Mount Etna Half-Day Tour
From US$77.92
Towering Mount Etna is one of Sicily’s most popular tourist destinations, drawing many sightseeing tours daily. This tour stands out by including round-trip transportation, a guide, snacks, and an almond wine tasting at a mountain chalet. After a casual hike through lava fields and a visit to underground lava caves, you’ll come away having seen more of the volcano than most sightseeing tourists.
What to Expect
Begin your 6-hour tour with an optional hotel morning pickup in Taormina. Meet your guide and small tour group and get on the road for the roughly 75-minute journey to Mt. Etna.

Stop at the foot of the volcano and take a short hike across lava fields. Along the way, your guide tells you about Etna’s geological features and history.

Afterward, don a helmet and grab a flashlight to head underground into a lava cave, which you also explore with your guide. The last stop is a nearby chalet, where you lunch on a Sicilian sandwich, local wine, cake, and almond wine. Relax on the journey back to Taormina and finish the tour with a drop-off at your hotel.
