Let’s try to imagine a journey of fantasy? The benefit? It’s cheap, immediate, without limits. We could find ourselves near Etna’s lava flow, walking in the nice Taormina, looking the Valle dei Templi in Agrigento or The Ear of Dionysius in Siracusa.These, as many others, are the stops of the 8days tour we prepared for let you know or discover again our beautiful island. Fantasy can go over and you can tickle your palate with one of the famous Sicilian ice-cream, with a refreshing almond’s granita or Modica’s chocolate. We invite to transform this fantasy in reality, joining the regular departures of our “Sicilian Secrets” tour which is available until October. Waiting for your tour, we will give you historical, cultural and wine-and-food news about Sicily, with an ideal journey that starts from Catania.
Catania is the Sicily’s dynamic fulcrum: it has an intense nightlife and it is known abroad as one of the most popular European cities for entertainment. The historical city centre is very popular, especially the zone among Piazza Duomo, Piazza Università, Piazza Teatro Massimo where the majority of crowded nightclubs and pubs are placed. In Catania there are artistic treasures, popular tradition and amazing views: it’s impossible not to quote the Baroque style that characterised all the city, declared Unesco World Heritage.
Etna, here called “’a muntagna”, is the guardian of Catania beautiful coast, known as Riviera dei Ciclopi, recalling mythological legends about Ulysses and Polypheme.
Let’s try the emotion of climbing a volcano in activity, with its particular lunar and magic atmosphere or being charmed by red sunset on lava’s view. Everything under the look of an immense sea that we hardly forget.
Finally we left a Catanese recipe, sarde a beccafico, you can find in the recipe’s book we usually give to our customers.
