Stop At: Le Gole dell'Alcantara, Strada Provinciale 7, Castiglione di Sicilia, Sicily Italy

Several thousand years ago, the bed of the Alcantara river was blocked by a lava flow from Etna. Since the lava was cooled much more quickly by water, it crystallized in the form of columns. Over the following millennia, the river naturally eroded a canal through these columns: impressive gorges and ravines were born.
- visit the columns, bathe in the fresh water of the river, sunbathe on the rocks and relax in the Alcantara park. Your private English or French guide will describe this natural phenomenon, Etna and Sicily.


Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Cuba of Santa Domenica, Castiglione di Sicilia, Sicily Italy

Ancient rural chapel located near the natural reserve of the Alcantara Gorges within the village of Santa Domenica in the municipality of Castiglione di Sicilia. Erroneously, it was dated between the 7th and 8th centuries but a careful study has attributed the exact period between XE XI century historical period between the Norman domination and Islamic domination. It became a national monument in 1909. Monument located within a landscape and natural context of exciting beauty

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Villa Schiticchiu - B&B and Home Restaurant, Via Nazionale, 256, 98039 Taormina ME, Italy

- tasting of different types of red and white DOC wine, with local organic products - cheese, salami, ham, olives, bruschetta and caponata of dried tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil and fresh bread. All in an authentic Sicilian villa.

Duration: 2 hours
