an unforgettable experience in any season. The towns and villages at the foot of Etna are all built
of lava stone. North of Taormina towards Messina stretch the Peloritani Mountains with millennia-old villages, deep valleys and breathtaking views. The region around Mount Etna is famous for mushrooms, sausages
and blood oranges. Catania’s speciality are Pasta alla Norma, Arancini (deep-fried rice balls stuffed with meat sauce or mozzarella and ham), gelati and granite (originally made from Etna’s snow). Vineyards cover
the lower fertile slopes of the volcano and - pressed from regional grape varieties such as Nero d’Avola or Nerello Mascalese - produce excellent, voluminous wines.

1 night Palermo: cultural diversity


After three eventful days on the east coast, this tour continues via Messina - the “gateway to Sicily” and all along the north coast to the pulsating capital of Sicily: Palermo. The cities of Sicily have always been
of great importance as bases for seafaring and trade. Again and again, new conquerors have infiltrated and left their mark on Sicily’s culture. Thus the legacies of the Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans,
Arabs and Normans intermingle. Nowhere better than in Palermo will you experience the diversity of this Sicilian heritage.

3 nights Pantelleria: the Island insider tip


After a lot of culture and history, you deserve some rest and relaxation! We would like to share with you our discovery - Pantelleria is a remote 83km2 small volcanic island off the Sicilian coast, rich in olives and grapes from which delicious specialities are refined. Pantelleria is a “paradise” that only true travellers can appreciate. Here you will find no discos, no noisy party miles, shopping centres or even traffic jams. The archaeological park in the capital Pantelleria bears witness to the island’s long history. Instead of Prosecco, excellent white wines are tasted - first and foremost the Passito - the golden muscat wine made from the characteristic Zibibbo grapes. Accommodation is in the typical “Dammuso” - square one-room buildings with a domed roof (to collect rainwater), which found its origin with the Phoenicians and is built of volcanic rock. The freshwater lake “Specchia di Venere” (Mirror of Venus), fed by hot springs, invites you to take a mud bath - nature wellness for free! In Cala Sataria in the southwest of the island, you can enjoy a “natural sauna” in the grotto with its white vault of pumice stone in the midst of the thermal springs, which are known for their therapeutic effects.... Let yourself be enchanted!
