Highlights
    What to Expect
    Begin your tour with a pick-up at certain Taormina or Messina province hotels, where you’ll board a comfortable coach for the drive on the eastern coast of Sicily.

    As the coach turns inland, you’ll see the lower slopes of Mt Etna, the tallest active volcano in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Pass by beautiful scenery, including gardens and traditional villages such as Fiumedreddo di Sicilia and Piedimonte Etneo. Your first stop is the Gambino winery in the town of Linguaglossa. An expert in the unique wines of this area leads a wine tasting, during which you’ll taste both red and white wines and nibble on Sicilian cheese and olives. Learn how volcanic soil at this elevation lends itself to wines produced in this region as you enjoy exceptional views from the vineyard. After your wine tasting, continue driving up to the ancient village of Linguaglossa, a typical village on he slopes of mount Etna. The visit will start by admiring the Dome of Santa Maria delle Grazie, with its beautiful façade decorated with lava stone.

    At the conclusion of the tour of Linguaglossa, you’ll get back on the coach for the return trip to your starting point in either Taormina or Messina province.

    One of the best wine tasting tours I’ve done! The hilltop village setting was beautiful, and the owners explanations of their family vineyard operations and history were interesting. We sat at tables looking out to a stunning view, and the owners brought several bottles of wine
