Description

Take the opportunity to see the wonderful Italian island of Sicily and experience unforgettable views of Europe's largest active volcano. Enjoy crossing the Mediterranean Sea by high-speed catamaran and visit the ancient town of Modica (from October to April) or Taormina (from May to Septmber) with plenty of free time to soak up the laid back atmosphere.

Get picked up from your hotel and reach the port of Valletta, where you board a catamaran for a 1 hour and 45 minute crossing, which affords incredible views looking back at Malta and forward to Sicily. Arrive at the port of Pozzallo and board a coach for the start of your discovery of this lush island.

On the way to Mount Etna, you stop for a delicious sampling of some typical Sicilian delicacies, including wines, almond sweets, and locally produced honey.

Get up close to the mighty Etna and stand overlooking the vast base of the volcano from the Sylvestri Crater. Learn from your guide about the devastating effects of its biggest eruptions, and the daily life of the villagers living in its shadow.

Sicily is a beautiful island. Taurmina is a gorgeous city. I plan to go back and stay for at least a week. Great tour and great guide.

Long day, but well worth it. Guide was informative and easy to understand. Pick up and drop off were punctual and efficient. Just know that there is a lot of walking (and a lot of hills) when you get off the bus. Gorgeous views and you get to go TO THE TOP OF A VOLCANO.
