Day 1

WELCOME TO CATANIA | Just a short drive from Catania and a stroll from the sea in the middle
of a nature reserve. With a stunning view of Mount Etna, a swimming pool, the estate surrounding
the country house is planted with eco-sustainable orange groves: a relaxing paradise!

In the afternoon you can go for a relaxing bike ride: the trip moves at an easy pace -even for the little ones – and helps them discover the UNESCO world heritage sites of Catania in a fun way… BY BIKE OF COURSE! And in the meantime, the big ones will get to know countless anecdotes – as well as discover delicious Sicilian street food.

Day 2

MOUNT ETNA EXPERIENCE | This is something that will stick in your mind for a long, long time because you’re going on a jeep ride to up Mount Etna! The volcano is still active, so you can see how lava moves, the mount’s craters and actually go inside its caves like real explorers, with a local guide by your side, who will tell you incredible stories about Mount
Etna’s history.

Day 3

ACITREZZA WATER ADVENTURES | Acitrezza is an old fishing village, rich in history and traditions. You will spend your time enjoying its beautiful seashore: crystal clear water and a wide range of activities you can do all together! Canoeing, paddle boarding, kayaking, windsurfing…all you have to do is put your sunglasses on and have fun with your children. It’s a hard life!!!

Day 4

WELCOME TO SIRACUSA | Let’s move on to the next stage of your travel experience: Siracusa is impressive, majestic and intriguing. A family run agritourism in a nature reserve area is the perfect place where you can recharge your batteries surrounded by the sounds of the Sicilian countryside. The family who hosts you will make you feel totally at home. Enjoy real Sicilian hospitality

Day 5

EXPLORING IN SIRACUSA & “PUPI THEATRE” | A children expert local guide will love to show you the best places and to let you live the amazing atmosphere of the city centre, Ortigia, in an easy and fun way. You will be enraptured by the street market, full of colours and sounds: you won’t leave this place without colorful memories.

Pupi Theater and puppet workshop Teatro dei Pupi is not only a form of art: it is a dream, an ever ending story that takes shape in these large puppets. You will all be enchanted by this experience!

Day 6

EXPLORING IN MARZAMEMI & NOTO | What a great day exploring the town of Noto – of course, you’ll all taste some granita to start the day. Then let’s explore the former tuna fishing village of Marzamemi.

Day 7

A VISIT TO MODICA, THEN STRAIGHT TO AGRIGENTO | On your way to Agrigento, we should add a must-see stop that will blow your mind (and your mouth): MODICA! Just think of the delicious smell of the chocolate permeating the air: you will learn not only how to make a delicious chocolate bar (flavour it as you like) the stories, the curious anecdotes and the legends.

Then you will reach your accommodation just outside Agrigento. A lovely family-run B&B located
in a picturesque quiet and narrow street close to a beautiful little square in the very heart of the city. The perfect position to explore the amazing beauty of Agrigento and close to
everything you may need!

Day 8

EXPLORING IN THE VALLEY OF THE TEMPLES | You can’t say you have visited Agrigento unless you’ve seen the UNESCO site of the Valley of the Temples. We have a focus on your kids and this experience is designed specifically for them! They will have fun as you all explore the ancient past of this archaeological site together.

Day 9

AN AUTHENTIC SICILIAN VILLAGE EXPERIENCE | Are you ready for the fireworks? The last stop of your Sicilian Discovery takes you straight to the heart of the region, away from the city and to the more authentic side of the Island: the village where time stood still.

being made.
