Excursions “Art & Culture” MATERA

THE “VALLE DEI TEMPLI”

SICILY - From Sirenusa Village LICATA - Half Day Licata is a centre able to offer remarkable cues for a cultural and artistic visit, beginning with its castles: the S. Angelo Castle, the S. Nicola and Gaffe Towers, and the Falconara Castle. Amongst the religious buildings we note: the S. Agostino Church, the Purgatorio Church, The Church of SS. Salvatore and the San Domenico Church (1618). THE “VALLE DEI TEMPLI” - Full Day The Valle dei Templi is situated near the sea and it is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and also an important archaeological evidence of ancient Greek civilization. There are seven sacred places whose ruins it is possible to admire. One of these is the Temple of Hera with its rectangular plan and 34 columns, the Temple of Concorde, which is still perfectly preserved, and the Temple of Castor and Pollux. The temples built with tuff stone assume a golden colour in the sunset, creating a surreal landscape. CALTAGIRONE - Full Day A visit to the City passes by the Duomo of S. Giuliano, a Norman building which was reconstructed in the 17th century, in order to reach the Piazza del Municipio (Municipal Square) where you can find the Palazzo Senatorio (15th century). There are many churches in the City, amongst which those of the Cappuccini, of Salvatore and S. Maria del Monte. Caltagirone also offers important visits to museums: the Museo Regionale della Ceramica (Regional Museum of Ceramics), Villa Patti which hosts the Museum of Historic Villas and the Civic Museum. THE “VILLA ROMANA DE CASALE DI PIAZZA ARMERINA - Full Day Dating back to the Roman period, Piazza Armeria is our starting point to begin discovering the Enna province. In its central square, you will see forty splendid and perfectly-preserved mosaics embellishing the grand cathedral. The cathedral is composed of various venues opening out around the main courtyard that sits in the middle of eighteen marble columns or peristyles. The Villa is considered the best example of artwork from the Roman era, and has been proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site. RAGUSA - Full Day When visiting the City, the following are recommended: the Ibleo Regional Archaeological Museum which hosts an important collection of ancient finds for different eras: Pre-Historic, Sicula, Greek and Roman. Nearby, it’s possible to visit the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist (18th Century) and S. Maria delle Scale, which connects the two cities like the great bridges connecting Ragusa Superiore (Upper Town) to the Inferiore (Lower Town).One can therefore then visit the Duomo of S. Giorgio (1738) with its Neo-Classical dome.

SARDINIA - From Calaserena Village VILLASIMIUS - Half Day The idyllic beaches and breathtaking landscape of the picturesque former fishing village of Villasimius attract increasing numbers of visitors each summer. You can visit Fortezza Vecchia (the old fortress), which dates from the 17th century, dominates the harbour and is now the scene of art exhibitions organized by an international art centre. Nearby Capo Carbonara affords an lovely panoramic view of the sea. The area features small beaches and coves of every description, as The Villasimius area has been declared as a marine nature preserve, is well known among divers for its rich variety of marine flora and fauna. In Villasimius and the surrounding area there are archaeological remains of Phoenician culture, as well as Roman necropolises.

