If you are thinking of a trip that allows you to combine culture, art and beautiful natural landscapes, accompanied by delicious cuisine, then visiting eastern Sicily will certainly be an excellent choice. Here is what we just cannot miss in Eastern Sicily in a travel itinerary lasting 4-5 days. |
Taormina, a pearl set on the coast. The main street is colorful, animated by street artists and full of pretty cafes to eat the typical delicacies of this land. On the coast in front of Taormina we find a protected nature reserve, Isola Bella, an islet surrounded by crystal clear water. Not far from Taormina, lovers of natural landscapes should visit the Alcantara gorges. It is a canyon carved into the lava rock by the water.
Catania is one of the largest cities in the region and has one of the most beautiful historic centers in Italy. The Cathedral of Sant’Agata testifies to the respect and attachment of the citizens of Catania towards the patron saint of the city. The fish market is the most colorful and folkloric thing there can be. Acireale is a marvelous preserved Baroque city near Catania. It is famous for its carnival, characterized by a folklore that makes it one of the most renowned in Sicily.
Syracuse is certainly one of the cities that offer more from a historical point of view. The island of Ortigia is the oldest part of the city. It is characterized by narrow streets and alleys full of small typical shops. Very characteristic are the Latomie, natural stone quarries that were used as prisons.
An excursion to Etna is another experience not to be missed. It is an active volcano with spectacular lava eruptions, which can be admired up close accompanied by guides.
To reach any of these splendid locations it is possible to book transfers to and from Catania airport and between the various locations on Catania Airport Taxi.
