Five days in Sicily
Summer has come to an end, but Sicily always offers many alternatives to spend a few days of vacation even during the winter season. Follow our advice and organize your 5 days in Sicily!
Starting point for our 5 days in Sicily is Catania: easy to reach by plane thanks to the airport Vincenzo Bellini and full of quality accommodation facilities is an excellent base. The center of Catania is easily visited on foot, given the proximity of major points of interest: Piazza Duomo with the cathedral and the nearby fish market, the Via Etnea full of shops, the Ursino Castle and the Vincenzo Bellini Theatre. All these monuments can be easily visited in a single day. If you want to combine artistic interest with culinary interest, then you can participate in the Catania street food Walking tour: a tour based on the culinary specialties of the city. Contact our partner Sicily Day By Day for more information!
2. Etna Tour
Walking through the city you will have seen the highest active volcano in Europe from different angles, it’s time to discover it and see it up close! It’s very easy to get to Etna if you have a car, but if you don’t have one you can take the bus from the central station or book a guided tour. In the latter case you will have the opportunity to know many things about the volcano Etna, thanks to the experience and knowledge of experienced guides in the area. Contact our partner Etna Experience if you want to live this experience: you will not be disappointed!
3. A day of shopping in Taormina
Taormina is a summer holiday destination for millions of tourists. At this time of year it is definitely less crowded, and you can better enjoy everything it offers. We recommend a visit to the Ancient Theatre, with its magnificent view of the sea and Mount Etna, and then a visit to the Corvaja Palace, now an exhibition centre, and a walk through the Town Garden. The day can only end with a little healthy shopping! Walking along Corso Umberto you will find the best shops to buy clothes, jewelry, but also souvenirs to take home!
From Catania, every day, several buses reach the city of Syracuse. Perfect for visiting the city of Santa Lucia and the historic center of Ortigia. Even in winter is relaxing a walk along the seafront and a visit to the cathedral.
5. A romantic dinner on a sailing boat
After spending 4 intense days around eastern Sicily, it’s time to enjoy some well-deserved relaxation. Imagine being able to dine in the moonlight, on board a sailboat, lulled by the waves of the sea. With us you can! Rustic appetizer, linguine with clams, fruit, water and a bottle of white wine: this is the menu that our staff will prepare for your romantic dinner onboard. At the end of the evening you can also decide to make a short navigation admiring from the sea the landscape of the coast of Catania!
