A Must do in Taormina!
This was one of our favorite parts of our trip to Sicily. Not only did we get to experience the food and wine culture synonymous with Sicily we also had an amazing tour guide named Rosario!! To experience Mt Etna through the eyes of a local was very special. Tip: Must bring an appetite and pace yourself, there is no shortage of food on this tour!!
Amazing tour and delicious food
This is not a standard tour at all. We really enjoyed it so much. Location are off the beaten path and really authentic. Lots of organic wines and food locally produced. Ending in a pastry bar for sweets and liquors. Native guide shared with us local and unconventional stories. Etna landscape is breathtaking.
Highlight of our holiday in Taormina
Our excellent guide Rosario knew so much about the cultural and volcanic history of the area of Mount Etna and having witnessed major eruptions as a child had lots of anecdotal evidence. The scenery was great, the wine tasting experience and winery visit was amazing.
