Experience the lava fields of Mt. Etna, Sicily’s brooding volcanic mountain on an 8-hour scenic tour from Naxos Port. Continue to a winery to sample wines fertilized by the volcanic soil, and end with a stroll around the artistic town of Taormina.
What to Expect
See and taste the best of Sicily on a full-day shore excursion from Taormina, the fabled resort town loved by artists, writers, and filmmakers for decades.

Following a pick-up at Taormina-Giardini Naxos Port, you will drive to Etna Natural Park at the southern slopes of the Rifugio Sapienza. Admire the volcano as it looms above you. A 2-hour drive takes you to the main visitor elevation to experience the lava fields up close. See evidence of eruptions from as recently as 2002, then head to a local winery on the volcanic slopes.

Savor typical Sicilian snacks and taste wines fortified by the rich volcanic soil. Then, drive into the historic heart of Taormina to spend an afternoon at leisure wandering the artistic streets. Experience the magic of the laid-back resort town with a drink at the Caffè Wunderbar (or similar) in Piazza IX Aprile. It may set you back a few Euros, but you will be basking where Tennessee Williams and Elizabeth Taylor went before.

Visit the Greek-Roman Theatre to enjoy sweeping vistas of the Bay of Naxos and Mount Etna. Back in the town center, stroll down Corso Umberto to window-shop the boutique stores. Dive down the picturesque lanes above and below the Corso, and if you want to stretch your legs further, take a scenic walk up into the hills. For those that prefer to just relax, Taormina has a huge range of bars, cafés, and restaurants for its compact size.
