Sicily is a fascinating island with Mount Etna, Europe’s only active volcano, a fabulous coast and a unique culture at the crossroads of the Med. This location means it has been fought over for millennia, so you will find Greek ruins and Byzantine churches and taste Italian gelato and North African kebabs! The landscape is as varied as its history, with towering mountains, huge forests and, pretty important when you’re on holiday, beautiful beaches and hidden coves.  

Included in this holiday -

  • Welcome cocktail and get-together 
  • Excursion to 1900m up Mount Etna, with options to take funicular or hike (stiff 4 hour climb) to next level, or take a jeep. You may not want to get so close, so we don't include these tickets! After lunch* we drive to Taormina to see the famous amphitheatre.  
  • Excursion by train to Palermo for a guided walking tour with local expert and admire Byzantine mosaics in the cathedral. Lunch*, followed by visits to Villa Garibaldi and the Catacombs (entrance fees not included). 
  • Excursion to Cefalu with free time for shopping and lunch*.
  • A relaxed 2 hour boat trip along the coast for sunning, swimming and snapping (photos).

*Own expense



It is a very contemporary four-star hotel located right on the coast, with magnificent sea views from the main pool and terrace areas. There are two swimming pools, sun decks with plenty of loungers and umbrellas, a gym, tennis court and from the (rocky) beach area it is possible to snorkel and dive. There’s a chic poolside bar and two restaurants, where we’ll have our own table(s). At a bigger hotel like this, other guests may include children, but our dates are outside of school holiday periods and kids have both their own pool and an activities club. The spacious public areas reflect the sophisticated style of the hotel. 

We include continental breakfast and four dinners (1 at the hotel and 3 at local restaurants) with your Host, each week. Fresh fish features on many menus, as well as local specialities from Caponata (aubergine salad) to Cannoli (a sweet ricotta pudding).

The hotel is beautifully set on the north coast and on four days we include trips to Mount Etna, to the capital of Palermo and to pretty Cefalu, plus there's an enjoyable boat trip. The 9 night option adds two (un-hosted) days of B&B and relaxation at the end of the week.

The hotel is located in the Santa Flavia Province of Palermo. A short taxi ride or 15 minutes walk is the harbour area where there are some restaurants and local bars. In the opposite direction is a long coastline with a few restuarants and other hotels. Please note - for independent exploring please budget for taxi fares, since there is no local bus service. 


The Domina is within 15kms of Palermo, which is a must-do when it comes to sightseeing. The Cathedral’s architecture reflects the island’s colourful history: muslim, gothic, romantic and modern all mixed up. The Catacombs are a more grizzly, but also unmissable ‘attraction’ with over 8000 mummified bodes in the monastery tombs. More fun are the lively markets, with everything from ‘antiquities’ to street food on offer. NEW for 2016 we have included excursions in this activity holiday.
