Please enter the message you'd like to send to Etna and Taormina Tour
The Etna and Taormina are among the main attractions of Sicily. The tour will give you the opportunity to visit both of them in a day!
The Etna, the highest mountain of Sicily (3340 mt), and its smoking peak can be seen from almost every part of the island and changes his appearance year after year because of its constant seismic activity. Although the volcano is active, it is possible to visit safely its four active craters located at its top, while at the slopes of the Volcano there are more than 300 lava channels born from small holes in the rock.
Departure from your accommodation (or nearby, there are several pick up points available) at around 7:00 am (this may slightly change depending on the pick up point).
Arrival in South Etna at the “Rifugio Sapienza” located at 1900 mt at about 10.00 am. There you will have free time to enjoy the various activities available, from more or less challenging walks that the highest active volcano in Europe offers to ski, guided walks up to 2100 meters (about 2 hours), go by cablecar and with off-road vehicles to a height of 3000 meters, accompanied by authorized guides (duration 2 hours), walking freely in craters at 1900 meters.
After the activities you can enjoy a lunch in a restaurant directly at the Etna.
In the afternoon the tour continues to Taormina, a pearl of the Mediterranean, suspended like a flowered balcony on the Ionian Sea and dominating the bay of Giardini Naxos.
Taormina is well known and famous among tourists and local people for its superb palaces and elegant squares, its climate, its flowery vegetation, and its panoramic position at 200 meters above sea level, at the foot of Monte Tauro.
You will be dropped off at Porta Messina, the old entrance of the Taormina, and will have free time to visit the historical centre, shopping for typical food or clothes along Corso Umberto, and to visit the beautiful "Ancient Greek Theatre of Taormina" with its stunning views of the Etna and the coast, from 2300 years until now, a renowned and active place of art and culture.

Booking Instructions and Policies
Once you send your Booking Request we will double check availability and confirm the booking. If the tour is no longer available or fully booked for the date you selected we will propose you an alternative date or similar tour, which you are free to accept or not.
Please make sure you tell us about your accommodation’s address (you can do that using the Special Requirements tab in the Booking Summary) so that we can assign the nearest pick up point to your booking and inform you about that. If we are not informed about your accommodation’s address we will automatically assign the main departure point. You will be able to change that up until 24h from the tour’s departure.
For some tours we may also need the full names, dates of birth and nationality of all participants. In those cases we will contact you and ask you to provide that information.
The payment of a Tourist tax (or local tax or Eco tax) may be requested depending on the tour destination. The amount of the Tourist tax is variable and depends on the tour destination (usually between 0,50 and 2 euro per person); the exact amount, if requested, is specified within the tour description.
Once we confirm the booking your data will be forwarded to the tour provider and you will receive a booking confirmation which will include the full pick up point address, pick up time and the tour provider’s contact details. You are advised to be at the pick up point at least 10 minutes earlier than the pickup time stated in the tour confirmation as the shuttle bus may arrive earlier to facilitate the pick up. In some cases the shuttle bus may instead arrive later than expected so it would be normal to wait even 10-15 minutes after the stated time.
