Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Craters Silvestri of Mount Etna, 95030 Nicolosi, Sicily Italy

You will meet your driver at the port exit gate. He has a displey with your name written on it…After leaving the pier with your local driver, the road will wind around the slopes of the mountain, before you reach the Silvestri craters at about 6.000 feet above the sea level. To the ancient Greeks Mount Etna was the realm of Vulcan, god of fire.

At approx. 3.350 m ( 10,922 ft ) it is Europe’s highest and world’s most active volcano. Previous eruptions have devastated Catania with the lava reaching the sea on several occasions.

Continue with the drive to Taormina but first you will make an exciting stop to visit a winery in the lava of the Etna volcano.

Here you will have a guided tour of the winery, a lunch with typical Sicilian products of this area and a guided wine tasting (it’s price euros 45,00 at person).

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Azienda Vinicola Barone di Villagrande e Cantine, Via del Bosco 25, 95010 Milo, Sicily Italy

Here you will have a guided tour of the winery, a lunch with typical Sicilian products of this area and a guided wine tasting (it’s price euros 45,00 at person). The cost of this experience is not included in the price of the driver service and must be paid directly to the owner of the winery. Very important is to book this experience in the winery 10 days before and you can not do the cancellation but the cost must be paid to the driver for a penalty, I recommend not to cancel because this is a beautiful experience., Sicily’s most picturesque town and best known resort located its all year round mild climate, its preservation of local culture, ancient history and its perfect modern organization.

Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

Stop At: Taormina, Taormina, Province of Messina, Sicily

Sicily’s most picturesque town and best known resort located its all year round mild climate, its preservation of local culture, ancient history and its perfect modern organization.
Visit free the ancient theatre, Taormina’s most remarkable monument and one of the most celebrated ruins in Sicily.Of the case of bad weather conditions is not possible to visit the volcano. We will make a personalized program change for your wishes, for example: visit of the coast of the Cyclops or tour of the Godfather to Savoca in a private house at the entrance of the village is the Bar Vitelli, which features a collection of local artisans’ tools and photographs taken when Francis Ford Coppola was in this area filming scenes for The Godfather II.
Remember that travel times on small Sicilian roads are slow. To visit many sites I recommend taking small breaks but our driver is at your disposal and if you prefer to make a few visits but with a lot of relaxation, it’s ok for us.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
