As the holidays approach, you may be wondering which place you should go to ?
If you are looking for an adventurous trip in a spectacular landscape, volcano Etna and Sicily are the best destination for you and your family or friends. Etna volcano can be visited all year round. However, the most pleasant months with a nice temperature are May, June and September. So what are you waiting for to discover the most beautiful Italian island and its spectacular volcano and landscape?
Whenever you plan a trip, the first thing you need to do is to look for a place to stay.
Etna3340 offers a large range of excursions : treks, wine tour, helicopter tour, etc. Depending on what you're looking for, you can either choose to stay in Catania or Taormina.
If you want to visit Etna from the south, you can opt for the Etna Trek : a 10 km trail that follows Etna Natural Park's most devastating lava flow.
This is where you'll be able to admire one of Etna's most beautiful landscapes, where recent and historical eruptions have mingled with the legends and myths of the island. For this trip, we recommend staying in Catania.
This could be an opportunity to also visit the beautiful city of Catania, for a few hours. Catania is a rich and fascinating city between the sea and Baroque art.
As you walk through the streets of the historic centre, you will immediately notice the constant presence of a particular architectural style: the Sicilian Baroque, recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
Catania is a city with a very strong culinary tradition, characterised by incomparable flavours and aromas. There are countless specialities to enjoy in restaurants and on the street: the city is renowned for its street food.
The city of Taormina is closer to the activities of North Etna. From there, you'll be able to enjoy one of the island's best off-road driving excursion. This visit is a must because it offers spectacular views, easy hike and allows you visit one of the many lava caves in the area. You will also admire 8 craters of the Etna volcano and discover the different types of eruptions.
If you stay in Taormina, you can also take a moment to visit this unique city. Known above all for the ancient theatre of Taormina, this famous Sicilian city is located in a slightly mountainous position, but the presence of cliffs makes it descend to the east coast of the region. A sandy road connects it to the small but fascinating Isola Bella nature reserve. Not far from the city are also Giardini Naxos, the famous Mount Etna and the city of Catania.
Anyways, it is easy to move from one city to another to enjoy them both. Etna3340 can provide you with transfer solutions to enjoy excursions on the Etna volcano, in Catania and in Taormina have a pleasant and relaxing stay.
