Voyage to Sicily's popular seaside resort
Many people only know of Sicily from The Godfather, but it’s an incredible island worth discovering. So if you get the chance to visit with Azamara, it’s an offer you really shouldn’t refuse.
For a little rest and relaxation, Giardini Naxos is just the ticket. The coast seems to stretch on for miles, and there are many lidos dotting the beaches, where you can rent a chair and umbrella, and maybe even have a little afternoon riposo (the Italian version of a siesta). If it gets too hot, treat yourself to a delicious granita.
To the left of Giardini Naxos looms Mount Etna, Italy’s largest active volcano. Hikes to the top of the mountain are only advised for experienced hikers (dress warmly!), but the Silvestri Craters are fun to explore at any skill level, and you can walk right down into the base of these inactive craters.
Or head to the hilltop town of Taormina, one of the most beautiful places in all of Sicily. Stroll down the Corso Umberto for good shopping and people watching, and don’t even think about leaving before visiting the Teatro Greco. The Roman arena is a piece of art in and of itself, but it’s the sweeping views that are the star attraction.Download An Explorer Guide +
