A classic Sicily stay in the coastal town of Naxos, with half board, handy city and beach shuttles, an optional trip to stunning Mount Etna, and all travel

Sitting in the chilled-out resort town of Giardini Naxos, Hotel Caesar Palace combines resort convenience and comfortable accommodations with access to stunning Taormina and Mount Etna nearby. With two restaurants, two bars, swimming pools and the beach all close to hand, you’d be forgiven for never tearing yourself away from the resort, but the ancient ruins and volcanic landscapes of the surrounding area will reward you for making the effort.

If you’re feeling adventurous, your stay can incorporate a trip to the mighty Mount Etna, with a guided trek taking in picturesque spots like the Silvestri Craters. Etna is among the most active volcanoes in the world, and its shadow hangs literally and figuratively over the surrounding area; nearby towns have been destroyed many times over by its eruptions, but the profusion of fertile vineyards and olive groves owe their existence to the area’s volcanic activity.
