At Arte al Sole, we want kids and their families to find new inroads into an ancient culture and explore the land that has been traversed by dozens of peoples for thousands of years. For this reason, we delight in bringing our summer camp program to a place off-the-beaten track, but within reach of all the major cities and seaside towns that have been enchanting visitors for centuries.
So, from our charming country house set between Syracuse and the southern seaside, families can explore towns, natural reserves, or archeological sites or take it easy by the sea. While your kids learn about Sicily’s ceramic and chocolate making traditions, country life and mosaics, parents can take part in various activities too. Afternoons are spent together, sight-seeing, sunbathing, or splashing in the Mediterranean Sea
or round the pool.
