Add To Plan

Your adventure begins with a transfer via private minivan to the helicopter terminal. On arrival, board your aircraft and allow the expert pilot to show you the dramatic beauty of Mt. Etna.

At more than 10,000 feet high and covering an area of 460 square miles, Mt. Etna is the tallest of Italy's mountains south of the Alps, and is the largest active volcano in Europe. Soar above the volcano, as well as the nearby homes, vineyards and orchards on your 30-minute flight.

At the conclusion of your exhilarating flight, rejoin your private van and proceed to Taormina. As you stroll along the main street, admire exterior views of elegant villas and palaces surrounded by vibrant gardens. Your half-mile walk continues with a guided visit of the Greco-Roman Theatre, which is renowned for its unique acoustical qualities. Then, enjoy lunch at La Baronessa or a similar restaurant.
