Go back to
Sicily - Pozzallo, Mount Etna & Taormina
On arrival at the port you will check-in and board
the catamaran. The crossing is estimated to take 90 minutes, however
this can be slightly longer on occasions, depending on weather
conditions. The Catamaran is equipped with restrooms, a very good
cafeteria serving a variety of hot or cold snacks/beverages and a
small boutique/gift shop.
On arrival in Pozzallo you will be directed to your tour coach for
the start of your Sicily tour. Our tour takes the eastern route
before arriving at the first stop which is Taormina.
Taormina is a peaceful small medieval town, built on a mountain side
and located 206m above sea level. Here you will have free time to
enjoy the quaint streets lined with curiosity shops, boutiques and
local tavernas. The Greek Theatre is also worth visiting even if it
just to enjoy the views from the unique location. You will also have
ample time for lunch before we depart (lunch is not included).
The tour then departs for Europe's most active volcano, Mount Etna.
The drive up the Mount Etna mountain slopes takes us through
picturesque villages and an ever changing landscape. The lower
slopes of the volcano are extremely fertile with groves of oranges,
lemons and other Mediterranean flora and of course vines which
produce Sicily's best wines. We go through forests of chestnut trees
which gradually give way to oak, beech, birch and pine. During our
tour of Mount Etna we visit the Sylvester Craters.
We return back to the port to board the Catamaran for our return to
Malta which is scheduled at 2130hrs.
If you have booked transport from the port it will be waiting for
you on arrival in Malta to return you back to your hotel/drop off
