Taormina & Etna Excursion

At the time of your choice, we'll pick you up at your hotel or at the cruise port of Catania. From there, we'll head north by minibus to Mount Etna. Ready to explore one of the most famous volcanoes in Italy?

After an hour's drive, we'll arrive at Etna Natural Park, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Once we reach our starting altitude of 1900 meters, we'll get out of the vehicle and begin a hiking route through the fascinating landscape of this volcano.

Over the course of an hour and a half, we'll walk around the Silvestri Craters, ancient volcanic cones that are currently inactive. You'll be mesmerized by the great variety of colors featured in the landscape, mixing the reddish and blackish tones of the solidified lava with shades of yellow from the sulfur.

Then, we'll return to the minibus and head for Taormina, nicknamed the Pearl of the Mediterranean. Here, you can explore the city on your own or take a two-hour guided tour. The choice is yours!

As you make your way through the city, you'll see the gates of ancient walls, medieval constructions like Corvaja Palace, the Greco-Roman theater, the 15th-century cathedral and many other emblematic monuments. Of course, you'll also have plenty of time to taste the city's delicious cuisine.

After seven hours of exploring, the excursion will end and we'll take you back to your hotel or to the port of Catania.
