A limited number of flight seats and rooms in a 4-star coastal resort hotel during the favoured season in Sicily have become available for a 7-night stay only
Giardini Naxos - 7 nights
Relax or explore independently during a week in a 4-star hotel on a bay in Taormina’s coastal resort area of Giardini Naxos. Sicily is a treasure trove of history, natural beauty and cultural curiosities. Located off the southern tip of the boot of Italy, it is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. The island has its own dialect, which draws on Greek, Catalan, French, Arabic and Spanish, reflecting its fascinating history. Since the earliest inhabitants, Sicily has been occupied, invaded and settled dozens of times. Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Saracens and the Spanish have all played a role in the island’s history and have bequeathed splendid examples of their civilizations still visible today.
The island is a continuation of the chain of the Apennines with the rugged countryside dominated by Mount Etna, the the largest active volcano in Europe. The Mediterranean vegetation has been influenced by volcanic eruptions, climate and lava to create a unique environment. Picturesque Taormina, less than 5km. from Giardini Taormina is an immensely picturesque resort which also benefits from a scenically captivating coastline and an elevated position overlooking the sea on the slopes of Mount Tauro. The attractive narrow streets and dramatically situated Greco-Roman theatre encourages independent exploration. Naxos is spectacularly sited overlooking the coastline and Mount Etna, with narrow atmospheric streets and a fine Greco-Roman theatre.
