8 DAYS IN CATANIA AND MOUNT ETNA

Catania will welcome you with its colourful streets!

We’ve got loads of family-centred activities to let all the family having fun while exploring the city: what about tasting the incredible Sicilian street food, or enjoying a family-friendly workshop with the papier-mache in the old town? We thought for your family a lot of daily experiences where you can explore and discover Catania and its surrounding while your children could learn about a different culture and Sicilian everlasting traditions. But holidays mean relax too so what do you think about spending an amazing day on the wonderful beach of Acitrezza, just enjoying the sea and doing one of the fun activities we could offer you? Your kids will love it and we bet you as well!

And we haven’t yet mentioned the incredible adventures on Mount Etna, the first active volcano of Europe! A family-centred experience specifically made for your needs because no mountain could stop you to enjoy an easy trekking and a jeep ride along the volcano!

We choose all the accommodations specifically thinking to your need as a parent: immersed when possible in the natural environment and distant from the chaos. And near to everything you should need (from the bakeries to the pharmacies), to let enjoy your Travel Experience at its best. And remember: the Local Jack (your guide during the entire holiday), will be there for you every time you should have any request or any doubt: just ask him/her!

Fun by the ton awaits your entire family!

Wander through the streets and dishes of Catania

Let’s go for a walk, but without hurry: the trip moves at a good pace even for the little ones and helps them discover the UNESCO world heritage sites of Catania with a lot of fun. And in the meantime, the big ones come to know countless anecdotes – as well as the delicious Sicilian street food.
