You will have a fluent English speaking driver, very knowledgeable who will guide you through the discovery of this incredible region hopping on and off the car as much as you want.

Mt Etna Volcano is one of the world’s most active volcanoes, and the most active one in Europe. It has been erupting for several million years.

We will be picking you up from the shore of your port and to mount Etna through several Sicilian towns, passing old lava flows. During the ascent different kinds of vegetation can be noted. We will reach 2.000 meters / 7.000 ft where we then take a walk together to visit the “Silvestri” craters (last century eruption) and the latest new lava flows and craters from 2001/2003 – On the way, we visit a local family farm where it is possible to taste a local Etna wine, a selection of different types of honey (orange, lemon, eucalyptus, strawberry…), almond pastries, olives, extra virgin olive oil.

We then take you to one of the best known vineyards “Tenuta San Michele del Murgo” where it is possible to tour the wonderful property overlooking the sea and the volcano and taste some of their local table wine (optional stop on request).

Driving down from the mount through a wonderful pine tree forest, we get to the highlights of Taormina. The downtown centre represents a variety of historical periods, from the early Greek settlements and the Roman age, to the remains of Byzantine and Medieval constructions up to the 15th Century. Not to miss is a visit to the Greek Theatre, a stroll to the mean street “Corso Umberto” with several art and designers shops, Baroque churches and Palazzi. You can have an excellent meal at one of the local Sicilian places pointed out by your expert local guide.

Return to the port of Messina.
