Duration: from 9.00 am to 6.00 pm.

First stop: Alcantara or Gurne Alcantara and Taormina
Our adventure starts on the north slope of Etna towards the river Alcantara. Its source reaches an altitude of 1250m. Thousand of years ago, the river bed was blocked by a lava flow that eventually crystallized, eroding a spectacular canyon. We will visit this paradise and we could go for a swim in its refreshing waters, so bring your swimsuit! The Gurne are 16 small lakes. The water jumps from one lake to another, giving rise to numerous small waterfalls.
Lunch: Lunch with typical Sicilian food.
Final stop: Taormina
After a short walk to orient you, free time for shopping or to visit the Greek Theatre.
