Trip Summary
3 nights in Catania

Situated at the foot of the active volcano Mount Etna, Catania is the second largest city of Sicily. Much of the ancient monuments of the Roman city have been destroyed by the numerous earthquakes, but there are still several interesting places to visit: the Theater (2nd century), The Amphitheater (2nd century), The Odeon (3rd century CE). The so-called Liotru, symbol of the city, a manufact in lava stone portraying an elephant and surmounted by an obelisk, is probably from Roman times.


2 nights in Messina

Messina has a somewhat explosive history, but despite that it is a thriving town with characteristic annual festivals and celebrations of its long history.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights


2 nights in Cefalu

Cefalu is notable for beautiful sunsets, unpretentious charm, and a very appealing blend of ingredients for an Italian seaside holiday. Sandy beaches, a picturesque historic town on a rocky headland, some high culture in the shape of a fine Norman cathedral, decent transport links, Sicilian food and sunshine all add up to make the town one of Italy`s most attractive seaside destinations.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights


2 nights in Palermo

Palermo is the capital of Sicily, notorious for its mafia glamour. All organized crime aside, Palermo has plenty to offer to the intrepid visitor. Palermo`s Arab-Norman buildings are unique on Earth. There are also plenty of treasures to uncover in its rather forgotten museums. Arabic and North African influences are still visible in outdoors markets such as Vuccirria, and an interesting mélange of Arab, Byzantine, Norman and baroque architectural styles are visible to the trained eye.

Italy

For centuries, Italy has drawn foreign visitors, mostly for its architectural, artistic and scenic splendors. Italy can truly be all things to all people. For some the Italian experience is full of passion and excitement, urbanity, crowds and noise. For others it is a quiet rural idyll where the traditional life can be experienced. Its great cities are replete with fantastic works of art ranging from the Roman times to the Renaissance. Even then, many visitors will forego the rich attractions of culture in favor of some of the most unspoilt beaches and spectacular mountains in the world.
