Description

The snow-capped peak of Mount Etna dominates Sicily’s sun-soaked landscapes. On this half-day outing, drive past coastal gardens and villages overlooking the sea, head inland to taste wine grown on Etna’s volcanic slopes and soak up the medieval charm of the hilltop village of Castiglione di Sicilia.

Climb aboard a comfortable bus in the centre of Taormina and set out down the coast into the province of Catania, passing by beachfront resort towns and historic villages such as Fiumefreddo di Sicilia before making your way towards the foothills of Mount Etna – the tallest active volcano on the European continent.

Pass through the towns of Piedimonte Etneo and Linguaglossa as you approach a renowned winery, located on volcanic soil that’s perfect for growing grapes. An expert leads you in an informative tasting of Sicilian varietals and describes the unique characteristics of wines grown in this rugged Mediterranean climate.

From there, continue on over ancient lava flows to Castiglione di Sicilia, a medieval village that dates back to the 11th century, perched high above the Alcantara Valley. Follow your guide to the Norman Church of San Pietro, past the baroque façades of centuries-old buildings and down cobbled lanes before your scenic return route to Taormina.
