Package Details

Home to some spectacular natural scenery, from golden sandy beaches to verdant gardens and white marlstone cliffs, Sicily is renowned for its extraordinary beauty. It’s also home to Europe’s tallest active volcano—Mount Etna. Discover this soaring World Heritage Site from the air with an exclusive 3-night stay at Verdura Resort.

Take up residence in your own Sicilian apartment in one of our spacious, contemporary villas. Villa Tilia, Villa Agave and Villa Iris all offer their own private pool and terrace, and will be stocked ready for your arrival with a welcoming array of local delicacies from sparkling wine to Sicilian cheese and special Verdura Società Agricola products. For a real taste of local culture, celebrated Sicilian artist Michele Bono will even paint your portrait during your stay. 

After settling in, savour a 5-course dinner on Amare Restaurant’s elegant rooftop terrace as the sun slowly dips below the horizon. Each course will be crafted with a flourish before your eyes by a dedicated private chef and accompanied by wine chosen by our knowledgeable sommelier.

On your second day, you’ll be treated to a Sicilian Aroma Massage for two in a private beach cabana, just metres from the shore. Inhale the scent of aromatic oils made from local flora as our highly trained therapists induce deep relaxation.

Feeling fully restored, it’s time to meet your pilot and board a private helicopter for a thrilling flight over the countryside. Pass over vineyards, olive and citrus groves and ancient towns and villages on your way to the eastern side of the island, gently ascending the vast red and black slopes of Mount Etna.

Once at the summit, you’ll be met by an experienced guide who’ll help you navigate the otherworldly volcanic craters, caves and barren fields of igneous rock. Not only is the summit truly fascinating, but the panoramic views stretching out over the island are magnificent on clear days.
