This tour gives you access to some incredible locations. Spend 3 nights in an authentic private palazzo in Noto, now a hotel with an amazing view over the Ducezio Palazzo. Then spend two nights in a 17th century palace right on the Etna, with pool, beautiful gardens, and a private winery.

If that’s not enough there is also a breathtaking view over the volcano! The last two nights will be at a boutique hotel in Syracuse with a private beach, just 2 minutes walk away from Ortigia. This tour includes 3 wineries, one right on the Etna. There is also olive oil tasting, a 4X4 drive on the Etna volcano, and not to forget the sea: an outing on a 16 meter Menorchina motor boat.
