Program proposal for your trip to Sicily
The excursion program can be customized
You just don’t do anything. That is at least the meaning of “Dolce Far Niente”. But if it tingles you, then go on to the golf course. Reserve a tee time with the concierge and leave at least 1 hour in advance to find it with GPS. Otherwise you will have the sea and the beach, a nice bar, a good restaurant and the spa.
Today it is getting dusty. Your guide picks you up with a 4 Wheel Drive at the hotel and it goes up to Mount Etna. You will learn a lot about the volcano, geology, fauna and flora. You will get a sense of the eerie force of nature and the danger of destruction to which we are powerlessly at the mercy of in an emergency. Stunning views, extinguished craters, buried buildings and wonderful nature. All this awaits you and a typical and tasty lunch at an altitude of 2000 m.
You shape this day yourself. In the meantime, you have become familiar with the hotel and its facilities. You know the way to the golf course. If not, it’s about time. Reserve play off time. If you are not interested in golf and want to take a trip, then maybe to Catania early to the fish market.
you meet in Taormina your German-speaking guide. You can visit the Greek Theatre and the Cathedral. You can enjoy magnificent views of the city, the bay and the volcano, which is ubiquitous.
Away from tourism, head to Savoca to Cappucin Monastery and then to the bar from the movie “The Godfather” with Marlon Brando.
Back to Taormina where you will visit one of the most exciting private villas in Sicily. Casa Cusani.
Time again for the Dolce Far Niente or Golf.
Barone di Villagrande is awaiting you in his winery at an altitude of 650 metres, on the slope of Mount Etna. Guests can visit the wine cellar and enjoy a 4-course lunch accompanied by 5 different wines.
After breakfast you return to the airport with the rental car. The program ends and you fly home with many beautiful memories. Have you fallen in love with Sicily? Then you will be like everyone and you will definitely be back soon.
