Sicily Romantic Tour

The three stopovers

 
Ispica (Ragusa)

Southeastern Sicily

Accommodation Description

Torre Marabino 3 nights

For this part of the trip a very special place has been chosen, Torre Marabino. It is an ancient tower dating to the 16th century, nowadays an elegant hotel and at the same time an organic farm that combines the charm and comfort of modernity with the quiet life of the country.

To see nearby

  • The fascinating Baroque towns of Noto, Ragusa Ibla, Modica and Scicli.
  • Last but not least… you are very close to the coast for a dip in the sea.
Menfi (Agrigento)

Southern Sicily

Accommodation Description

Foresteria Planeta 2 nights

For your second stopover, we chose a well-known Sicilian wine producer built on a long agricultural tradition handed down from 1500 through 17 generations in the area between Sambuca di Sicilia and Menfi (Agrigento district). Here you will have the chance to visit one of the six cantines with various wines, including Nero d’Avola, Chardonnay, Merlot, Syrah, and Grecanico. And if you are curious to learn the traditional ancient Sicilian recipes, there is a cooking class waiting for you.

To see nearby

  • The sea is just 4 km away. The fine and wild sand of Porto Palo di Menfi won 17 Blue Flags, an international reward for seaside resorts that meet criteria relating to sustainable land management.
  • The archeological park of Selinunte and Segesta with its Greek theater.
  • The Valley of the Temples in Agrigento.
  • The Nature Reserve on the Belice river.
Zafferana Etnea (Catania)

The territory of Etna

Accommodation Description

Monaci delle Terre Nere 2 nights

This beautiful location will be your last stopover on Mount Etna, Italy's third most important wine-producing area. The volcano has become a small “Barolo” compared to the ‘Cote D’or’ of Burgundy because of the wine cultivation at high altitudes (up to 1500 meters above sea level). It produces wines similar to the best Burgundy Pinot Noir. Today Etna is considered the “Burgundy of the Mediterranean.” Cooking classes are also available, and we highly recommend saving some time for relaxation on this lovely boutique farm.

To see nearby

  • Catania, Acireale, Mount Etna.
