All about the trip
The "Exclusive Etna & Taormina Tour from Syracuse" will start with the Pick-up at your accommodation. Before reaching Rifugio Sapienza (1920 m a.s.l.) we will stop near a cave of lava origin, where you will enter with a helmet and a torch.
From here, you can choose to trek through a simple paths of the Etna Park, up to 2000 meters, or, alternatively, you can choose the option "Etna high altitude": with extra costs to be paid on site, through the Etna Cableway, and special 4×4 off-road vehicles, you will reach the Philosopher's Tower, at 2900 meters above sea level.
The tour will continue to Zafferana Etnea: the city of honey. Hereyou will have the opportunity to discover the secrets of honey processing. In the village square you will discover some of the typical culinary specialities of the area.
Immediately afterwards, you will leave for the beautiful Taormina. Situated on a promontory, from here you can enjoy wonderful panoramic views; there are two entrances, leading to the city centre: Porta Catania and Porta Messina. Along the medieval streets of Taormina every corner smells of Sicily: you can taste typical food, buy typical Sicilian souvenirs and observe the beauty of the sea.
