About
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.

Mount Etna - seeing a real, live volcano... up close!
Sep 2020
This was an amazing full-day experience and well worthwhile. Our guide, Salvo, has a great command of the English language so communication was effortless. He's a relaxed and friendly guy, with a very good sense of humour, too. He's also very knowledgeable about Mount Etna and it's history. On our trip today, we were lucky enough that Salvo took us into a lava 'tube' and explained in detail about how it was formed.

If you don't have them on the day, walking boots and coats are available for hire for excursions to the 'top'.

If you're reading this, Salvo, thank you for a most excellent day out.

Great Day in Etna and Taormina
Excellent day trip with Luigi who was a fantastic guide, his enthusiasm for Etna shone through. The tour was well paced and 2 hours in Taormina was plenty of time to enjoy the sights.

Great tour guide. Taormina was beautiful!
Jul 2020 • Couples
Great tour. Was just us and the tour guide felt very safe - he was driving us especially up the windy roads up to etna and Taormina - and felt personal like we got our money’s worth. Taormina was beautiful fully recommend doing this excursion. We got 2 hours free time here so we grabbed lunch and had a walk around. Would have been nice to have an extra hour free time so we could go to the Greek theatre (as the restaurant we went to ended up being there for 1 hour and by time we knew it we only had 30 mins left until meeting the tour guide). Also the Greek theatre is 10 euro for an adult which we didn’t realise but as we had limited time left we didnt want to pay 20 euro for 20 mins of seeing it.

Etna and Taormina
Jul 2020 • Family
The tour was practically a private one, as due to the COVID crisis there were very few tourists. The guide was friendly, he drove safe, and told good stories. The trip does not include mounting to the top crater, that would have been 66 EUR extra per person.
Taormina was wonderful - especially now half-empty. There is great food there.
We did not stop at Isola Bella, at the end.

Fantastic Day
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 and souvenir shops. We decided to pay the extra and go to the top. Absolutely worth doing. It takes about 2hours but we went up by 4x4, the views and terrain are amazing. We then had a mountain guide at the top who spoke several languages, and takes you on a tour of a crater. As it was March, despite the temperature at the bottom being 24 degrees, it was freezing at the top and very windy with plenty of snow on the ground. So make sure you’re prepared. Thankfully we were and enjoyed a fabulous tour. We came part way down by 4x4 then the cable car. The tour then stops for a few minutes at a cave made by lava flow then onto a farm shop. In the itinerary it says farm but it’s more like a farm shop to us. But you can try wines, olive oils, olives, honey etc. No pressure to buy. Then onto Taormina which is beautiful. We had 2hours free time but as it was out of season that was enough time for us to get to the amphitheatre and have a stroll and snack. We then had a 45minute drive back to our hotel. Fantastic day, our guide was great and very informative just make sure you take appropriate clothing if you are going to the top of Etna. Just pack everything, if you don’t need it you can leave it in the mini van!
