Sicily is the largest Italian island that, with six declared sites “UNESCO World Heritage, preserves cultural and natural treasures of inestimable beauty.
Here are ancient villages such as Catania, Cefalù, Milazzo and Erice, where noble buildings wedged between narrow alleys suddenly leave room for breathtaking views; you can go up Etna, a dormant volcano that with its lunar terrain and continuous puffs will never cease to fascinate; take a walk between the sea and the mountains at Capo Milazzo, overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea together with its suggestive lighthouse; meet the salt pans of Mothia, an enchanted and evocative place like few others with the unforgettable expanse of salt dotted with windmills; disembarks on the island of Vulcano, black as the land from which it originates; one remains open-mouthed before the perfection of the temple of Segesta; one feels protected by the towers that guard the Scopello tuna trap and its beautiful bay.

ETNA

We land in Catania and we are immediately at the foot of Etna.
And it is precisely there that we go as soon as we arrive, on the highest active volcano of the Eurasian plate, heading for Rifugio Sapienza.
From its height of 1920m we climb the steep side on foot; the soil here is soft and lunar, impregnated by the sulfur that comes out of the fumaroles and it is precisely the “breath of the giant” that makes everything so surreal.

CASTELLO DI MILAZZO

Milazzo (Messina) is a city located between two gulfs, that of Milazzo to the east and that of Patti to the west.
It rises at the beginning of the peninsula of Capo Milazzo which marks the closure of the first gulf overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea.
It’s time to get going again.
As night falls we arrive on the island of Vulcano.

VULCANO

Vulcano part of the Aeolian archipelago.
Its activity continues to feed phenomena such as thermal springs, mud and fumaroles.
First the two black sand beaches and the inevitable lighthouse.
Then, volcanic boulders and the black and sandy bottom.

CRATERE DI VULCANO

We arrive at the Great Crater of Vulcano from which it is possible to admire the entire archipelago in a single glance.
A fiery sunset gives way to the night, at times veiled by the smoke of the volcano.
Then the darkness.

RISERVA NATURALE DI VULCANO

A last walk in the desert plain of the uncontaminated Natural Park of the island, before heading to Cefalù.

CEFALÙ

We move to Cefalù, an ancient town part of the Madonie Park.
Located under the fortress of Cefalù that dominates it and together with the Duomo, recognized as a World Heritage Site, it characterizes its profile so as to make its view typical and very recognizable.

ERICE

Erice awaits us colored by classic majolica, with its narrow streets and little squares lined with churches and noble palaces.

SALINE

Last day, last stage.
Today we go to the Saline di Mozia along the famous salt road.
A long series of windmills leads us to the Stagnone nature reserve; a journey through mirrors of water, mountains of salt and thin strips of land.
