What You’ll See and Do on the Tour
Your tour starts by ascending Mount Etna (up to a height of 2,100 m) in an off-road vehicle or minivan with an expert guide that will take you on a short hike through the craters and lava flows of a spectacular lunar landscape and volcanic caves. You’ll stop for wine tasting and enjoy local products like meats and cheeses, and then arrive in the enchanting city of Taormina.
A “hilly” city that dominates the east coast of the island, Taormina is famous for its ancient Greek-Roman amphitheater, a jewel of archeology. Near the theater, the cliffs that descend to the sea form coves of sandy beaches, and a narrow strip of sand connects to the tiny Isola Bella, a nature reserve. In Taormina, in addition to visiting the theater, you’ll stroll through the winding, characteristic medieval alleys. You’ll see spectacular Mt. Etna from another perspective, as well as the view of the Gulf of Giardini Naxos.
Finally, you’ll have time to stroll along the Corso Umberto and the narrow medieval streets of the village to enjoy some shopping at the delightful artisan shops and boutiques.
After about two hours, you’ll meet up with your guide who will be waiting for you to return to Catania.
