In fact, Malta has something for the temple lover, there are also Roman catacombs, medieval towns, and stunning architecture. If that wasn’t exciting enough, Sicily turns on its charm as it is one of Italy’s largest islands and one that has all the trappings of a whimsical vacation far from the crowds.

    Touchdown Malta

    Arrive at Malta Airport and proceed to Sliema to check into the hotel. Sliema, which means 'peace, comfort', was once a quiet fishing village on the peninsula across Marsamxett Harbour from Valletta. Located on the northeast coast of Malta, Sliema is now one of Malta's most popular coastal resorts and a centre for shopping, restaurants and café life thus becoming a major commercial and residential area, home to several of Malta's most modern hotels. Sliema and the coastline up to neighbouring St. Julians constitute Malta's main coastal resort, ringed with modern apartment blocks overlooking fantastic sea views.Take rest and later proceed for welcome dinner.

    Plan the Day –Your Way

    Walk through the town ad explore the Island on your own this day. The day is free for leisure. Here in Malta you can span the millennia with an astonishing array of things to discover. And wherever you go, the scenery and architecture provide a spectacular backdrop. The colours are striking, honey-coloured stone against the deepest of Mediterranean blues.

    Catania And Around

    After the breakfast at the hotel, depart to Syracuse for the guided tour. The district of Neapolis, literally meaning the ‘new town’, is one of the most evocative quarters claiming the theatre, the Ear of Dionysius and the Latomia del Paradiso within its boundaries (entrance included in the Archaeological Park). We then visit many important sights deserving a visit: Fonte Aretusa which played a significant part in persuading the first group of colonists to settle here in Antiquity and Piazza Duomo cathedral (entrance included). Continue to Noto which is part of the so called Sicily’s Baroque Triangle, with its fine buildings of the early eighteenth century considered among the main masterpieces of this era. Overnight in Catania

  • Day 7

    Travel Through Time

    After the breakfast at the hotel depart to Taormina. Perched on a rocky spur at about 200m height, Taormina occupies a fabulous position, overlooking the sea and right opposite Etna volcano. We visit the main sights: Greek Theatre (entrance included), Piazza Vittorio Emanuele, Palazzo Corvaja, Naumachie, Piazza Duomo, Piazza IX Aprile. Perched precariously on a mountaintop above the community of Taormina on the eastern shores of Sicily is the beautiful medieval village of Castelmola where we visit. Later proceed to Savoca- A world away from the touristy bustle of over-developed Taormina just down the coast, Savoca offers a chance to breathe deeply and see what an unspoiled Sicilian hill village can be. Overnight in Catania

    4*
  • Day 8

    About Ragusa Ibla

    After the breakfast at the hotel depart to Ragusa. The town is part of the Val di Noto UNESCO Heritage site and 18 of its buildings are protected by UNESCO patronage. One of the most fascinating towns in Sicily, Ragusa has caused many a visitor’s jaw to drop as they first set eyes on the lower part of the town. Visit Cathedral of St. George and Piazza Polo (entrance included). Overnight in Catania.

  • What is the best time to travel to Europe

    It depends!
  • What does twin share price mean?

    Twin share price is the price mentioned against a package and it refers to the cost per head for a double sharing accommodation. If you'd like to upgrade to Single Occupancy, please select this at the time of checkout
  • Regarding the hotels, what does OR SIMILAR refer to?

    OR SIMILAR means that the hotel booked might be different from the hotel mentioned in the itinerary. 90% of the time we book the hotel that’s mentioned, but under few situations it might differ due to on-the-ground factors. So we pick an alternate hotel, but always in the same class and area of the city.
  • Why don't you include flights in the Package cost?

    Since our wanderers are located a variety of locations in India and outside India - it is impossible to include flights in the trip cost.
