Highlights of this tour
- Mount Etna
Your English-speaking guide, who is also your driver, waits for you at the cruise terminal. He holds a sign with your name on it. When you arrive at the private accessible van your guide helps you get into the vehicle as comfortable as possible. When everyone is ready your Savoca and Mount Etna tour begins.
The tour starts with a drive to the lovely little hilltop village of Savoca. It is one of the most beautiful villages in Sicily. The village was founded in the province of Messina. Enthusiasts of the Godfather movies can visit the locations of some famous scenes here. The bar where Michael Corleone comes to ask for the hand of the boss’s daughter still looks exactly like in the movie. The church where the wedding is filmed can also be found in this village. In contrast to Corleone, Savoca has changed very little compared to the previous century. Only the cars betray the here and now.
Savoca is still quite unspoiled. It has quiet streets, a peaceful atmosphere, and is surrounded by beautiful mountainous scenery and several fascinating old churches. Take a stroll along the blissfully peaceful street towards the church of Santa Lucia. This is where the Godfather’s son Michael married Appolonia in the movie, and relax with a refresher on the tiny square.
After your visit to the town of Savoca, the tour continues with a comfortable drive up the slopes of Mount Etna. Europe’s largest active volcano. It is a very active volcano whose lava flows and the craters of eruption can still be seen on the steep slopes. You get there by driving through vineyards and picturesque villages. To a height of 6,000ft above sea level. Mount Etna is not only the largest but also the volcano with the longest record of continuous eruption.
There you have some free time for exploring the extinct craters and lava flows before your guide brings you back to your ship.
