Brief description of the holiday
Welcome aboard our 3-day cruise with hostess sailing among the wonders of the Eastern coast of Sicily
Below we propose a typical itinerary to discover the Ionian coast of Sicily: Taormina (Riposto) Syracuse, Ortigia, Brucoli, Riposto.
The sailing holidays with us start in the afternoon after 17:00 from Porto dell'Etna, Riposto.
... finally arrived: the holiday begins! We will welcome you with a "Welcome" aperitif on board and typical Sicilian snacks, also an opportunity for a briefing on everything concerning safety on board: a few rules but necessary to make your holiday unique and unforgettable. The first evening we will dine on board in the marina, an opportunity to become familiar with those who will rock us in the following days.
The next morning, after a hearty breakfast on board, we will drop moorings and set our bow on route to Syracuse, crossing the Gulf of Catania and Augusta. During the navigation we will have lunch leaving our wonderful Etna at the stern. In the afternoon we will moor at the large port of Syracuse. The charm of Ortigia is not easy to describe and therefore it is necessary to live it. In the evening we will be able to dine in one of the many trattorias and restaurants or have a reinforced aperitif in one of the many places overlooking the great port.
After breakfast our route will point to the Gulf of Catania making a stop in Brucoli for lunch. We will land in Catania in the afternoon and after mooring, it will be possible to visit the Duomo and the Via Etnea among the many wonders of a Baroque city. Etna is the absolute protagonist from via Etnea as well as the remarkable baroque style buildings. Here too you can choose to dine in one of the many places with typical Sicilian and local cuisine offers.
After breakfast we will leave the moorings with Riposto route along Aci Castello and Aci Trezza and the Faraglioni. Expected arrival at the port of Etna at around 13:00. You will realize that your vacation has flown by, and our success will have reached the top when you want to come back on board with us.

Other important information
Some tips for your unique holiday!
Who is the holiday for?
To all! Even to those who have never been on a boat.
What baggage should I bring? What do I put in it?
Absolutely NO rigid TROLLEY. The bags are ideal because they are easily stowed in the lockers. Usually when you leave for a holiday the temptation to bring a lot of stuff is a lot, on a sailing holiday you will use costumes, some T-shirts or sarongs, a pair of sneakers for excursions, shorts, a beach towel and towels.
Remember to bring a headgear, sunscreen, a pair of sunglasses and flip flops.
Can I top up the phone?
The boat is equipped with USB sockets, but frankly we hope that your sailing holiday will give you the opportunity to forget about technology and social media; in any case it is possible to recharge, keeping in mind, however, that the energy is always limited.
