Travel Information

Driving - Sicily, and indeed mainland Italy, is a wonderful destination for a driving holiday and having a car really helps you get the very best out of your trip, with some of the most spectacular sights in the region just a few hours’ drive away. If you decide to hire a car while in Italy, we strongly recommend you go with an internationally reputable firm.

If crossing from mainland Italy at Messina, simply take the A18 down the spectacular coastline, passing Catania along the way and turn off when you see signs for Augusta. The whole journey should take less than two hours. From Catania Airport follow the same instructions.

Air - The nearest airport is Catania International Airport, which is served by a host of major airlines. For internal flights within Italy, check the local Volagratis flight search site.

Trains & Coaches - A picturesque journey, Trenitalia’s entertaining service runs down the east coast of Sicily (actually originating all the way up in Milan), passing the awesome sight of Mount Etna along the way. Surprisingly however, the train service is no quicker than the coach, which also offers the same panoramic experience.

The Ionian Coast and the Mediterranean Sea

The east coast of Sicily offers some of the most beautiful, silky smooth beaches and stunning panoramas of the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean.

Dotted with resorts and quaint seaside towns, this region of southern Italy is one of the country’s best loved holiday destinations. Our exclusive accommodation in Augusta, near Siracusa, gives you the very best combination of wellbeing treatments and a holiday in the sun.
