A day tour from Catania to explore Etna and Taormina with a private driver at your disposal. During this private excurision, you will also have the opportunity to taste typical Sicilian wine and local product.
Your day will start from the centre or port of Catania where you will meet your private driver who will first accompany you to the slopes of Etna. Here you will be able to enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding landscape that has been sculpted this volcano, the largest active volcano in Europe. In fact, from the southern slopes of Mount Etna, you can still see signs of the most recent volcanic eruption here in 2002. Before leaving the area you will have the opportunity to stop in a wine cellar to enjoy some typical Sicilian products and locally produced wine (please note that it is not included in the price).
Then, you will be accompanied to Taormina, a resort famous for its culture and chic atmosphere. You can sit at the Wunderbar Café or other venues on the Piazza XI Aprile where the likes of Tennessee Williams and Elizabeth Taylor have sat before. Alternatively, you could visit the Greek-Roman Theater (ticket price not included) or generally discover the wealth of interesting places around the city.
The main street of Taormina, Corso Umberto, epitomises the chic atmosphere of this city. With its eye-catching shop windows, narrow side streets, and glamorous bars, this is the ideal place to stroll down and really immerse yourself in the city. Enclosed by Porta Messina and Porta Catania, this street is unlike any other. Alternatively, if you prefer nature, you can go for a long hike on the hills or by the sea which both offer astonishing views of the local landscape.
