Overview of your Catania tour:

Join me on this spectacular journey through several villages up to 2000 mt. on the southern slopes of the Mount Etna! Observe the diversity of landscapes along the way: from crowded towns to cultivated orange and lemon plantations, vast vineyards and chestnut woods, fields of prickly pears until the ancient lava flows and barren moon landscape near the summit. I will tell you about volcanology but also about the vegetation and fauna of this volcano and the risks and the advantages of living on the slopes of Etna. Discover the myths and legends that the ancient Greeks imagined to explain themselves phenomenons like the eruptions. . .

Your Catania tour itinerary

We will pass several villages such as Zafferana Etnea and Santa Venerina to get to 2000 meter. There we can take an easy walk around the Silvestri craters ( it takes about 15 minutes ) or we can have a look at the souvenirs stores, or taste the local honey directly from local producers. In the bars you can find the typical liquors and you can also watch a video about the last eruptions. If you have time and interest, and the weather conditions allow it, we can take the cable car to go up to 2650 meters. Of course we can customize the tour according to your needs and interests focusing on the subjects you like the most.
