Times

Catamaran departs Malta at 0630hrs
Catamaran returns to Malta at 2215hrs (2115hrs on Sunday)

You must allow time to get to/from the port, see Optional transfers to/from port above.
On arrival at the port, you will check-in and board the catamaran. The crossing is estimated to take 90 minutes, however, this can be slightly longer on occasions, depending on weather conditions. 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 tours take the eastern route passing Noto, Syracusa and Catania en route before arriving at Mount Etna, Europe's most active volcano.

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 which 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.

NOTE
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 €60 per person depending on which option you decide to take.

 
Our next stop includes a visit to the Baroque city of Modica to enjoy some time in the city centre and the popular "Il Corso". Modica once so important as to constitute a kingdom within the kingdom, is today a prosperous town still dependent on its traditional agricultural economy. The beautiful flight of steps leading to the main entrance and the statues representing the twelve apostles are the main features of S. Pietro's church. The main street or "Corso", with its mixture of magnificent buildings, modern shops and alfresco cafes. It is a thriving town centre.
 
We return to the port of Pozzallo to board the Catamaran for our departure (which is scheduled at 2030hrs/1930hrs on Sunday) back to Malta.

If you have booked transport from the port it will be waiting for you on arrival in Malta to return you to your hotel/drop off point.
