“Mt. Etna Excursion”
We booked with Eddy of Legendary Tours for an Off-Road Etna Alcantara jeep excursion. Eddy was unable to escort us and sent another guide, Alfio, to pick us up at our hotel in Taormina. We met up with fellow guide Francesco and the people in his jeep and the six of us (plus guides) had a marvelous adventure. Mt. Etna had been active a few days before we got there, so there was much lava rock on the roads and around the towns. On the way to Mt. Etna, we stopped at various sites and learned about previous volcano eruptions, and also stopped by the destroyed ski station of Piano Provenzana which had a significant eruption in 2002. They are currently rebuilding the site, but not in the scale it once was. Anyway, our guides were terrific and they suggested we stop for lunch at this farmhouse and have a home cooked meal served family style. We absolutely loved the food, enjoyed getting to know the people we met on the tour - ate too much, as usual - and would recommend this off-road tour.
