Overview
Discover Mount Etna on an 8-hour shore excursion from Taormina Port, and ascend to a height of approximately 9,500 feet for panoramic views of Sicily and the Mediterranean. Immerse yourself in the scents and natural sights of Europe’s largest volcano.
What to Expect
Take a full-day tour to see the natural splendors of Mount Etna, Europe’s largest still-active volcano.

You will be picked up from Taormina-Giardini Naxos Port for the drive to Etna Natural Park-South Side at Rifugio Sapienza. Upon arrival, explore the Silvestri craters by the parking lot, with the option to ascend to the very top on the Funivia dell’Etna cable car. Admire the beautiful volcanic landscape, full of the rich sounds, scents, and colors of nature, and see lava fields and steaming vents.

There are 2 options for your ascent. You can climb to an altitude of 8,200 feet (2,500 meters) from Rifugio Sapienza to Montagnola. Upon arrival, hike around the volcanic landscape, or relax with a cappuccino at the bar, and take in the panoramic views.

The more adventurous can continue to a height of 9,580 feet (2,920 meters) on board the Uni-Mog mini-coach from Montagnola. Drive up the dirt roads to a height of about 9,190 feet (2,800 meters) before walking the last stretch to the summit. Marvel at the volcanic amphitheater of the "Valle del Bove," and see typical tunnel caves.

Know Before You Go
• Please note that drivers will provide basic historical information and can show you the main highlights along with top tips on local sites. They will take care to give you adequate time at all stops and accommodate special requests where possible. But the driver is not a Licensed Tourist Guide. Licensed Tourist Guides are the only professionals - with a regional license - permitted to conduct visits and tours in all sites and museums within a city. Your driver cannot escort you inside the monuments because this is not allowed by Italian law. If you require a licensed guide you must pay a surcharge and arrangements will be made for one to meet you directly at the site
• From March-May and October-November wear winter coats and sturdy shoes or hiking boots. From June-September dress in layers and bring a waterproof jacket
