Friday | Meet at the airport at 03.45 am for our KM Malta Airlines flight to Catania departing at 05.45 am. Upon arrival we shall stop for a coffee break than visit one of the shopping centres such as Centro Sicilia or Porte di Catania. After enough time we then drive to Siracusa to visit the quaint island of Ortigia, with its cobblestoned streets and appreciate the magnificent baroque architecture. In the evening we shall transfer to our 3* hotel, the Ibis Styles Catania Acireale (or similar) for check-in.   

Saturday | Breakfast followed by a full day excursion. Transfer to the famous gorges and beautiful botanical gardens at the Gole dell’ Alcantara (entrance extra) which are the main naturalistic and tourist attraction of the Alcantara Valley. In the afternoon we then visit Mount Etna, one of Sicily’s natural beauty landmarks and Europe’s highest active volcano. We view the volcano craters, the volcanic ash landscape and admire the spectacular scenery spreading far over the Calabria coast. We shall also visit the mountain village of Zafferana where we could sit-in for a honey tasting demonstration and sample the different types of local honey.

Sunday | Breakfast followed by check-out.  Today we visit Savoca, one of the most beautiful villages in Sicily. Savoca has plenty of charms of its own, but the main attraction is the village’s connection with Francis Ford Coppola’s film ‘The Godfather’. Scenes for this movie were shot at Bar Vitelli, on the village’s little square.  This will be followed by a visit to the charming hillside town of Taormina with its many elegant buildings and shops. Our private coach will then take us to the airport for our flight back to Malta which departs Catania at 11.50pm, landing at 00.35am.
