Your Italy Tours

This day is to explore Etna but in a different way. through typical Sicilian villages on the slopes of Mt. Etna, while tasting several Sicilian products on the way. Meeting you at the port of Messina, we will take you through different local villages of the Alcantara Valley. We will visit the Alcantara Gorges, with their wonderful waterfall created from an old Etna lava eruption- We then continue the drive to Francavilla, and visit the most charming and unspoiled old Sicilian village of Castiglione di Sicilia and of course the several lemon, orange and olive groves as well as the Etna grapevines.

You have the chance to visit the famous old Greek fortress, situated on the highest part of Castiglione with a breathtaking view over the Alcantara valley. We will take the Red wine-route, literally traversing the lava of 1981, passing through the village of Linguaglossa, with its mass of Baroque churches and delicious Almond and nut pastries typical of the area. Here we will enjoy a short stop to try some these fine local products in a traditional pastry shop before heading to the well-known winery “Gambino” to tour the property and the wine cellar and of course have a taste of the unique Etna wine, accompanied by a selection of local Sicilian products. We start our customized day tour from your lodging and drive around our beautiful Mount Etna volcano, stopping at several ancient Sicilian villages and driving through the “red wine route” called “Mare-Neve”. We will visit along our way several wineries, such as “Murgo” company, “Gambino”, “Cottanera”, “Torrepalino” and so on… which are the most famous and well known Etna wine producers.
