Explore the mythological side of Sicily and be enchanted by the coast where old legends and stunning views blend perfectly.

Catania, “six times destroyed and six times reborn”, is a town full of history, art and life. You will surely be raptured by the lovely blend of the Ancient Greek with the Sicilian Baroque style. Do not miss a visit to the Basilica of Sant’Agata and Castello Ursino.

Legend says that those black rocks rising out of the sea known as the Cyclops Riviera, very peculiar in this area, were thrown by Cyclop Poliphemus in a desperate attempt to stop Odysseus from escaping. You will enjoy this scenic drive and visit the small towns of Aci Trezza, Aci Catena and Acireale. Plus, make sure to have a taste of the local granita di limone!

Where and how will I find the driver?

Your driver will be waiting for you at the confirmed pickup location (your arrival train track, at the airport arrival exit gate, at your accommodation) holding a sign with your name written on it.

What should I wear if I want to visit some religious sites?

If you intend to visit religious sites, please have knees and shoulders covered (both men and women).

Enjoyed our day seeing the sights of Sicily-Cyclops, Catania and Acireale-picturesque coastline, an amazing church were amongst the highlights.Was great not be in crowded touristy spots. Our guide was informative and spoke fluent English, we were collected on time at the dock. Would highly recommend if you’d like to get away from the crowd if docke$ in Messina for the day.
