Full description
Europe’s highest active volcano is studied extensively by scientists and is popular with trekkers and nature lovers as well. Visit Mount Etna and the clifftop village of Taormina on this 11-hour excursion from Palermo.

From Crateri Silvestri you’ll take the funicular with a local mountain guide all the way up to 2,500 meters above sea level. From this point you’ll experience unforgettable panoramic views.

Just south of Taormina is the nature reserve of Isola Bella, and further south you’ll see the popular seaside resort of Giardini Naxos.

Visit the village of Taormina, a 45-minute drive from Mount Etna. Perched on a cliff overlooking the Ionian Sea, the village features an ancient Greek theater, many old churches, antique shops, lively bars and fine restaurants.

Wonderful excursion

It is an excursion with a driver, very friendly by the way, but that explains hardly anything because he is not a guide. He took us to Etna and there we were an hour and a half. In Taormina three hours to see the town and have lunch. The theater of Taormina already deserves the excursion. Picking you up from your hotel / apartment and returning you to the same place is already a plus. In addition the driver was very punctual and attentive

Wonderful, knowledgable guide, Michael, who kept us entertained and educated throughout the day. I was surprised at how smooth the ride was to the other side of the island and how good the roads are - it is vitally a continuous motorway viaduct. Having experienced Corsica and Crete it was a welcome relief! Etna and Taormina were a revelation.