TREMITI ISLANDS

ets and alleyways fill up with the lights of the evening, giving the impression that one is strolling through a Nativity scene of papiermâché. This is Matera, where the Rupestrian churches and famous Sassi – the very peculiar settlements carved into the rock – were named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993. A walk through Matera’s historic center will transport visitors back into a past long-forgotten. ALBEROBELLO AND ITS TRULLI - Full Day (from both hotels) The “trulli”, the characteristic cone-roofed houses of Alberobello, make up one of the 47 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Italy. The name derives from the late Greek word for dome (τρούλος; in Italian, cupola), and refers to the ancient stone houses with conical roofs, constructed with the abundant limestone from the plateau of Apulia’s Murge zone. These impressive and unique structures, are a example of architecture that is spontaneous, yet imperishable; to this day they are still used as homes. Alberobello, an inland village of the Province of Bari, is undoubtedly the Capital of the Trulli: its historic center is integrally constituted by these rather particular white, pyramidal structures that make it so famous and identifiable. OSTUNI - Half Day (from Torreserena Village only) The hilltop town of just over 30,000 people is well worth visiting, thanks to the beautiful scenery on all sides. The view of the city from a distance is breathtaking; the white-washed homes cap the hilltop, juxtaposed with the jagged skyline of domes and towers. Views of the surrounding countryside are astounding, particularly to the east, where the cliffs and beaches of the Adriatic coastline can be clearly seen. Ostuni is known as “the White Town” because all of its buildings are painted white, and there is no end to the beautiful architecture. Pause to take in the stunning view from the top of Corso Vittorio Emmanuele. If the ocean wind is too strong, you can take refuge in the archeological museum or in the duomo. CASTELLANA CAVES - Half Day (from both hotels) The caves of Castellana are by now the biggest complex of caves in Italy, and can be found in the Murgia Area. Formed during the last millennia thanks to the constant leakage of water through the limestone ground, these caves were opened to the public for the first time in 1939. The view that can be enjoyed during a walk through the caves (the longest itinerary is about 3 km) is amazing: stalactites, stalagmites, little lakes, ending in the "white cave" a stunning huge, shiny and scenic room formed only of white stalactites. The "white cave" is considered by most of the experts to be the best in the world. For this reason the caves of Castellana have often been chosen as a location for movies, events and important TV shows. GALLIPOLI 131 km - Full Day (from Grand Hotel Serena only) Gallipoli's Old Town, built on an island now connected to the mainland by a bridge, is picturesque and a nice place to stroll through its maze of alleys. Several interesting churches are along the perimeter of the old town facing the sea. The walls and bastions surrounding the old town are believed to have been built in the 15th century to fend off attacks, especially from pirates. The pretty port is still used by fishing boats and you'll see fishermen mending their colorful nets and houses decorated with fishing baskets. Castello Angiono stands near the entrance to the old town. The current fortress, built on old Byzantine fortifications, probably originated in the 11th century but was altered quite a bit in the 15th century. The Corte Gallo is a surprising little alleyway that looks like an open-air ethnographic museum. . A sandy beach, Spiaggia della Purita, lies on one side of the old town, outside the walls.

CALABRIA - From Sibari Green Village and Serenè Village

SAN PIETRO AND CARLOFORTE - Full Day Panoramic tour of the island and her wonderful beaches for swimming and snorkelling. Excellent beaches, both rocky and sandy, line the coast of the island. Some of the cliff-top views are nothing short of spectacular. On the other side of the island from Carloforte is a functioning lighthouse (Capo Sandalo Lighthouse, now automated), locally known simply as 'il faro' and whose structure dates back to the 1880s.

SYBARIS AND “THE MAGNA GRECIA” Full Day - (From Sibari Green Village only) Sybaris was an ancient city in Magna Graecia on the western shore of the Gulf of Taranto in the Ionian Sea, in Southern Italy. The wealth of the city during the 6th century BC was so great that the Sybarites became synonymous with pleasure and luxury. The modern town of Sibari lies near the ruins of the Greek city;

APULIA -

POLLINO NATIONAL PARK - (From Sibari Green Village only) It was founded in 1992 and includes both natural and archaeological points of interest. The park's symbol is the Bosnian Pine, which here has one of its last remaining growing areas in Italy. Towns with interesting sights include Rotonda, Castrovillari, Morano Calabro (convent of Colloreto), Laino, Castello Normannom Scalea, Papasidero, Civita Cerchiara (church of Madonna delle Armi). Albanian-speaking communities are present in villages such as San Paolo Albanese, San Costantino Albanese andd others. In the Valle del Mercure have been

MATERA - “THE SASSI AND RUPESTRIAN CHURCHES - Full Day (from both hotels) Ancient habitations dug into the tuff rock of a chalky plateau open up around a hollow, with the Gravina di Matera River flowing past this spectacular and unique city Roofs by turns become the foundations for new habitations on the levels overhead. Lots of narrow stre-

