Example Itinerary

Day 1-3

SCIACCA, Italy

  • Visit an outdoor art gallery carved into stone
  • Explore the Valley of the Temples, a World Heritage site dedicated to Zeus and other Greek Gods

Sicily’s greatest resort neighbours the sweet fisherman town of Sciacca, beautifully set on the Mediterranean sea.

Fly into Palermo and begin by driving south to Sciacca to stay at the Verdura Resort for two nights. As a generously sized and luxurious hotel, it offers impressive bedroom views of the Mediteranean, white-sandy beaches, spa, tennis and golf. Escape the hotel to visit the Valley of the Temples, only 50km from the hotel. Let this World Heritage Site captivate you with its preserved temples dedicated to Greek gods, and unearth the most profound evidence of Sicily’s’ ancient and classical culture. A visit to Sciacca is an outstanding destination for a day trip, especially if you love creating ceramics.

Day 3-6

SYRACUSE, Italy

  • Let your skipper take you to secluded beaches on your private sail boat
  • Visit an ancient Greek limestone cave shaped like an ear

Syracuse is famous for its ancient ruins right on the coast; enjoy an espresso in a baroque piazza or a dip in the sea.

Snake across to the eastern side of the island and spend three nights at the Donna Coraly boutique hotel, a romantic hotel with five beautiful and elegant suites in the centre of a historical estate, with unspoiled nature, orange and olive groves and a swimming pool. Organise a Sicilian cooking class and prepare a menu using seasonal produce from the garden and traditional local flavours. Dip into the waters with an exclusive experience on a small sail boat. Within easy reach of the hotel, explore the baroque towns of Noto, Syracuse, Modica and Ragusa. Alternatively, enjoy a relaxing day on the beach.

Day 6-9

TAORMINA, Italy

  • Explore the black-sand beaches, secretive coves and steaming volcano and you hop around the Aeolian Islands
  • See a play in an open-air amphitheatre under the sunset

A ceramicist’s paradise in the shadow of Mount Etna, Taormina is the ultimate Sicilian destination in a nutshell.

Travel north along the east coast to the historical and coastal town Taormina and spend three nights at the Belmond Villa Sant Andrea. Relax at an intimate and immaculate hotel with style and class, set on a pale sandy beach surrounded by sub-tropical gardens. Explore the surrounding beauty of this hilltop and seaside town by foot; stroll along the cobbled streets and uncover why it’s famous for ceramics. For theatre lovers, we can supply tickets to sunset performances at the amphitheatre. For walkers, the hotel is in reach of hiking up the volcano Mount Etna. For water babies, boats are available to whisk you off to nearby islands for full-day tours.

The Fishers

Our family are hooked on Italy and Molly’s passion and knowledge means she keeps finding us something new. The latest trip was in the Dolomites – Rosa Alpina is the dream. Officially our favourite hotel ever. We’re going to Puglia next but we have to wait until next year for that!
