MOUNT ETNA & MODICA

MODICA

This proud, prosperous and ancient city is one of Sicily's baroque gems. The main street "Il Corso" is a typical Italian meeting place with cafés and majestic buildings. The church of San Giorgio is an impressive monument, built after the earthquake of 1693, surrounded by a flight of 250 steps to further enhance the scenic beauty of its fine façade.

MT ETNA

The largest and most active volcano in Europe. The climb to the crater takes us through picturesque villages and an ever-changing landscape. The lower slopes of the volcano are extremely fertile with groves of oranges, lemons and other Mediterranean flora and of course vines which produce Sicily's best wines. We go through forests of chestnut trees which gradually give way to oak, beech, birch and pine.

Syracuse

Syracuse is notable for its rich Greek history, culture, amphitheatres, architecture and as the birthplace of the preeminent mathematician and engineer Archimedes.  This 2,700-year-old city played a key role in ancient times, when it was one of the major powers of the Mediterranean world. Syracuse is located in the southeast corner of the island of Sicily, next to the Gulf of Syracuse beside the Ionian Sea.


It has come to epitomize Greek culture in Sicily, Magna Grecia.  The Duomo, in the old city Ortigia, is a converted Greek temple, one of the oldest places of worship worldwide and equally as unique.
