From the temple to the beach
Sicily | The Italian Mediterranean island Sicily does not only offer summer, sun and lovely beaches but also many cultural highlights. A compulsory point on each itinerary for a Sicily vacation are the countless testimonies of past times that a spread out across the island. Some examples include the world famous „Valley of the Temples“ in Agrigent with the structures more than 2,500 years old and are testament of Greek settlement on this island during the ancient times. Besides this also well preserved remains of antique structures can be visited in Syrakus oder Catania which are equally appealing.

Dancing on a volcano
Sicily is not only the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea but also has the highest and most active volcanoes in Europe – Etna that you can explore up close on your vacation to Sicily. There are a number of guided hiking tours offered that take you to summit craters, lava fields and places where eruptions occur frequently. You should not miss out on this exciting tour. The hikes usually take place between mid May until the end of October. But one must be careful: It is important to remember the Etna is still an active volcano. Inform yourself when there of the present dangers and options to explore the area in one of the many information centres.
Those who want more volcanic action will not want to miss out on guided tours to the Volcano Islands Volcano and Stromboli situated north of the coast of Sicily. Particularly the very active Stromboli offers a great spectacle as one can observe eruptions of red lava nearly every minute or hour. Both islands are part of the island group Aeolian Islands and there are regular connections from Messina and Milazzo.
If you have now become fascinated by volcanoes then you might want to pop over to the mainland and explore Mount Vesuvius in the Bay of Naples which is another famous volcano. It is by no means as active as those on Sicily though it is not extinct and there is speculation whether it could erupt again soon. The potential devastation such an eruption could cause can be seen in the famous ruins of the Roman towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum that were engulfed by lava in 79 AD. A visit to Mount Vesuvius could be incorporated within journey to and back from a holiday home vacation on Sicily. There are regular ferries that operate between Naples or Salerno and the Sicilian ports of Palermo and Catania.

Acireale rises on the edge of a lava plateau on the southeast slopes of Mt. Etna, overlooking the Ionian Sea. It offers a place enchanted by the blue of the sea, by the dark colour of the lava stone and by the green of citrus groves.
The history of Acireale sinks its roots in the myth of the unlucky love of Aci and Galatea. The shepherd Aci loves the nymph Galatea, daughter of the Billow who, bewitched by the sound of his flute, emerges from the sea to listen the sweet call.
One day the Cyclops Polyphemus he too madly in love with the nymph Galatea, seeing the two lovers tenderly together, induced by his jealousy pulled out of Etna an enormous stone and flung it at the shepherd. The harmony of the flute of Aci kept silent forever, but Galatea depressed, prayed the Gods to make her love return in life.
The long weeping of Galatea was transformed in a river where the body of Aci dissolved and he, flowing forever, found peace among the arms of Galatea, who was attending him in the blue Ionian sea where the two lovers melted in an endless embrace The myth permeates the places and makes them more suggestive. The giant Polifemo is Mt. Etna overwhelmed with rage that destroys with the lava the beautiful countries personified in Aci while Galatea is the representation of the fascination of the Sea.
