When you cruise to Sicily, you’ll visit the largest island in the Mediterranean and a region of Italy that attracts visitors from all over the world. The island is dominated by the often snow-capped cone of Mount Etna, the coast studded with charming seaside villages and beaches. You'll visit extraordinary antiquities, experience delicious cuisine and flavorful local wines, and enjoy the warm climate along Italy's southernmost coast all on one journey.
Sicily cruises bring you to historic ports like Messina, where you can wander the medieval streets, enjoy a cappuccino at an outdoor café, or explore the Duomo, an imposing and elegant cathedral built in the 12th century. In Taormina, you can shop for local artisanal goods, relax on one of the black sand beaches, or visit the vine-clad slopes and lava fields of Etna. A Sicily cruise is the perfect way to enjoy the splendors of Italy's southern Mediterranean coastline, all with the service, convenience, and luxury amenities that Celebrity offers.
Visit the Valley of the Temples, one of the largest archaeological sites in the world, its antiquities dating back millennia. Take a tour of the Messina Bell Tower, and admire the remarkable astronomical clock. Stroll through the 18th century Villa Bellini Gardens in Catania, where you can admire some great views of Mount Etna as you take in the colorful flowers, splashing fountains, and an ornate, belle epoch bandstand.
Situated atop a rocky promontory, Taormina is one of the most beautiful towns in Sicily. Look for handmade jewelry while you walk through Piazza Vittorio Emanuele and around the historic medieval quarter. Stop for cannoli, fried pastry tubes filled with sweetened ricotta, a local specialty. Taormina is also known for its exquisite Greco-Roman amphitheater, with sweeping sea views and a backdrop of the brooding peak of Etna.
The majestic Mount Etna, located in eastern Sicily, towers 11,014 feet into the air. Its peak can be seen on the horizon from many areas of the island. Etna is active, and you’ll often see it belching steam, but this doesn’t deter wine growers, who cultivate some of Italy’s finest wines on its fertile volcanic slopes.
Sail to Sicily’s wonderful eastern shores on luxurious itineraries of 9, 10, 11, 12, and 14 nights. Cruises to Sicily will take you to ports such as Messina and Catania, known for their architecture and history, where you can explore extraordinary archaeological sites, discover the beaches, or visit the island’s lush interior. Many itineraries also include stops in some of the most popular ports of the eastern and southern Mediterranean.
