Description

This is a private tour of Mt. Etna that departs from Taormina or the port at Messina and includes visiting the beautiful valley around Mt. Etna and experiencing the local wines and olive oil that Sicily is famous for.  
 
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. Mt Etna is one of the greatest and most beautiful volcano adventure tour destinations in Sicily, beside many other which can be easily enjoyed from the charming village of Taormina. We will be pleased to pick you up at your hotel at your most convenient time in the morning, (advisable 9,00 a.m.) and drive to mount Etna through several Sicilian towns (Santa Venerina, Zafferana...) and visit some old lava flow on the ways. During the ascent different kinds of vegetation can be noted. We will reach 2.000 meters (7.000 ft) where we take a walk together to visit the "Silvestri" craters (1986) and the latest new lava flows and craters from 2001/2002/2003, enjoy the desert moon atmosphere! On the way, we will also stop and visit a local family farm where it is possible to taste local Etna wine, a selection of natural honey (orange, lemon, eucalyptus, strawberry.), almond pastries, olives, extra virgin olive oil.
 
We then drive one of the most scenic rout called “Mare Neve/ sea mountain” with a wonderful view over our volcano and the blue Ionian sea. Along the way we stop in one of the best known vineyards “Gambino” where it is possible to tour the wonderful property overlooking the sea and have a wine tasting with a Sicilian typical brunch (wine tasting only Euro 5,00 per person / brunch and wine tasting Euro 15,00 per person). We then continue our way towards Linguaglossa village and visit the most charming and unspoiled Sicilian village of Castiglione di Sicilia and take a walk to the old Greek fortress to admire an amazing spot with a breathtaking view over the Alcantara valley. On the way to Naxos, we stop and visit the Alcantara Gorges, with their wonderful waterfall created from an old lava eruption. A nice moment to refresh… We will end the day with a visit of village of Giardini Naxos (first Greek colony in Sicily) by the sea, which was hit and covered by an old lava flows.
