Enjoy a day full of nature and culture with this excursion to Mount Etna and Taormina. Don't miss this opportunity to visit the highest active volcano in Europe!
Mount Etna & Taormina Excursion
At the time of your choice, we'll meet at the port of Giardini Naxos. From there, we'll take a bus directly to Mount Etna, just over an hour away. There, we'll discover all the secrets of the highest active volcano in Europe, standing at 3300 meters high - an incredible sight!
Our first stop will be at the Sapienza Refuge, where we'll learn about the last eruptions of the Etna volcano. You'll also have the opportunity to take a tour of the craters created by the explosion of 1892, one of the most powerful events.
Later, we'll head to the city of Taormina. This Sicilian town is known for its Roman remains in an impressive theater overlooking Mount Etna. During the guided tour, you'll see the town's principal churches and monuments while learning more about its history. It won't come as a surprise that this Sicilian village has been nicknamed the 'Pearl of the Mediterranean!'
After the tour of the historic center, we'll leave you free time to stop for a drink or continue exploring Taormina at your leisure.
At the end of the tour, we'll return to the bus to go back to the starting point in Giardini Naxos, arriving about seven hours after the start of the excursion.
