Walking and learning about art and admiring nature and landscapes will make you fall in love with Sicily. Showing real Sicilian art to kids is really rewarding.
There are many theoretical lessons explaining what Baroque style is, however they are not comparable to a visit to the Cathedral in Noto. Immediately, geology becomes easier in front of Mount Etna.
Let’s begin our tour with the echo of Homer’s Odyssey and reach Scylla and Charybdis: the strong currents and whirlpools in these waters illustrate one of the greatest biodiversity assets in the Mediterranean.
Visiting the Aeolian Islands is a unique experience according to mythology; it is the house of Aeolus, the god of the winds. The Archaeological Museum in Lipari teaches about cultures and civilizations that colonized these places. Another nice stop is in Vulcano and in Stromboli, where the active volcano is.
Let’s go back to the coast and head to Taormina. From its beautiful location, we will have a spectacular view on the Ionian Sea and the volcano Etna. The Greek Theatre is the most famous monument: the Greeks chose a scenic headland as the setting for musical and dramatic performances. From there, we will have a magnificent view of Calabria, the Sicilian Ionian coast, and Etna mountain in the background. Taormina Arte (in June) takes place there every year. Let’s also take a nice long walk on Corso Umberto to get to a very suggestive panoramic terrace.
