You must allow time to get to/from the port, see Optional transfers to/from port above.
On arrival at the port, you will check-in and board the catamaran. The crossing is estimated to take 1 hour 45 minutes. The Catamaran is equipped with restrooms, a very good cafeteria serving a variety of hot or cold snacks/beverages, and a small boutique/gift shop.

On arrival in Pozzallo you will be directed to your tour coach for the start of your Sicily tour. Our tour takes the eastern route before arriving at the first stop which is Taormina.
Taormina is a peaceful small medieval town, built on a mountain side and located 206m above sea level. Here you will have free time to enjoy the quaint streets lined with curiosity shops, boutiques and local tavernas. The Greek Theatre (entrance not included) is also worth visiting, even if it just to enjoy the views from this unique location. You will also have ample time for lunch before we depart (lunch is not included).

The tour then departs for Europe's most active volcano, Mount Etna.

The drive up the Mount Etna mountain slopes takes us through picturesque villages and an ever changing landscape. The lower slopes of the volcano are extremely fertile with groves of oranges, lemons and other Mediterranean flora and of course vines which produce Sicily's best wines. We go through forests of chestnut trees which gradually give way to oak, beech, birch and pine. During our tour of Mount Etna we visit the Sylvester Craters.

Our visit of  Mount Etna will take you to 2000 metres above sea level, stopping at Silvester Craters. If you would like to visit the peak of the mountain and there is enough time to do this (you must check with your guide first) optional cable car and 4x4 truck/jeep tours are available, cost varies from €30 to €60 per person depending on which option you decide to take.

We return back to the port of Pozzallo to board the Catamaran for our departure (which is scheduled at 2130hrs) back to Malta.

If you have booked transport from the port it will be waiting for you on arrival in Malta to return you back to your hotel/drop off point.
