Itinerary
1
day
Etna and Taormina

During this day we will get to know the true Queen of eastern Sicily, who is called by the natives as a muntagna (The mountain): the volcano Etna.

Right after breakfast we will begin our journey headed to the Rifugio Sapienza (Sapienza Refuge, at elevation of 1800 m) stopping in front of the Crateri Silvestri where, between the green and the red rock, we will  admire the top of the volcano. Once finished lunch, we will visit the typical chalets of the area to do some shopping.

Throughout the afternoon we will reach Taormina; there, walking along Corso Umberto, we will visit the beautiful Greek theater, Palazzo Corvaja and the Odeon, without missing the chanche to stop and appreciate the magnificent seascape.

Then we'll move for dinner and overnight stay in a farm or in a hotel.

2
day
Agrigento

After breakfast we move towards the southwest of the island to reach the City of the Gods: Agrigento.

Visiting the Valle dei Templi (Valley of the Temples) is like going on a long journey backwards through the centuries. You will surely be amazed by the majesty of Tempio di Giunone (the Temple of Juno),  Tempio della Concordia  (the Temple of Harmony), and that of Ercole (Temple of Hercules), to then discover and analyze the archaeological site with the Tempio di Zeus (Temple of Zeus) and that of the Dioscuri (Temple of Castor and Pollux).

At the end of the day, after a break, we will take a quick look at another site: Luigi Pirandello’s house or in alternative a walk in Scala dei Turchi before saying goodbye.
