Following pick-up from your hotel or other location of your choice at a time to suit you, travel by comfortable air-conditioned car to Europe's highest active volcano. Enjoy stunning sea views on the drive through the picturesque villages of Sicily en route to Mt. Etna.

Arrive at the charming mountain town of Zafferana Etnea and take part in a tasting of authentic jams, honey and liquors from the region. Continue your drive to reach the plateau where the mountain hut of the Rifugio Sapienza is located, 2,000 meters above sea level.

Experience the unique atmosphere of the volcano and its lunar landscapes first hand. See the famous craters of Silvestri and purchase souvenirs made from lava at one of the many shops. Climb to an altitude of 3,330 meters by cable car (subject to an additional fee of €65) if you are feeling adventurous.

Then, get the opportunity to visit one of the best wineries at the foot of Mt. Etna. Descend the mountain and go to the Cantina Gambino to taste the superb red and white wines produced with the aid of the volcanic soil. Pair your wines with meat and cheese delicacies, vegetables, bread, olives and olive oil.
