An air-conditioned coach will transport you to the Alcantara Gorges. This is an impressive natural sculpture. Thousands of years ago the riverbed was blocked by lava flow from Mount Etna, and as the lava cooled more quickly than the water it crystallized. Tall columns of lava have since stood here and as the river eroded through the lava it has created a series of impressive gorges. Don’t forget your camera!
The next stop is the town of Randazzo in the province of Catania. Situated at the northern foot of mount Etna, it is the closest habitation near the volcano. You will view the famous cathedral made from lava and the bustling market.
From here you will ascend Mount Etna by coach. You will have time for lunch in one of the many cafés or restaurants. Once at the top of Mount Etna you will have the freedom to explore individually or as a group.
This is the highest and most active volcano in Europe. Since the first eruption about half a million years ago, Etna has attracted artists, poets and travelers alike by its unique beauty. Hiking to the top of Etna is a once in a lifetime experience. You can trek to the main craters or reach them by jeep. At the end of the tour you will be driven back to Taormina where the tour ends.
