Amazing archaeological sites, breath-taking panoramas, enchanting beaches and fascinating towns.
A journey into Sicily is more than an itinerary leading to the discovery of unbelievable wonders, it is a real journey into human culture, back to its origin. Some people choose to spend their vacation following in the footsteps of Goethe or basing their destinations on the writings of Di Lampedusa (and his ”The Leopard”) or Guy de Maupassant, but the true Sicily is not to be sought in the pages of a book. So, if you’re wondering where to go, we have collected some tips and suggestions about part of the biggest island in the Mediterranean, the part closest to us, that is, the eastern area of the Val di Noto and its surroundings.
Here, expect majestic, breathtaking landscapes, stunning beaches bathed by crystalline waters, a still-active volcano, particularly luxuriant vegetation, Baroque towns of ancestral charm, ancient monuments and delectable cuisine, renowned throughout the world, which you can sample conveniently in the Ristorante Principe di Belludia, headed by award-winning chef Ciccio Sultano, the “cherry on the pie” of our resort.
