Hello! I'm Rossella Grande and in this itinerary I will let you discover some of the most beautiful villages and castles that you can visit between the provinces of Messina and Catania. Your adventure will begin the moment you land at Catania's airport and get into your car. Together we will go to the discovery of Calatabiano, Taormina, Mazzarò, Castelmola and many other places! We will also dive into the waves of the Ionian Sea, sunbathing on the beautiful beach of Isola Bella. So, what are you waiting for to take a plane ticket to Sicily?
