5. Messina Shore Excursion: Private Trip to Taormina & Etna
Experience an unforgettable day climbing one of the most active volcanoes in Europe. Visit one of the pearls of the Mediterranean, Taormina.
Disembark at the port of Messina to meet your driver. Begin your private excursion by climbing Mount Etna. It is the highest volcano in Europe and one of the most active in the world. It has also been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2013.
Be driven up to 1800 meters. From there, explore the Silvestri Craters and its lava-covered slopes. Continue onward to Taormina, perched on a terrace overlooking the sea. Considered the "Lady of the Ionic Coast", it has historically been a destination for celebrities.
From this hilltop town, enjoy a splendid landscape, dotted with colorful coves interspersed with Mediterranean scrub and sea. Visit the ancient theatre in Taormina, one of the greatest of the Greek-Roman era, and afterward immerse yourself in the city.
Return to the parking area in Taormina to head back to the port of Messina with your driver.
