Description

Taormina is too far? Etna without a guide is boring? 
Don't miss out a special opportunity! Pick-up from your Hotel in Syracuse. In one day you will :
-visit with a naturalistic - geologist guide Mt. Etna;
-discover a lava cave;
- Taste a delicious Sicilian snack
-Stroll and visit the beauties of Taormina

In one day you have the chance to enjoy Etna and Taormina: our Volcano and the pearl of the Ioninan sea.
Pick-up at your accommodation in Syracuse or in the close vicinity at around 8.00 am in the morning.
The Etna and Taormina one day tour is divided in severals stops:

First stop : While walking through secular woods, eccentric craters and singular lava formations (usually the Sartorius Mountains or the craters formed in 2002 on the Northeast side of Etna), our naturalistic guide will introduce you to the fascinating world of volcanic phenomena.

Second stop : You will explore a cave of volcanic origin (such as the “Cave of the Thieves” or the “Cave Cassone”), provided with the necessary equipment (helmets and torches). In winter, caves can not be visited in occurrence of significant snowfall or ice presence at the entrance which would make the entrance dangerous.

Our guide will show you places from uncontaminated nature, where you can admire endemic species of plants and animals.

Third stop : If weather conditions allow you, you will have a snack based on typical Sicilian street food. Otherwise, lunch will be closed at a pretty mountain farm.

Fourth stop : In the afternoon you will arrive in Taormina where, by yourself, you can visit its elegant boulevard that separates the medieval gates of the city, Porta Catania and Porta Messina. You can admire, looking east, the breathtaking beauty of the Ionian coast and, on the other side, the majesty and grandeur of our Volcano.

You will be provided with a map containing all the information on the most important places to visit. The guide will be waiting for you at the entrance of the town (since it is mostly pedestrian area) to come back to Catania, scheduled around 6.30 / 7.00  p.m.

During the excursion, you will reach an altitude of up to 2000 mt (area of expertise of our naturalistic guides).
