Taormina: Sicily’s prime tourist resort was discovered
by the British aristocracy in the mid 1800s. Facing
Etna and the blue Mediterranean, this peaceful
panoramic resort, 206m above sea level was
colonized by the Greeks who built a theatre in the
Hellenic period – 4B.C. The present Teatro Greco,
altered by the Romans, is the venue for classical plays
every summer. The main street, the elegant Corso
Umberto, with its cafés, restaurants and boutiques is a
bustle of nationalities.
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.
