Magical Mount Etna and Beyond

The iconic Mount Etna is a hugely important part of the history and heritage of Sicily. At almost 11,000 feet tall, this active volcano seems to be everywhere you turn in the eastern towns of the island such as Taormina. We have a huge range of Mount Etna tours available but one of our favourite itineraries is shown below to give you a guide. Contact us to find out more.

  • Day 1: Start in either Catania or Palermo and meet your tour manager before transferring to your hotel

  • Day 2: Your first included tour takes you up to Mount Etna and the stunning hill town of Taormina. 

  • Day 3: Unearth the treasures of one of Sicily’s most enthralling historic cities, today, as you make the short journey to the once impregnable city of Syracuse. Enjoy a short orientation tour, then spend a fascinating few hours exploring – or perhaps enjoying a typically Sicilian lunch – under your own steam.

  • Day 4:  You’ll journey to the north-coast port of Milazzo, where you’ll board the ferry for the one-hour crossing to the glorious, volcanic Aeolian Isles, which rise out of the blue waters. 

  • Day 5: Day at leisure

  • Day 6: This morning’s included visit to Palermo will reveal the colourful, energetic island capital.

  • Day 7:  Make the most of your last full day at the hotel, or join today’s optional excursion on which you'll call, first, at Segesta. Continuing west, you’ll arrive in Erice, a historic mountain town whose narrow streets and hidden squares resonate with a sense of times past. 

  • Day 8: Head back to the UK
