Breakfast followed by a full day excursion. We visit the Sicilia Outlet Village where we will be able to dive into Sicily’s best fashion deals with discounts of up to 70% on branded items. 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. Compulsory New Year’s Eve dinner at the hotel (extra).

Friday 01 January

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. Transfer by private coach to the airport for our flight back to Malta which arrives at 11.10pm.
