3° giorno: ETNA > ACIREALE > ACITREZZA (Riviera dei Limoni)
Colazione. Partenza per l'escursione sull'Etna, il vulcano più alto d'Europa, un vero e proprio gigante, che sovrasta e "protegge"  la Sicilia orientale. Arrivando a quota 2.000 mt. s.l.m., tra strade che attraversano lingue di lava di antiche eruzioni, si potrà godere il panorama mozzafiato della costa ionica siciliana.  Si continua con la visita della "Riviera dei limoni"  e dei borghi marinari della costa ionica catanese. Una sosta ad Acitrezza, piccolo borgo di pescatori, per godere della meravigliosa vista dei faraglioni, che la leggenda vuole siano stati scagliati da Polifemo ad Ulisse. Si prosegue per Acireale culla del barocco catanese, fiore all’occhiello della cittadina ionica e “capitale” della riviera dei limoni. Qui si visiteranno le Chiese di San Sebastiano, Santi Pietro e Paolo e la Cattedrale.


Breakfast. Departure for the excursion to Mount Etna, the highest volcano in Europe, a real giant dominating and "protecting" the Eastern Sicily. Climbing to an altitude of 2,000 metres above sea level, travelling over roads that cross lava flows of ancient eruptions,  you will have the possibility to admire the breathtaking view of the Ionian coast of Sicily.
The excursion will continue with the visit to the seaside villages of the Ionian coast of Catania. We will stop in Acitrezza to admire the wonderful view of the cliffs, which, according to legend were thrown by Polyphemus to Ulysses. Then we will  go to Acireale, the cradle of Catanese baroque  and "capital" of the coast of the lemons. Here we will visit the Churches of St. Sebastian, St. Peter and Paul.


Breakfast and transfer to Forza D'Agro, a medieval village very close to Taormina, rich in art, history and culture. It is also famous as a location for many films, the most famous "The Godfather" starring Marlon Brando and Al Pacino. The jewel of the village is the Norman castle, a fortress located on the most highest and most inaccessible part of the Valley, more than 420 meters above sea level, with a breathtaking view of the east coast. After the visit of Forza D'Agro the tour will continue to Taormina, with a walk through the picturesque streets of its historic centre. This wonderful town was founded in the IV century B.C. by the Siculi on Mount Tauro. It then became a prosperous Greek town which eventually fell under the rule of Romans. The most famous  monument is the theatre, dating back to the III century B.C. It is the most important archaeological site of inestimable value and place of incomparable scenic beauty.


Breakfast, early morning transfer to Milazzo to embark for Lipari and start the tour of the two islands by boat. After visiting the Castle of Lipari, Monte Rosa and Canneto, you will stop at the Cave of pumice for a swim. Continue to Acquacalda and you will go towards Volcano sailing along Vulcanello, where the lava has created fantastic shapes: the picturesque Valley of Monsters. Leaving on our right the Faraglioni and the Cave of the Angels, you can admire the bay of the Black Sand, renowned for its long volcanic sand beach and the impressive Gran Cratere della Fossa, the active volcano of the island. Eventually you will arrive at the port of Levante, where you will be greeted by the pungent odour of sulfur. Here a tour of the village, a swim in the mud pools, and (for the more sporty) a climb to the crater are not to be missed. Return to Milazzo.

Breakfast and in the early morning departure for Cefalù, a small elegant bathing town and a renowned international tourist centre. It is also important for its artistic and monumental jewels: the Norman Duomo with  its elegant Cloister of the XII century, and the evocative Medieval Washtub entirely dug into stone. Free time for shopping. In the afternoon, we will visit Solunto, located on the northern coast in a wonderful panoramic setting which overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Breakfast, visit of Palermo, the capital of Sicily, a city rich in history and art. A walk in the heart of Palermo will give you the possibility to discover some jewels of the city: the Cathedral, St. John of the Hermits’ Church, the Norman Palace and its Palatine Chapel. In the afternoon we will visit Monreale to see the Cathedral and the adjoining Cloister. On the way back you can hike to Monte Pellegrino, where the Sanctuary of Saint Rosalia stands and where you can enjoy the view of the city and the bay, surrounded by wild and luxuriant vegetation.

An island in the middle of the Mediterranean:

For its central position in the Mediterranean Sea, its remarkable size and its fertile territory, Sicily has always been the best destination for those people who, after having landed on its shores, have settled there and here have remained. These are the reasons for which Sicily has never lost its attraction and interest, and for which it is a place to visit and experience in all its aspects, from the most famous to the less known and predictable . ...continued
