While Sicily is very much part of modern Italy, it retains its own identity in many ways. The island, the largest in the Mediterranean, absolutely warrants two weeks of its own during an Italy trip. Of course, most travelers don’t want to spend ...

A must do trip - pay the extra to go to the top its totally worth it for the amazing views. Be aware that even in April there is lots of snow and the wind is bitter so dress appropriately

Very enjoyable day. Santo was great. The islands were very beautiful. Special treat hearing the choir singing for Pasqua in cathedral on Stromboli.

Panarea can be called the first step toward Heaven; Now you know how it is - each with his heaven :)
An oasis of tranquility, discretion, beauty, in the midst of the sea ...
Do not miss a meal at Da Francesco! The food absolutely exquisite, tasteful, refined and the service outstanding. If you add the nice view to the sea, you have a wonderful day. Sorry I spent just a few hours ...
Stromboli, fascinated me in the middle of the night when he offered a fascinating eruption of the volcano, with lava like trying to color the sea in red..

Is "a must do" , this trip .

Enjoy the whole day. The highlight of the day was Mount Etna. We were so lucky to have had a beautiful and clear day. Would highly recommended this day tour to everyone. The tour company was excellent as they had organised the day before to pick us up from our hotel and take us closer to the pick up point for the tour.

A long day (13hrs), but worth the effort. The remains of the city of Arigentum, 4 temples plus parts of the city's walls, are impressive and the guide added to my (scant) knowledge of Greek temples. The mosaics at the Villa Romana are vast and fascinating in their portrayal of Roman life and interests. Do protect yourself against the sun: you will spend several hours with little shade. I was somewhat annoyed that I was not informed that entrance to the sites was an extra 25Eu, and would also advise you to take your own lunch. If you don't have a lot of time in Sicily, this tour will also provide scenic interest.

Great trip! Panarea is so beautiful and the little beach is worth a visit. On Stromboli we did the walking tour around the small town offered by our guide. After we had dinner on the boat and watched lava trickle down the side of the volcano!

Excellent day tour, make sure you pay the extra and book the tour to the top of Etna it is worth it and most people do it. Good informative guides and plenty of spare time for lunch and browsing.

Mt Etna is certainly not to be missed if you are travelling in the area. The tour itself was quite good: the guide was excellent - well informed of the science and history of Etna; and the tour to the higher elevation is worth it. The whole environment is very different from the first stop and it is kind of a shame to take the time to do the trip and not include that. Viatour's service was perfect - no glitches. Our name (and at least one other couple I saw) was not on the guide's list, but we had our receipt as instructed and he just penciled us in, and advised the driver for the second leg that we were aboard. I would use Viatour again: no add-on fees and everything is already checked out - so "one-stop shopping", hassel-free.

We chose to use the cable car and mini buses to get further up the volcano. The weather was very wet but after a short delay, it went ahead. It was well worth it and the rain added to the atmosphere. My only criticism is that it was too short and we did not have enough time to also explore at 2000 metres. I would have loved to visit the Silvestri craters! We left the site at 2pm and was back in Taormina for 3.30 pm. We could easily have stayed longer!

This is a LONG trip but it is well worth it. It was interesting to see the landscape in the centre of Sicily. I would never have expected to see these amazing temples outside of Greece. The villa was also described as having well preserved mosaics. This is an understatement! They were amazing as was the whole villa. You can really imagine how it was to live back in Roman times. We had a heavy thunderstorm on the return journey with fork lightning and huge rainbows!
