For a more memorable experience in Sicily We offer a private Mercedes vehicle and a Personal English speaking driver . Your personal driver will be waiting for you at your port of arrival , holding a sign with your name on it.
Your first visit will be of the magnificent Baroque central square of Catania, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Symbol of the city is the lava-stone fountain surmounted by an elephant with an obelisk on its back, known as ‘Liotru’, and thought to protect the city from disasters. In front of the fountain is the cathedral dedicated to St.Agatha , the patron saint, who was martyred at the age of 13 in 251 AD. In the interior is the tomb of the composer Vincenzo Bellini. On the other side of the square is the famous Pescheria, the noisy, colourful fish market, held every morning except Sunday.
After free time for shopping and exploring a short drive along the coast will bring you to the Cyclops Riviera, lava rocks said to have been thrown by the blinded Cyclops Polyphemus at Ulysses, in front of the charming fishing villages of Acicastello and Acitrezza. At the end of your day tour, you will be returned to your ship
