(Pick up from Catania port) 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 drive along the seaside and stop at the towns of Aci Castello and Aci Trezza, two pretty Sicilian fishing villages. We then continue our journey to mount Etna passing Sicilian town and 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 local Etna wine, a selection of different types of honey (orange, lemon, eucalyptus, strawberry…), almond pastries, olives, extra virgin olive oil. Driving down from the mount through a wonderful pine tree forest, we get to the charming Taormina.
We will then take you to the historical centre of Taormina and under our tip, you will have your own free time to explore the village, stroll the mean streets and narrow ways with picturesque corners and nice shops. We can also suggest a good local place to let you have something to eat.
The driver will be waiting in Taormina and at your most convenient time, will drive you back to your ship.
