Europe’s largest active volcano and man made works of art are available for you to enjoy this morning. Start with a short orientation drive through Messina, passing by Piazza Duomo with the Cathedral, Corso Cavour and Via Boccetta, as you head to Mount Etna, 62 miles away. Enjoy the views of the coast before reaching the scenic road which winds around the slopes of the mountain, passing the town of Giarre and the villages of Santa Venerina and Zafferana.


Mount Etna, Sicily's greatest natural attraction is also its highest mountain, soaring to over 10,800 feet - a volcano that has been active for over 2,500,000 years. You’ll stop at Cratere Silvestri, at about 6,397 feet above sea level. From here you can gaze out across the Catania Gulf and admire the view from this vantage point. But of course the major attraction is the crater and the remnants of the awe inspiring streams of lava.


Head to the town of Giarre, to visit GI VAL’s historic jewelry workshop located in an exquisitely decorated mansion set among landscaped gardens. Your gracious hosts will treat you to tasty Sicilian specialties and refreshments before you head down to the workshop to see how expert goldsmiths create unique pieces of jewelry. A visit to the exhibition room allows you time to shop before returning to Messina.


Need to Know:

Note: The uphill walk is approximately 650 feet from the coach parking to the crater area. We recommend you bring a windbreaker or light jacket as it can be windy and chilly at the top of the volcano.
