We will also make a stop at Caltagirone, considered as the Christmas crib capital of Sicily due to the amount of cribs one finds on display. This town is also famous for its artisanal ceramics.

Today we visit Mount Etna, one of Sicily’s natural beauty landmarks and Europe’s highest active volcano. We will view the volcano craters, the volcanic ash landscape and also admire the spectacular scenery spreading far over the Calabria coast. We visit the mountain village of Zafferana where we will have the opportunity to sit-in on a honey tasting demonstration and sample the different types of local honey. Dinner at the hotel.
Saturday 02 January
Breakfast followed by check-out. We will then visit Savoca, one of the most beautiful villages in Sicily. Savoca has plenty of charms of its own, but the main attraction is the village’s connection with Francis Ford Coppola’s film ‘The Godfather’. Scenes for this movie were shot at Bar Vitelli, on the village’s little square. We close off this tour by a visit to the charming hillside town of Taormina with its many elegant buildings and shops.

We enjoyed an amazing trip in Turin to watch Juve vs Napoli and Juve vs Lyon. Thumbs up for a very well organised tour. Our tour leader Peter Paul Gauci had even to deal with a massive six hour delay by Airmalta !! Will travel again with you surely.
