Piedimonte Etneo

The apartment is situated just outside Piedimonte Etneo on the north eastern slopes of the famous volcano Mount Etna and overlooks the Fogliarino valley. Ideally situated, it sits in the countryside but is in between the Mountain and the Sea. A perfect holiday to enjoy the clear blue sea and sunbathing or for enjoying mountain walks or skiing.There are two ski areas on Etna. The northern one ends in Linguaglossa and the southern resort is above Nicolosi. The northern side can be reached by the Highway A18 Linguaglossa and Piano Provenzana (altitude 1900 m.). You can also visit the Etna Natural Park with its numerous natural footpaths with graded levels of difficulties.

Taormina

· Taormina is touristy, but when you come here, you'll understand why. It is situated with a spectacular view of the volcano Mount Etna. And to take in an evening concert at Taormina's stunning outdoor Greek theatre, you'll feel like you're communing with the heavens. (In the past few years, Peter Gabriel and Simply Red have been some of the performers there.)

· If you're a shopaholic, Taormina's boutiques will more than satisfy. On the main pedestrian streets, you'll find everything from locally made lemon soap to designer gold jewelry studded with Sicilian coral.

· And a hike up to Castelmona, the town above Taormina, is divine for the views. Castelmola is a charming little town. If you don't wish to hike uphill from Taormina, it is a short bus ride away.

Alcantara Gorge:

Great experience and a refreshing swim during the blistering summer!  Toddlers to grannies were wading and swimming today (August) in the constant 17 degree, crystal clear water coming out of the gorge.  The water is brisk but then you just stand up and dry off in the sun.
