Taormina, the ancient Taurominum, is a spot of
infinite loveliness, the land of Dolce far niente - of sweet do
nothing. The town lies in an elevated position of amazing, almost unique
beauty, affording magnificent views combining sea and sky of a
marvelous blue, miles of a curving coastline and picturesque mountain
scenery, while the majestic pyramid of Mt. Etna on one side constitutes a
scene of indescribable beauty. Upon arrival we will visit the most
impressive monument of the city: the Greco-Roman Theatre.
It has the finest site of any theatre in the world and one of the most
striking monuments of antiquity. We continue our walking tour to the Villa Comunale:
the public gardens which are planted with a huge variety of flowering
plants and shrubs ranging from the most common to the exotic, your guide
will be able to describe you all the botanical curiosity.
Mt. Etna is Sicily's
tallest peak and one of Europe's most famous active volcanoes, in the
20C, the most violent eruptions took place in 1910 leading to 23
additional craters being formed, in 1928, a lava flow destroyed the
village of Mascali and other eruptions followed in more recent time in
1981, 1983, 1985, 1991-92, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005. Upon arrival we will
visit the area of 2.000 mts (6.000 ft) with the Crateri Silvestri.
In a full day escursion we can ascent to the top by funicular and 4x4
wheels drive: on the slope of the central crater at around the 3.000 mts
(10.000 ft) mark, in the vicinity of the former Torre del Filosofo
where a refuge was destroyed by lava. There are four craters: the
south-eastern crater, the immense central crater, the north-eastern
crater and the Bocca Nuova (New Mouth) which has been the most active.
