What You'll Do
  • Visit Mount Etna, the largest active volcano in Europe
  • Enjoy a typical Sicilian snack as you taste the wine at a Mount Etna winery
  • Explore the glamorous Mediterranean resort town of Taormina
Marvel at the spectacular views from Mount Etna and visit a winery to enjoy a Sicilian snack as you taste the wines. Spend the afternoon exploring the glamorous Mediterranean resort town of Taormina. Stroll along Corso Umberto or walk down to the sea.
What to Expect
From the port in Catania you’ll head out on a drive to the slopes of Mount Etna and its main visitor elevation to experience the lava fields and the incredible views from Europe’s highest and most active volcano.

On your full-day shore excursion you’ll continue on to visit a local winery for a typical Sicilian snack and wine tasting. You’ll then transfer to Taormina, Sicily’s world-famous resort town.

Enjoy a walking tour of Taormina, a hill village with a glamorous past. A drink at the tables of Caffè Wunderbar or similar venue in Piazza IX Aprile may set you back a few euros, but you'll be basking where Tennessee Williams and Elizabeth Taylor basked before you.

As well as the famed Greek-Roman theater there are several minor sites to be visited around Taormina. The attractive principal thoroughfare, Corso Umberto, is pedestrianized and ideal for strolling and window-shopping. Picturesque lanes above and below the Corso are interesting to explore, while if you want to stretch your legs further there are attractive walks up into the hills, or down to the sea.

Given its compact size, Taormina has a vast range of bars, cafés, and restaurants where you can while away the time and admire the views. There are 2 important gates in Taormina: Porta Messina and Porta Catania. Between the 2 gates you’ll find Corso Umberto Street, with its numerous bars, boutiques, pottery shops, and more. A walk along this street will immerse you in the atmosphere of Taormina.

What to Remember
Driver/escort Information:

We have customized this excursion using a driver/escort. A driver/escort is a chauffeur who specializes in driving guests around our amazing island. He is able to provide basic historical information and can show you the main highlights. He is knowledgeable and has a good general overview of the area.

Our driver/escort will do his best to ensure that you have adequate time at all stops and to accommodate special requests whenever possible. His aim is to make sure that your experience in Sicily is both memorable and enjoyable.

The driver/escort is not a licensed tourist guide. Licensed tourist guides are the only professionals permitted to conduct visits and tours at sites and museums within a city. He cannot escort you inside the monuments as this is not permitted under Italian regulations.

If you need a licensed local guide for a particular site you must pay a surcharge and we will arrange for the guide to meet you directly at the site.
