Things to do – Cultural Experiences

Palmento La Rosa is ideal as a base for exploring Sicily's southeast. Around Mount Etna, there are many intriguing villages and baroque towns worth seeing. The volcano can be ascended with your own transport or by organised tour. Taormina, Catania and Acireale provide international fashion and art. The towns of Siracusa, Noto, Piazza Armerina and Caltagirone are ideal for one-day sightseeing trips.

We are happy to arrange individual theme tours and organise opera and theatre tickets as well as transport. Let us know your plans and check for prices.

An unforgettable treat is our wine tasting with BBQs or typical antipasti at different wine-growing estates.
