Know More about this tour

After a pickup from your Messina province or Taormina hotel by coach, start your full-day tour with a scenic drive through the countryside and the lush green hills of the Peloritani mountain range. Observe the traditional pastoral lifestyle of this part of northeastern Sicily as you pass through typical little villages and enjoy commentary from your guide.

Your first stop is a dairy farm, where youll see the traditional way of making Sicilian cheese. Enjoy a tasting of the farm's fresh ricotta , paired with chunks of fresh bread. Continue to Montalbano Elicona, a rustic medieval village that clings to a nearby hilltop. Enjoy free time to wander the narrow cobblestone streets, have lunch and perhaps visit the 13th-century castle built by Emperor Frederic II (meal and entrance fee at own expense).

In the afternoon, make your way to the Argimusco nature park to see large megalithic rocks from prehistoric times. Travel back in time as your guide shares stories about these fascinating stones, shaped like animals and people.

From the lookout point at 4,593 feet (1,400 meters) in elevation, enjoy a magnificent view of Mt Etna, the distant Aeolian Islands and the wooded Peloritani hills below. Then, relax on your journey back to your Taormina or Messina province hotel.
