On this half-day or full-day private excursion to Mount Etna, Europe's tallest active volcano, you will stop at a vineyard to taste the fine wines produced on the eastern side of Sicily.
Mt. Etna, the tallest active volcano in Europe and one of Italy's most recent UNESCO World Heritage sites, is located between the enchanting cities of Catania and Messina on the spirited island of Sicily. This lively volcano has been erupting since 1500 BC, leaving the neighboring lands lush and particularly receptive to a culture of agricultural superiority. In fact, the land's wine and food production continues to win the most prestigious Italian and international awards year after year.
Departing from your hotel in Catania or in Taormina, you will visit the active volcano with your driver and English-speaking guide, exploring the mountain's volatile past and still treacherous present. The full-day excursion also includes a stop at a nearby vineyard, where you will sample wines grown in the rich volcanic soil, accompanied by regional specialties like ricotta infornata (baked ricotta cheese), salami, artichokes in olive oil, homemade bread, and many other delicacies.
This introduction to Sicily's Mt. Etna region will satisfy all of your senses. You will smell the countryside that makes the area's wines, the traditional foods of Mt. Etna, and get close enough to touch an active volcano. Finally, you will hear your inner thoughts saying you can't wait to discover the rest of Sicily!
