PROGRAM

Day 1

The tour will begin with a same-day arrival at the Barone di Villagrande Wine Resort in Milo. The first encounter is a sight you will always remember. The 18th century palace appears amidst the vineyards and woods of the estate. The pool reflects the hills, the sky, the vineyards, and depending on the light and the sun, takes on the colour of green, blue, pink. From a height of 700 metres, the panorama runs over the vineyards, the hills, all the way to the sea at Taormina. A perfect experience among Etna's noblest vineyards.
In the evening, dinner is organised at the Barone di Villagrande restaurant, with five dishes from the tasting menu paired with a selection of five wines from the cellar. The daily seasonal tasting menu varies according to available products and requests.
Afterwards, sit back and relax in one of the rooms directly inside the Wine Resort.

Day II

After breakfast, head to Nicolosi, easily accessible by car, from where you will start your excursion to Mount Etna, Europe's highest active volcano.
This will be an excursion by cable car and jeep. Using the 'Funivia dell'Etna' (Etna cable car), you can easily reach an altitude of 2900 m (depending on the volcanic activity of the period) near the summit cones. From here, with the Alpine Guides, you will make a tour of about 45 minutes, from which, on a clear day, you can enjoy a view that sweeps from the Ionian coast to the interior of Sicily.
In the afternoon, you will return to Baglio di Villagrande where you will be expected to visit the winery with a tasting: a selection of five wines where each wine will be paired with a finger-food.
Overnight stay at the Wine Resort.

Day III

After breakfast, end of our services.
If you still have some free time left before your return, we recommend you spend it in the city of Catania. A thousand-year-old city on the east coast of Sicily, it enchants with its majestic Baroque architecture, lively street life and the imposing view of smoking Mount Etna in the background. From the authentic flavours of Sicilian cuisine to the black sandy beaches, Catania promises an unforgettable experience in the heart of the island.
