We booked a cruise excursion/daytour online, described as the "Etna Experience and Charming Town of Taormina" This tour did not disappoint!
We were met at the cruise port in Messina by Antonio. He was a fun, friendly, and informative tour guide, tailoring the tour to our desires/needs/expectations.
Our first stop was Zafferena Etnea, where we visited a local family farm with incredible array of local wines, honeys, olives, and olive oils.Onward to Mt. Etnawhere we ascended to 2500meters for a tour and stroll around the Silvestri Crater.
What a surprise when we made a stop in Ghiardini Naxos for canolis which he presented to us for consumption while taking in the wae-inspiring views of Piazza Belvedere!
Finally we took time in Taormina, a beautiful seaside resort town, with excellent shopping along the Corso Umberto.
I would highly recommend this tour for anyone on a cruise or with limited time in Sicily. Thanks Antonio!
