We will go up by minibus along "Mareneve" road until we reach Etna Nord in Piano Provenzana. During the trip we will see different types of woods that change according to altitude, in particular the Etna’s birch wood, extending only on this side (1600 m - 1760 m a.s.l.). Here we will stop to visit Grotta della Neve, a perfect example of lava tunnel, famous for its economic importance related to snow storage and sale. After visiting the cave, we will reach the path that leads to craters dating back to 1865 eruption and visit Monti Sartori, an eruptive fissure inside Birch Wood which formed the so called “bottoniera” of mounds as well as an extended lava flow. After the trip you will reach Etna Nord in Piano di Provenzana at 1820 meters a.s.l. through the new road built after the disastrous eruption of 2002. After the trip we will drive back until we get to the Strada Provinciale connecting Fornazzo and Linguaglossa, where we will stop for a visit to Gambino winery and taste Etna wines with local food pairings.
In the afternoon you will reach the town of Taormina. You will be free to browse through its many shops offering local products and artifacts and even the most well-known fashion designer labels. The Greek Theatre is located no more than 2 minutes walk from the main entrance of Taormina.
