6 DAY MT ETNA & TAORMINA TRIP

OCTOBER 9-14, 2025
Total Price: $3075 p/p

Join us for the best of Sicily! We will explore Mt Etna by jeep and cable car to see the active volcano up close and hear about its history. Then we’ll visit two local wineries that currently grow grapes in volcanic soil and learn how this type of environment makes their wines unique. Next, we head to the beach to relax and visit the historic town of Taormina that was also most recently featured on the popular tv show, White Lotus. We will explore the adorable town with a food and wine tour that also includes a visit to the famous Greek theater.

This trip backs up to our trip to Malta for a beautiful two weeks in Europe!

Fun Facts About SICILY

MT ETNA

Sicily is home to one of the most active volcanoes on earth, which has been spewing out lava since 1500BC. Its last eruption happened in June 2014, when molten lava, hot rocks and steam began to flow out of a new crater on the southeastern slope

Granita

Ice cream for breakfast! A creamy sorbet-style dessert called Granita is scooped into freshly baked brioche and eaten as a morning treat that is light and refreshing in the warm summer weather. It comes in dozens of delicious flavors.

Island

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean. With an astonishing 600 miles of coastline, it takes an estimated 3½ hours to cross the main island from East to West, and 2½ hours to cross from North to South.

Sicilian

Around 70% of people living in Sicily speak Sicilian, and not Italian. It may surprise you to know that Sicilian is so different to Italian that it could be a language in its own right. Although it is referred to as a dialect, many Sicilians beg to differ.
