Or you may head to Isola Bella, the small village of Castelmola, which offers a magnificent 360-degree view of the entire region and where you can taste the almond wine, a speciality of the village.  In the evening you will return to your accommodation for a good night's sleep.

It extends along the sea next to the island of Ortigia that is linked to the mainland by a bridge, and offers visitors the remains of its glorious past: The Temple of Minerva, transformed into a Christian Cathedral, the legendary Fontana di Arethusa, which originates in a fresh water spring and creates a small semicircular lake with fishes, geese and ducks and where the plants of the only natural Papyrus (Papireto) in Europe grow luxuriantly, the fabled Apollo Temple, the Greek Theater and the Roman Amphitheater located near the Latomie (quarries), the Orecchio di Dionisio. You will have free time for lunch and then return to Taormina, where you will spend the night.

This day will begin after a filling breakfast at your hotel.  The tour will take you to one of the oldest quarries in Malta, which has been transformed into an attraction for both tourists and residents, vividly recounting one of the primary industries on the island: the use of limestone for building. A trade that goes back thousands of years in the past. The magic of Malta's antiquity can be seen in Hagar Qim, the main prehistoric site of this island. One of the prehistoric chambers at Haġar Qim holds an elliptical hole which is hewn out in alignment with the Summer Solstice sunrise. At sunrise, on the first day of the summer, the sun’s rays pass through this hole and illuminate a stone slab inside the chamber. A number of stone and clay statuettes of obese figures have also been unearthed in this temple, such as the Venus of Hagar Qim. From the site you will enjoy unsurpassed views of the vast expanse of the Mediterranean Sea and the islet of Filfla.

You will have the rest of the day free at your leisure. Hotel accommodation.

Greca Tip: At Hagar Qim there is a dedicated Visitor Information Centre with interactive presentatios and exhibitions.
