Catania, Siracusa, Avola & Noto
This private tour can also be considered as a gastronomic joy. You will be collected from your desired location and our tour begins. Our first stop is Catania and a visit to the Fish Market is compulsory, a timeless sensation and a great atmosphere are what this market is all about. We will also see The Dome and the famous Bellini public gardens. We drive then to Siracusa, once arrived we visit the old city of Ortigia. The chance to visit The Dome, a light lunch or tour by boat around the bay, the Temple of Athena and a stroll around the shaded, sandy colored streets taking in the huge baroque building is a must. From Ortigia, we reach the Neapolis Archaeological Park, one of the most antique Greek cities in Sicily. You will have the occasion to visit the archaeological site, which contains the impressive remains of the ancient city and the still working Greek Theatre.
We move to Avola, this is where Nero D’avola the important Sicilian wine takes its name. We visit a local winery for tasting and sampling of local produce. Our final stage for the evening is Noto, you will be given the chance to stroll around this wonderful baroque town and here is where we will spend the night.
Modica, Ragusa Ibla & Palazzolo Acreide
After breakfast, we drive to Modica, as we travel over the 300 meters high Guerrieri Bridge we catch the first appearance of Modica, deep down below the gorge. Buildings and houses arise from the bottom of the gorge apparently piled one on top of the other. Modica is also the guardian of a 400-year tradition of Sicilian chocolate making. We will visit one of the oldest chocolate stores in Modica to experience their Aztec chocolate formula. Modica was sorely damaged in the 1693 earthquake and largely reconstruct in Sicilian Baroque style. It is divided into two main parts, “upper” Modica and “lower” Modica. Before leaving we will also visit the fantastic baroque church of San Giorgio. We visit a fantastic winery to dine and wine tasting, then our tour proceeds towards one of the best preserved old towns in Sicily, Ragusa Ibla.
Divided from Ragusa by a deep canyon this fabulous town is home to the UNESCO listed “Giardino Ibleo” a fantastic botanical garden with splendid visions and three churches. Our last stop of this tour will be Palazzolo Acreide, this fascinating laid-back town was built in the shade of the Greek resettlement Akrai. Walk around the quite baroque streets and visit the town’s central epicenter Piazza del Popolo and the small antique Greek amphitheater. On leaving Palazzolo we head back to your favored destination ending this fantastic journey.
