Overview
Italian driving can be nerve-racking for newbies, and Sicily’s winding mountain roads are seriously tough. Let the shuttle bus take the strain on this door-to-door guided tour that packs a whole bunch of Sicily into just one day: the Mount Etna active volcano, the historic resort town of Taormina, the wildlife refuge island of Isola Bella, and an organic farm, complete with tastings.

Highlights
  • Discover the active volcano Mount Etna and historic Taormina town
  • Upgrade for a cable car ride and crater tour with mountain guides
  • Explore a natural lava cave, an ancient Greek theater, and a wildlife reserve
  • Take things easy with door-to-door transportation from Catania
What to Expect
Your guide collects you from Catania and drives you up to Rifugio Sapienza, 6,300 feet (1,920 meters) high on the slopes of Mount Etna. Here you can choose to trek in the nature park or pay extra to ride the cable car. If you opt for the cable car and a 4WD minibus, reach the crater: your mountain guides can show you the spots where Etna is at her most active. After exploring a lava cave, stop at an organic farm to sample honey, olive oil, wine, and other typical Sicilian products. Then savor a swimming stop in the crystal-clear waters of Isola Bella (Beautiful Island), a wildlife reserve. Finally, discover beautiful Taormina, with its ancient Greek theater, wealth of medieval monuments, and exclusive shops. At the end of the day, the bus drops you back at your hotel, port, or train or bus station.

Amazing Day. We were picked up from our hotel in the morning. The company was so kind as we were not staying in central Catania, but as we were on the way to Etna they still agreed to collect us. The drive to Etna took around 45 minutes. When you arrive there are lots of cafes

The tour was well organized, our guide Salvatore was great. Special kudos to organizers for punctuality - it worked like a Swiss watch without inconveniencing the tourists. Etna was fantastic. Taking a hike at the Rifugio should not be an option - the upper (2900 m) craters are

Great tour that give you opportunity to climb Mount Etna and visit east coast of Sicily. Taormina was the most beautiful town we have ever seen. Our guide, Alessandro, was so knowledgeable, considerate and helpful. Both my husband and I are aged person, and I have knee problem.

Had a awsome tour with Federico. He is a great guide. Relaxed and easy going but very informative and knowledgeable. He had his future colleague Philippo with him and there were a perfect duo. Definitely recommend the tour and great guides we had.
