Best Excursions in Catania
Local Recommendations from our My Guide Sicily team
Sicily is far too interesting and exciting to spend your entire holiday at the beach. So head out and explore!
There are numerous possibilities to experience Sicily in all its facettes, and there are many people you will be happy to help you, show you around and tell you interesting stories about sites, towns and people. Nature fans are spoilt for choice - 77 nature and marine reserves, grottoes and parks are waiting for them. Sicily is paradise for architecturally and culturally interested visitors, starting with a Bronze Age village and a Phoenician settlement. There are guided visits on offer in theatres, museums, historical town centres, trips to Mount Etna in summer and winter, tours in natural parks, excursions by boat, SUV and coach. Not to forget the cruises on a yacht or gulet to the Aeolian Islands. You could join organized tours or book a private guide. A great way to get to know Taormina by night for example is the Taormina Walking Tour. There are the Treno del Barocco connecting Syracuse to Ragusa, the Fun Trains in Catania and Giardini-Naxos, the hop-on-hop-off sightseeing bus in Palermo and the Circumetnea. ENJOY!
