Full description of the tour

The Unknown Etna Villages & Taormina is a special way to explore the island!

For this Etna and Taormina tour pick you up from the port at any time of your convenience and drive through different local villages of the Alcantara Valley.

Your first stop will be the Alcantara Gorges, Millions of years ago a lava eruption covered its river bed.

The magma, cooling off, formed prism basaltic high walls and the erosion of the river transformed it in a canyon. Between the high and black lava walls, flow limpid small lakes, cascades and small beaches.

You’ll then continue the drive to Francavilla, and visit the most charming and unspoiled old Sicilian village of Castiglione di Sicilia. Take the chance to visit the famous old Greek fortress, situated on the highest peak of Castiglione with a breath-taking view over the valley.

Take the Red wine-route! Literally driving through the lava from 1981, passing through the village of Linguaglossa, with its Baroque churches and delicious almond and nut pastries typical of the area.

*Upon request, we will stop for a brunch in “Gambino”  where you will enjoy a taste of the unique Etna wine, accompanied by a selection of local Sicilian products (optional).

Your tour continues to the historical center of Taormina, where you will have time to explore.

Visit the Greek-influenced villages for a beautiful memorie. At the end of this tour, we will drive you back to the port in order to arrive in perfect time to re-board your cruise ship.
