Swap the sights of Messina for a day out at Mt. Etna and Taormina on this 7-hour shore excursion. After a scenic drive along the Sicilian coast, you’ll spend time at the famous volcano and soak up the views over the natural park. Visit a winery, stop for photos at Crateri Silvestri, then while away the afternoon in pretty Taormina, seeing the Greek Theatre, Palazzo Corvaja, and more.
  • 7-hour Messina shore excursion to Mt. Etna and Taormina
  • Visit Mt. Etna and admire vistas over the surrounding natural park
  • Call in at a winery to sample wine and produce from the region
  • Pass through Giarre town and Crateri Silvestri
  • Enjoy an afternoon of relaxed sightseeing in Taormina
Leave the Port of Messina at 8:30am, and travel away from the city toward Mt. Etna, Europe’s highest and most active volcano. Your journey takes in a scenic road, which lends itself to sweeping views of the Sicilian coast.

As the sea dips out of sight, the views from your window are replaced with natural park landscapes and lava fields that speak to Mt. Etna’s fiery past. Hop out of your vehicle to explore the volcano area, and soak up the sights. If you want to save your legs the effort, you can head up the mountain by cable car at your own expense.

Later, you’ll leave Mt. Etna for the sights of Taormina, stopping at a winery along the way. Sample famous local wine along with delicacies that are typical to the region, and then continue through Giarre town and the lunar landscapes of Crateri Silvestri.

Spend your afternoon exploring Taormina and its history-rich center. After an alfresco lunch at a café (own expense), you’ll discover the ancient Greek Theatre, then head to a vantage point that looks out over the Bay of Naxos and Mt. Etna. Visit medieval Palazzo Corvaja and stroll along Corso Umberto, then return to Messina to shop or visit the cathedral. You’ll finish with a drop-off at the port around 5pm.
