Meals - Breakfast & Lunch

Day 5 - Ragusa - Noto - Syracuse
Sicily is famous for its sweets, many of which are made from almonds grown on the island. Today you'll have a chance to enjoy this centuries-old tradition as we pay a visit to an almond farm and enjoy a light lunch. Afterwards, we'll depart for beautiful Syracuse. Meals - Breakfast & Lunch

Day 6 - Syracuse
Seaside Syracuse, which rivalled Athens as the most important city of ancient Greece, awaits on your free day.

Day 7 - Syracuse - Mount Etna - Carruba

Today, it's time to take a closer look at Mount Etna, a slumbering giant that towers over the surrounding landscape. Then, we'll move on to a local farm for a local lunch and wine tasting before journeying to Carruba, where we'll spend the next two nights. Meals - Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
