Mount Etna and sicilian wine tasting
We meet and greet you on your arrival at the port of Catania. The journey from the port and along the scenic coastal highway to the foot of Etna takes approximately 30 minutes.
We will travel through traditional Sicilian villages and 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 crater 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 snow and ash.
Our journey will continue with the descent from Mount Etna along the famous “strada del vino” (wine road) which will lead us towards our chosen vineyard.
It has a reputation as one of the most renowned wineries on the west side of the island.
Here you will enjoy your wine tasting accompanied by local produce: cheese, salami, sun dried tomatoes, olives and bread.
The relaxing environment and knowledgeable staff coupled with stunning views across thousands of acres of vineyards makes this winery a winning combination. Your journey back towards the port of Catania will leave you reminiscing on the wonder of Mount Etna and the elegance of Sicilian wines.
Please note: This is a private excursion with a dedicated driver and vehicle. Wine tasting charged locally at €25 per person inclusive of gastronomic delights. On receiving your booking we will contact you to arrange pick up time and any special requirements you may have.
