Eastern Sicily Photography Tour Aug 2020

Sicily, Italy's most photogenic region. With its millennia of turbulent history, majestic Mt. Etna, picture-perfect hilltop villages, baroque towns, mesmerising landscapes and seascapes, and cultural treasures, Sicily is one of the most fascinating and versatile destinations for a photography holiday in Europe.

Eastern Sicily, the area surrounding Catania, which also includes Taormina, Mt. Etna, Syracuse and the baroque towns of Noto, Modica and Ragusa is jam-packed with some of the best and most varied photographic opportunities you could ever want.

There will be interesting opportunities for street photography in the markets, squares and streets we will visit, and for shooting some of Sicily’s most iconic locations like Mt. Etna and the ancient Greek theatre in Taormina.

The charming towns and little villages offer great opportunities for cultural and architectural photography and the huge variety of landscapes and seascapes is fantastic. We will take you to Eastern Sicily’s most stunning locations at the right time for the best light.
