Full description

Visit the two jewels of eastern Sicily, MountEtna and the beautiful Taormina, on a 4WD tour from Catania.

You will start by visiting Mount Etna Park, then head to Taormina and end the day with a short stop atIsola Bella.

During the experience you will enjoy a tasting of typical Sicilian products. It will be a unique day in which you will admire landscapes that are completely different, but equally wonderful.

What we will do

The appointment is set for 8.30 a.m. in Catania.

On board off-road vehicles, we will first head towards the Etna Park, which encompasses an extraordinary landscape surrounding Europe's highest active volcano. We will drive along dirt tracks in jeeps and penetrate into the woods. Meanwhile, the guide will tell us many interesting facts about volcanic activity and the surrounding environment.

Around lunchtime we will stop at afarm in Zafferana Etnea, where a tasting of typical Sicilian products and local wines (included) will await us.

Afterwards we will re-board the jeeps and head towards Taormina. Here we will have free time to visit the citadel and its most important monuments along the main street, where there are also numerous shops and craft workshops.

We will then head towardsIsola Bella, which is considered the 'Pearl of the Ionian Sea' and is connected to the mainland by a thin tongue of sand. Here we will be able to stop and take lots of photos, before returning to the off-road vehicles to return to Catania.

The total duration of the excursion is 8 hours.
