Lunch – Mojo Alcantara

Afterwards, we will have lunch at a chosen restaurant.

Next, we continue driving towards the town of Mojo Alcantara to meet a small volcano on 800 m above sea level. Actually, the Mojo was born before Etna, about 600 000 years ago. Also, it is considered as a creator of the famous Alcantara Gorges.

With the same eruption, lava came to the nowadays town of Giardini Naxos. Eventually, we will make our last photo stop on the panoramic terraces above the Alcantara Gorges.
