Born on a basilica pre-existing, converted into a mosque by the arabs and then returned by the normans in the christian religion, the cathedral is adorned with gothic decorations and houses the relics of Santa Rosalia, patron saint of the city. There are also the tombs of the emperors, including Roger II and Frederick II. Close by is the Palazzo dei Normanni, originally the building of the arab, always the seat of power: it contains the Palatine chapel, rich in mosaics of byzantine influence, which, together with those of the church of Santa Maria of the Admiral or Martorana), are real masterpieces of art.

Lipari is part of it, exactly as Panarea, Stromboli and Vulcano, in the archipelago of the Aeolian Islands.That is the goal of your holidays, or simply the stage of your journey travelling in Sicily, Lipari deserve to take a bit of time. This island, in fact, is a fair compromise between those who want comfort, thanks to the hotel equipped with services and amenities, natural beauty, thanks to the magnificent landscapes to the beautiful beaches, and fun. In fact in Lipari, you can also find local restaurants where you can spend carefree hours, once you leave the beach. Lipari is the largest island in the archipelago of the Aeolian islands, and certainly will not miss the services. But let's talk about the beaches, the real reason that attracted us to Travelgram here in Lipari.Those that we want to recommend are the beach of Praia di Vinci, sandy with some pebble, in its waters crystalline you practice, it is often snorkeling, the beach of Canneto, set like a precious stone within a bay lambida from the crystal-clear sea, the beach of Acquacalda, located in the village of Lipari, which is really a beach postcard. Here you can find the cave, and a wild nature that we are sure will not fail to impress.And then again the beach Papesca, with the ruins of the mine infrastructures, the beach of Porticello, and the beach of Valle Muria.Last, we point out the White Beach, according to many the most beautiful of the island of Lipari.

Tindari

Tindari is a frazione of the comune of Patti, in the province of Messina. Extends on the gulf of Patti and it is a wonderful place where to spend unforgettable days.From prehistory to modern history, in a succession of landscapes of exceptional beauty.The city has ancient origins, was in fact founded in the year 396 a. C. by Dionysius of Syracuse. Initially Tindari was a colony of mercenaries who had taken part in the war against Carthage and took the name of Tyndaris, in honor of Tindaro, king of Sparta.In the years to follow was a very important naval base (first punic war) and in its waters the romans, led by consul Gaius Attilio Calatino, turned to flight the carthaginians (battle of Tindari 257.C.). Together with the city of Syracuse came under the dominion of the romans, and became the naval base of Sextus Pompey. In the 36 in. C. was taken by Augustus, who transformed it into a roman colony (one of five on the island of sicily). In the first century ad. C. a landslide destroyed the “noble " civic” (Cicero) and a few centuries later it was the turn of destructive earthquakes. In the 500 arrived, the byzantines made it the seat of the bishop and reigned till 836, the year in which they arrived, the arabs who destroyed it.After the destruction of the arab remained standing only the sanctuary dedicated to the Black Madonna of Tindari in the course of the years it was altered and enlarged. Tindari is a city in sicily, and as the island has undergone several dominations and different cultural influences and today show proud under the sun.Tindari hides many treasures. In the archaeological area are the ruins of the ancient city. The first excavations were carried out in the year 1838-1839 to be resumed in the 1960's and to follow. Between the land of Tindari were found mosaics, sculptures and ceramics which are now preserved in part in the Archaeological Museum of Palermo, and in part in the Museum localeQuesti finds, and the excavations that have been made, speak to us of the past of Tindari, of what was and of how he has lived the years during various invasions. The urban layout of the city dates back, probably, to the period of its foundation, and is a game of chess, with three main streets, one of which housed a theatre, and the agora (where now stands the shrine of the Black Madonna). Also interesting are the city walls that stretch for about three kilometres, and are now partly visible. Were rebuilt in the third century. C. on the walls earlier.The main door is on the south west side and was flanked by two towers. The ancient theater was built at the end of the fourth century and renovated in the roman era, with new decorations and various adaptations for the games of the amphitheatre. This theater was long abandoned and only rediscovered in the NINETEENTH century. The theatre is located next to a hill in which were carved out of the large steps that served as seats and could accommodate about three hundred people. During the roman period, it was added a porch and reconstructed the scene. The orchestra was transformed into an arena. From 1956, this theatre is held a festival with the diverse manifestations of dance, music and theatre. The romans, as well as the refurbishment of the theatre have also left a whole block with different houses and environments for the trade. The houses date back to The first century. C., even if, in the course of time have undergone several changes. The “Basilica” is a two-storey building of the IV century, that has a wide center passage with a barrel vault, divided into nine arches.

Il tour e'stato molto positivo ha rispettato tutti gli step programmati. Escursioni interessanti e il gruppo e'risultato sempre coeso e simpatico.L'accompagnatrice Giacoma si e' rivelata molto competente.Il secondo hotel a Brolo era in posizione strategica fronte mare traversando la strada si era in spiaggia.L'unica criticità'che si può' rilevare e' stata sul cibo in quanto sebbene sia stato ottimo e abbondante e i camerieri sempre gentili e cortesi non ci sono mai state servite specialità' locali tranne i cannoli siciliani.Proporre in estate con più' di trenta gradi risotti coi funghi e lonza di maiale lo trovo alquanto fuori luogo.

da Maria S. - 24/09/2021, alle 09:22
Sul viaggio tutto bene. Il solo appunto che devo fare è che non sono stata informata dell'anticipo del volo..... mi hanno dovuto chiamare con l'altoparlante e ho corso il rischio di perdere l'aereo dell'andata. Se guardate la comunicazione via email vedrete che non viene fatto cenno del cambiamento di orario.

Saluti.
