—Goethe

Days 1-2: Siracusa

Explore an archeological park in Siracusa featuring the “Ear of Dionysis” chamber. Then spot gray heron, egret, white/black stork and flamingo before touring the baroque jewel Noto, where an ice cream artist honors tradition.

Days 3-4: Taormina & Mt. Etna
Walk into a canyon of wilderness beauty & discover dwellings from 2000 B.C. Then the ever-active Mt. Etna offers a curious reassurance of the Earth’s vitality. Climb to the crater’s ridge and enter the strange grottoes formed by the flowing lava. Our day is completed with a visit to Taormina and its ancient Greek theater, the perfect stage for Etna’s frequent light show.

Days 5-7: Islands of The Winds
Rich in Greek myth, visit at least three of the Aeolian Islands, including sulfurous Vulcano and enchanting Salina, site of the movie “II Postino.”
