South-East Sicily

South East Sicily

With an absolute treasure trove of art and architecture, you could easily spend an entire fortnight in south east Sicily. Venture to the north of the Noto Valley and you reach the astonishing Villa Romana del Casale, and to the east, the melting pot of culture that is Siracusa.

Then there are fabulous sandy beaches, the Vendicari nature reserve, vineyards that produce some exceptional quality wine, world-famous Modican chocolate and even a couple of golf courses thrown in for good measure.

Explore south east Sicily the easy way on a private excursion that incorporates the UNESCO towns of Noto, Modica and Ragusa and the surrounding countryside. A short stay by the beach in Taormina or on one of the Aeolian Islands is a great way to wind down after a busy few days of sightseeing.
