One day trip to Sicily from Malta.

Taormina – Sicily’s prime tourist resort was discovered by the British aristocracy in the mid 1800s. This peaceful panoramic resort was colonized by the Greeks who built a theater in the Hellenic period – 4 B.C. The present Teatro Greco, altered by the Romans, is the venue for classical plays every summer. The main street, the elegant Corso Umberto, with its cafes, restaurants and boutiques is a bustle of nationalities.

Mt Etna – the largest and the most active volcano in Europe. The climb to the crater takes us through picturesque villages and ever changing landscape. The lower slopes of the volcano are extremely fertile with groves of oranges, lemons and other Mediterranean flora and of course vines which produce Sicily’s best wines. We go through forests of chestnut trees which gradually give way to oak, beech, birch and pine.
