Taormina is the ideal, family-friendly setting in which to explore ancient ruins, medieval architecture, the Italian language, and the uniquely Sicilian way of life. Children participate in a week-long program complete with language classes and fun experiences, including a variety of hands-on workshops and activities with local chefs, artists, and artisans.
Adults are free to explore the beautiful city, enjoy a variety of nearby beaches, relax on their terraces, or take additional excursions, while the children explore the city with the program from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm daily. Two family excursions include hiking on Mount Etna, with a typical Sicilian lunch at a nearby winery, and a complete Market-to-Table culinary experience and feast, for the entire family. Meeting over a welcome cocktail and dinner, we wrap up the week with a group cooking class and dinner, followed by a talent show where the children can showcase their amazing Sicily-inspired creations and newly developed skills.
