Overview

Sample the best of Sicily with a tour combining wine tasting, a village stop and views of Mt Etna from Taormina or Messina province. Taste Sicilian wines at a winery on the slopes of Mt Etna and find out how well it works with local dishes. Tour an ancient village that has spectacular views over the Alcantara Valley. And all the while, admire the impressive volcano looming over the landscape.
  • Wine tasting and village tour from Taormina or Messina province hotels
  • Enjoy a scenic journey along the Sicilian coast
  • Wine taste at an esteemed winery on the slopes of the largest volcano in Europe
  • Learn how the volcanic soil makes Sicilian wine so distinct in its flavor
  • Explore the village of Linguaglossa
  • Door-to-door service from your hotel
Begin your tour with a pick-up at certain Taormina or Messina province hotels, where you’ll board a comfortable coach for the drive on the eastern coast of Sicily.

As the coach turns inland, you’ll see the lower slopes of Mt Etna, the tallest active volcano in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Pass by beautiful scenery, including gardens and traditional villages such as Fiumedreddo di Sicilia and Piedimonte Etneo. Your first stop is the Gambino winery in the town of Linguaglossa. An expert in the unique wines of this area leads a wine tasting, during which you’ll taste both red and white wines and nibble on Sicilian cheese and olives. Learn how volcanic soil at this elevation lends itself to wines produced in this region as you enjoy exceptional views from the vineyard. After your wine tasting, continue driving up to the ancient village of Linguaglossa, a typical village on he slopes of mount Etna. The visit will start by admiring the Dome of Santa Maria delle Grazie, with its beautiful façade decorated with lava stone.

At the conclusion of the tour of Linguaglossa, you’ll get back on the coach for the return trip to your starting point in either Taormina or Messina province.

Nice excursion
Debbie P
, Sep. 2019
Lots to see on the ride to the Gambino Winery and the rest stop cookies and pastries were a welcome treat. The views of the vineyard and surrounding areas were just beautiful and the tour was interesting. There was plenty of wine to taste and the olives, cheese and bread served with the wine was delicious. This was an enjoyable and relaxing experience.

As others have said before, the Mt Etna in the title is a little misleading as we thought there would be more going up the mountain. But the scenery was lovely, wine tasting was good and all in all we had a good time.

We thoroughly enjoyed this trip, good wine, good company, only negative would be the half an hour in the mountain village which we found unnecessary and a bit of a waste of time.

Having the term mt etna on the discription is slightly misleading as we only saw it from the distance. The winery was lovely and I would recommend it but the village tour was just a stop in a depressing and fairly vacant town.

It was expensive for essentially a sip of four different wines, some bread and olives and a bus there. Friends had a much better experience booking directly at the same venue. I asked if I could have some cheese at first the tour guide said no and in the end I had to pay 7e and eat it in secret! Odd

A great afternoon at a winery at the foot of Etna- a family business called Gambino. The wines were excellent and served in generous amounts. The surroundings were fabulous once the fog cleared! The roads to the winery were very steep and winding but the driver handled them confidently. A short stop in a small village on the way back was a nice opportunity to see how the Italians live.

I would have given this tour a higher except for 2 things. One, they were a half hour late in picking us up. I understand that there was some weather issues the day before that may have delayed their arrival. But, all of their guests arrived on time. I am sure there was a way to inform us of the delay. Second, Viator did not tell us how many guests would be on the tour. I assumed it would be 10-15 as I have experienced on all the other trips I have booked. But, there was more like 30 people. All that said, the experience at the winery was fabulous. The wine was exceptionally good and the snacks complemented the wines perfectly. Our hosts at the winery did a wonderful job presenting the wines and providing information on all the local grapes and wines. I enjoyed the tasting so much that I purchased a couple bottles of wine.

Tour was excellent as were the bus driver and both guides, however its to much of a bus ride for a day trip. As for the tour itself absolutely wonderful, the guides are very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. The area is a must see while on vacation there.
