The faunal and botanic richness is of relevant importance for the South Eastern Sicily. Late in the morning (about 12 o’ clock) transfer to Catania to enjoy the Sicilian beaches!!

Next stop Agrigento where we will visit the wonderful “Valle dei Templi” where, among hundreds of almond trees, the rests of the ancient Akragas rise. It was defined by Pindar “the most beautiful city of mortals”. You will see the “Temple of Juno Lacinia”, the “Temple of Concordia” and the “Temple of Heracles”.

 

5th day -  Ragusa > Donnafugata > Modica
Breakfast at the hotel and departure for Ragusa Ibla, , a XVIII century town with many wonderful buildings: the cathedral of San Giovanni, the Bertini and Cosentini palaces, the portal of San Giorgio which are all examples of the baroque architecture. Going on to Donnafugata for the visit of the castle. It was built in XIX century on a pre-existent old tower used by the Normans as a sightseeing. It was build according to baron Arezzo’s will who used it as summer estate, while in recent times it is often used as  film set. In the afternoon we move to Modica, also called “the town of laces” because of its refined decorated buildings and its baroque churches. Its steep staircase with 250 steps and the wonderful front make the Saint George Church full of charm. Moreover the Saint Peter's Duomo, the Capuchin Monastery and the Mercedari Palace are worth to be visited, as well as the typical pastry shops famous for their good chocolate.

 

6th day - Acitrezza > Catania departure
Breakfast at the hotel and leaving for the visit of the fishing small villages of the Ionian coast of Catania. We will enjoy, especially, the wonderful view of faraglioni in Acitrezza. The legend tells that Polyphemus threw them to stop Ulysses' flight who had cheated him. We will observe also the columnar Basalts, typical volcanic rocks arising from the undersea lava flows.  Acitrezza, is also the place that inspired the famous Giovanni Verga’s novel I Malavoglia.
If we are in time, we can spend the last moments in Sicily to visit the “heart” of Catania: the Cathedral, Piazza Duomo, the baroque via Crociferi, the Church of the Colleggiata, the typical fish market la Pescheria.