ALBEROBELLO AND ITS TRULLI

discovered remains of pre-historic species such as Elephas antiquus and Hippopotamus maior. ROSSANO AND LIQUORICE FACTORY - Full Day - (From Sibari Green Village only) Rossano looks out over the Ionian Sea….it sits in the hills filled with olive groves. Don’t be confused - there seem to be 3 very different Rossanos: The one at the sea - Lido Sant’Angelo; the inland town - Rossano Scalo; and the original old town - Rossano. Rossano is known as the "Byzantine Pearl of Calabria"….it was a Byzantine empire for centuries and was the birthplace of St. Nilo (a Byzantine monk). According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica, the best liquorice in the world is the one found in Calabria. In fact, in the stretch between the towns of Roseto Capo Spulico and Cariati, the Liquorice plant grows wild, finding in the clay soils its natural habitat. In Rossano in 1710 the first factory for the production of liquorice was built and today the liquorice of Rossano is exported around the world. PIZZO CALABRO, TROPEA AND CAPO VATICANO - Full Day (from Serenè Village only) Let's take a quick detour north to Pizzo, where Napoleon's ill-fated brother-in-law Joachim Murat was imprisoned and shot in 1815. Not much remains of the infamous castle where he was held, but the town is picturesque, has a fine sandy beach and, for lovers of the extravagant, there is the chiesetta di Piedigrotta, a sanctuary carved into a grotto, with lifesize praying figures. From Pizzo we travel toward Briatico and Tropea. On the horizon is S. Maria dell'Isola, a lovely little 12th-century church set on an island-like promontory. There are still many 16th- and 17th-century family homes here, which look very romantic when illuminated at night. Between Tropea and Nicotera, especially in the areas around Parghelia and Capo Vaticano, the road curves along high above a non-stop succession of beautiful beaches and interesting rocky coves, creating a coastline that many have likened to Big Sur. The water is usually extremely clear. THE CASTELLA - Hal Day ((from Serenè Village only) The castle was fully restored in 2001 and I visited it as part of the SIAFT (Southern Italy Agrifood and Tourism) invitation by the Chamber of Commerce of Crotone. Our guide added some great human stories to the chronicled history.quillace in the province of Crotone To be precised, in Isola di Caporizzuto looking out over the protected marine reserve of the same name. You don't need much imagination to see the Aragonese soldiers locked in combat with Turkish pirates five centuries ago. The main structure dates back to the Angevin period. The giveaway is the cylindrical tower which juts out over the walls. Yet, the ancient Greeks did build some defensive walls in the shallows many years before. Pliny, in his Naturalis Historia, mentions various little islands such as Dioscuri, Calipso, Tiris, Meloessa and Eranusa. These collectively may be the origin of the name Le Castella.

ADRIATIC SEA RIVIERA - From Serena Majestic Hotel THE TRABOCCHI COAST - Full Day The Trabocchi routes stretch from the coast at Francavilla al Mare to Vasto and into the hinterland to places such as Bomba, Mozzagrogna and Filetto. The trabocchi are those characteristic huts built on stilts which hover above the crashing waves of the Adriatic. They were used by local fishermen who, we guess, would practically live in them until they achieved a sufficient catch. The 'camosci' are the shy chamois deer who inhabit the Abruzzo mountains, while the final itinerary opens the visitor's eyes to regional folklore and pagan superstition which is still present. What we do know is that Tollo was an Etruscan settlement before becoming occupied by the Romans, Longobards, Spanish and French. Some classical votives from the area do exist in the Archaeological Museum of Chieti. Perhaps a good time to visit Tollo is the first Sunday of August. The town remembers the day in 1566 when the inhabitants were finally able to defeat marauding Turkish pirates thanks to the appearance of the Madonna del Rosario. The battle is re-enacted every year. TREMITI ISLANDS - Full Day Approximately twelve sea miles from the Northern coast of the Gargano, there are three islands and a number of rock formations which make up the archipelago of the Tremiti islands. The Tremiti islands are now a protected marine reserve, and with their unique environment, in the middle of the blue waters of the Adriatic sea, are the habitat of a wealth of sea life. They are home to an ancient settlement of fishermen who today still speak in Partenopean dialect. The Tremiti islands are made up of the islands of San Nicola, San Domino, and Capraia, this last is uninhabited and covered in Mediterranean vegetation.

5. Your Financial Protection The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992 require us to provide security for the monies that you pay for the package holidays booked from us and for your repatriation in the event of our insolvency.
