We cannot talk about Sicily without thinking of Etna, the great volcano of the island and the highest in Europe !.
By staying at Baroque Apartments you can take part in an exciting, indeed “volcanic” excursion to Mount Etna in a day.
The tour starts from Syracuse in the morning where we leave for Linguaglossa, a town on the slopes of the volcano. Here you can enjoy a second breakfast based on delicious Sicilian almond pastries and a granita (Etna is best explored with a full stomach!).
Immediately afterwards, the real walk towards Monte Nero begins, discovering the craters created by the lava bombs and the lava flows of 2002 and 1911.
After the picnic based on local products, included in the experience, we leave again for a visit to the cave of raspberries (one of the longest lava tunnels surrounding Etna) and the incredibly shaped rocks of the Dammusi Pass.
Finally you return along the Altamontana slope from which you can admire the panorama from the North Valley, where the view sweeps over the villages around the mountain and the surrounding hills.
Returning to Linguaglossa, you can end the excursion as you started it: with a nice fresh granita!
If, on the other hand, you want to extend your experience even further and discover the flavors of Etna, you can continue the day with a tasting of white and red wines at a local farm (activity apart from the excursion).
The charm of the volcano awaits you!
