  • Stop at a laboratory that makes honey
  • Enjoy some free time to explore Taormina
Overview
Explore Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe, and the charming medieval town of Taormina on this day excursion from Catania. Experience Etna’s lunar landscapes and the boutique-lined winding narrow streets of popular Taormina.
What to Expect
Marvel at ancient craters and new lava, lunar landscapes, houses surrounded by lava, and breathtaking views on this full-day excursion to the Etna volcano. You’ll also visit the medieval town of Taormina, admiring views of Mount Etna and the Bay of Giardini Naxos.

The first stop will be the Sapienza refuge, which has escaped the fury of the volcano several times. Then you’ll continue on a pleasant excursion to see ancient craters and lava flows, lunar landscapes, and breathtaking panoramas. You’ll safely explore a volcanic cave, and then enjoy a tasting of typical Etna products.

Visit Taormina, with a stop to see the charming Isola Bella, the Pearl of the Ionian Sea, where the people of Siculi originally settled and the Greeks established their dominion.

Take a walk along Corso Umberto and the narrow medieval lanes, see the Greek Theater overlooking the volcano and the Bay of Giardini Naxos, and so some shopping in the pretty artisan shops or exclusive stores.
