One-day tour of Mount Etna, the fire mountain called by local people “Mongibello”, a name derived from two words, a Latin word and an Arab word, which both mean “mountain”. This name is the synthesis of the entire history of this area of Sicily, written by different peoples and civilizations. One of the incredible things about Mount Etna, included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site list, is a cave located on the northern slope of the volcano which is known as “La Grotta del Gelo” since it is the only one on Etna where you can find ice all year round.

Your driver will pick you up at the entrance of your hotel in Taormina, Giardini Naxos, Recanati or Letojanni and you will be travelling on a comfortable vehicle, while admiring the most picturesque and fascinating places of Sicily, such as the lovely towns of Zafferana Etnea, known for the production of Zagara honey, and Santa Venerina, with its many vineyards.

Then, you will reach Rifugio Sapienza, at an altitude of 1.900 metres. Here you will see an amazing lunar landscape and wild nature and you will have the chance to take amazing pictures and share them on social networks.

You will be walking along the edge of the Silvestri Craters, some inactive craters dating back to 1892.

From the viewpoint of the Valle del Bove, a volcanic depression with walls up to 1,000 meters, you will have the chance to admire an incredible landscape dominated by the sea.

Late in the afternoon you will get back to Taormina.
