Activities - What you should see in Sicily
If you want to stay a little bit away from the hustle and bustle of the city, you should visit Cefalù. Cefalù is a little fishing village and a great place to visit the old harbour or to sunbathe on the beach. Cefalù has become a chic and extremely popular coastal town in recent years. If you want to avoid a lot of people, you should plan the timing of your visit here well. In Cefalù, you should definitely visit the Norman cathedral and the "Rock of Cefalù", La rocca di Cefalù. But a walk through the small streets of Cefalù is also a great way to discover the city.
The Etna volcano is another feature of Sicily that you should not miss. If you want to see it from afar, you should choose the towns of Taormina or Catania for this. Stay in one of our comfortable luxury hotels in Taormina. You can also take tours to Mount Etna from these cities. There are several guided tours from which you can choose the one that suits you - whether on foot or as a 4x4 vehicle tour, there are many ways to visit the impressive volcano.
Catania, located near the volcano, is the second largest city in Sicily. Here you should definitely visit the Piazza del Duomo, with the "Fontana dell' Elefante". The city is also known for its rich selection of churches. A fish market in the city centre and various restaurants with fresh fish on the menu are also great places to visit. In Catania, we have a selected number of stylish hotels and quiet holiday apartments for you to choose from.
The city of Siracusa is also ideal for a trip. Stay here in a cosy holiday flat or a nice bed & breakfast. In Siracusa you should visit the rich archaeological heritage of the city. There is a Greek theatre from the time when Greek settlers lived on the island, where a Greek theatre festival is still held every year. You can also take a walk around the island of Ortigia. The island has other historical sights in the city of Siracusa. A wide variety of architectural styles can be admired here - from Greek, Roman or medieval Norman styles, everything can be found here.
The pretty town of Modica should also be included in a visit. It offers many different things to do: Stroll through the winding alleys and over the picturesque squares of the old town or enjoy the delicious local cuisine. And for a sweet treat, head to the local chocolate museum. Modica is famous for its traditional chocolate. In the museum you can learn more about the history and preparation of chocolate. The beautiful beaches in the area should not be underestimated either. For your visit to Modica, you can find a chic holiday home or a rustic country hotel nearby.
