Visit Europe’s largest active volcano before sampling some of the local wines and cheeses within a quaint Sicilian winery. Your exciting day will begin with a short sightseeing tour of Messina on board your motorcoach. Your 2-hour panoramic drive up Mt. Etna is along the highway, climbing the scenic lower slopes through the ever-changing scenery of lemon groves, vineyards and pine woods that blend beautifully with the hardened lava. Reach 6,200 ft. up to the Silvestri Craters with the 2001 and 2002 lava flows, which embraced Rifugio Sapienza. Enjoy free time for photographs before arriving at the local winery. The farm's wine expert will take you on a guided tour around this quaint farm house and have you taste some local wines as he explains the wine making process. A buffet lunch of typical Italian food will be served.
Minimum age for wine tasting is 18 years. Comfortable walking shoes and warm clothing recommended. High altitude may affect guests with heart problems.
