The Catamaran departs from Marsa Harbour and you can either make your own way or book transfers. All passengers must arrive at the passenger terminal at least 1 hour before departure. Click on GETTING TO THE PORT below for details.
On arrival at the port, you will check-in and board the catamaran. The crossing is estimated to take 1 hour 45 minutes. The Catamaran is equipped with restrooms, a very good cafeteria serving a variety of hot or cold snacks/beverages, and a small boutique/gift shop.

On arrival in Pozzallo you will be directed to your tour coach for the start of your Sicily tour. Our tour takes the eastern route before arriving at the first stop which is Mount Etna.
On the way to Etna we include a stop so you can sample some typical Sicilian delicacies, including wines, almond sweets and honey, this is a shortstop but it does give you an opportunity to purchase some genuine local specialities. 

The drive up the Mount Etna mountain slopes takes us through picturesque villages and an ever-changing landscape. The lower slopes of the volcano are extremely fertile with groves of oranges, lemons and other Mediterranean flora and of course vines that produce Sicily's best wines. We go through forests of chestnut trees which gradually give way to oak, beech, birch and pine. During our tour of Mount Etna, we visit the Sylvester Craters.

Our visit to Mount Etna will take you to 2000 metres above sea level, stopping at Silvester Craters. If you would like to visit the peak of the mountain and there is enough time to do this (you must check with your guide first) optional cable car and 4x4 truck/jeep tours are available, cost varies from €30 to €80 per person depending on which option you decide to take.

Our next stop includes a visit to the one of Sicily's most famous towns, Syracuse. Syracuse has come to epitomize Greek culture in Sicily, Magna Grecia. On arrival stroll through the old part of Ortygia Island, the heart of the city centre. Here you can visit the duomo a converted Greek temple and one of the oldest places of worship worldwide and equally as unique. End your tour with time to visit a local cafeteria and enjoy some of the local sweets, cannoli or locally made ice cream...simply divine!

The order in which we visit the locations may change as they are mentioned above.

We return back to the port of Pozzallo to board the Catamaran for our departure (which is scheduled at 2130hrs on Thursday, 2030hrs on Sunday) back to Malta.
