Never silent, the volcano provides great sights and extraordinary moments; no wonder it was declared UNESCO heritage in 2013. The extreme environmental diversity of the whole area is surprising: thick forests, deserted lands covered in magmatic rock, snow-clad peaks and slope-clung towns make for a unique landscape.

Wine Tasting

A local wine tasting experience is getting more and more exclusive today. The local terroir is popular for its uniqueness and is characterised by small, niche wine producers; viticulture in the Etna region thrives on the unparalleled features of the soil in terms of mineral content and climatic and geologic diversity. The wine and volcano have been linked for a very long time and we will be delighted to organise cellar wine tasting for you to discover the territory through its wine.

Boat Tours

Our coast is one of the world’s most beautiful and fascinating. We are thrilled to give you the chance to experience our sea on board of a sailboat or a yacht. There are many ways to experience a day out at sea, including having a light lunch by majestic sea stacks or sipping an aperitif with views on Etna in the pink light of sunset at sea.
