Discover Etna, incredible Alcantara Gorges and Taormina.
We meet and greet you on your arrival at the port of Taormina/Giardini Naxos. Our journey begins through traditional Sicilian villages as we start our ascent of Mount Etna. On arrival at the South side of the volcano (Rifugio Sapienza) you will be greeted by a chillier climate and surreal lava covered landscape.
At 6000ft above sea level you can walk around the lower craters and take in spectacular scenery. You can enjoy free time wandering around the craters and lava tracks taking in the breath-taking landscape where displays of steam and smoke emerge through layers of lava and ash.
Our descent takes us through the Alcantara Gorges; here you will have the opportunity to visit this natural phenomenon as the surges and torrents of the River Alcantara has cut a dramatic gorge between the cliffs as it made its own way down to the Ionian Sea.
On arrival in Taormina Centre you will have some free time to wander the historic Corso Umberto; this is the main promenade
through the heart of Taormina boasting elegant designer shops and cute cafés and restaurants. Take in the botanical gardens, The Greek amphitheatre and
visit the fantastic Cathedral and the Palazzo Corvaja one of the most elegant buildings in this chic town. We leave Taormina and head back to the port,
our final photo stop at the panoramic Belvedere, offering breath-taking views it’s the ideal location to admire and take shots of the coastline and the fantastic Isola Bella. Your adventure would not be complete without an all-important Sicilian cannoli.
