Gardens of eastern Sicily

Wednesday 11 to Wednesday 18 May 2022

This trip to eastern Sicily will focus on the gardens and native plants of the area through a series of visits to public and private gardens in Catania, Taormina, Siracusa and on Mount Etna. We will also visit two nurseries, enjoy two easy nature walks, and visit both an archaeological and a historic site in Siracusa, which will enable us to put into context some of the historical background of the area. The trip will be led by local horticulturalist Sergio Cumitini.

Accommodation for the first four nights will be in Catania, followed by three nights in Siracusa.

Fee: £1210 per person (single occupancy supplement £295) including accommodation and all meals, local transport, guiding, entrance fees and the option of a transfer from Catania airport. Flights are not included. A deposit of £320 per person will be payable by 28 February to confirm acceptance of the offer of a place. The balance will be due by 31 March.
