The experience of a lifetime awaits today as you depart on your full-day private tour of Mount Etna, the tallest active volcano in Europe. Let the excitement encompass you as you ascend to the 1800 meters level. The day continues with a visit of some the area’s small villages like Santa Venerina and Milo. Stop just outside the small village of Milo at Barone di Villagrande Winery that has belonged to the Nicolosi family since early settler times. In 1727 a decree issued by Emperor Charles VI conferred privileges and the title of “Barons of Villagrande” to the Nicolosi family in recognition of their skill in the production of wines. Here you will relish an authentic Sicilian lunch and wine tasting, savoring recipes made with local and seasonal produce, much of which comes from the estate’s own organic garden. The farm lies in the heart of the D.O.C: Etna. Return to Catania in the afternoon.
