During your stay, you can choose to join a selection of great-value excursions to many places of interest.

This half-day excursion takes us to Sicily's capital, which reveals its varied heritage in its buildings - the Cattedrale, the Royal Palazzo dei Normanni and the Archaeological museum.

Etna and Taormina (Cefalu & Santa Nicola)

Join us to explore the moon-like, pockmarked landscape of Europe's highest active volcano. The day also includes a visit to Taormina, with its squares and flower-decked terraces, and the Teatro Greco.

Taormina (Taormina Mare resort only)

The proximity of these resorts to spectacular Taormina affords the opportunity for a half-day exploration of the town. Built on the slopes of Monte Tauro, the town's medieval palazzi, flower-strewn piazzi and Teatro Greco will be brought to life by our guide.

Mount Etna (Taormina Mare resort only)

Join us for a 'circular navigation' of Europe's most famous active volcano, with its strange, scarred landscape of solidified lava and ancient craters.

Syracuse (Taormina Mare resort only)

This ancient city was a vital link between mainland Greece and the Greek colonies of the western Mediterranean. Temples of Apollo and Athena were built on its island, and today the streets of the old town, with its harbour, Cattedrale and Archaeological museum, still echo with history.

Agrigento (all resorts)

We are very pleased with the trip. It gave us good insight into the history of Sicily. In particular we were very well looked after by the guide, Franco, whose deep knowledge of the history and geology of the island was invaluable
