Sicily and its wonders between Art, Culture and Trekking
Starting from Catania, a city unique for its lava stone buildings and its lively nightlife, the journey winds through the unmissable stages of Sicily, allowing a real immersion in the treasures of the island. Syracuse, once the capital of Magna Graecia, was defined by Cicero as “the most beautiful of Greek cities” and the richness of its heritage has earned it inscription among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. A visit to its Archaeological Park is a real plunge into antiquity, while strolling in Ortigia gives a sublime moment thanks to the beauty of its promenade, the fascinating Arethusa fountain and the dazzling white of the Cathedral square that reflects the light of a tireless sun here. Noto, the Baroque capital, owes its magnificence to the fact that it was the capital of the Val di Noto during the Kingdom of the two Sicilies. Showing greatness and stylistic abundance is the Cathedral and the same redundancy can be seen in the decorations of the noble palaces of the course and the surrounding streets. Modica is also called “stone garden” for the compactness of the countless baroque churches that inhabit the historic center, a maze of narrow streets that gives glimpses of postcard views. The Valley of the Temples of Agrigento is an unmissable stop on any trip to Sicily, where twelve Doric temples show themselves in all their beauty on a hill overlooking the coast.
