Tour Sicily and Aeolian Islands

Local trattorias, wineries and volcanic islands where time has stood still

Tour Sicily and Aeolian Islands

Natural spectacle and Greek heritage

Descend to the far south of Italy for a discovery of Sicily and the Aeolian Islands. Surrender to the Italian rhythm of life during a visit to a winery and dinners in local trattorias. Visit the Temple Valley, explore the lava fields of Mount Etna, and take a body rafting excursion into the Alcantara Gorge. Once on the Aeolian Islands, the 'seven sisters of the Mediterranean', time seems to have stood still. Sail between the islands of Lipari and Salina to visit the pumice quarries and hear Stromboli's fire waterfalls hissing into the sea. After all this natural spectacle, you will also pick up a piece of 'La Dolce Vita' and the rich culture and history in mundian Taormina.

  • We'll take you off the beaten path for a unique experience of the lava fields and past ancient craters of Mount Etna.

  • Stay in a 19th century villa on the slopes of Mount Etna and dine on the terrace with ingredients from its own garden.
