wine tour of Sicily: Treno dei vini Etna 2016

 

There are different ways to reach Etna. If you’re planning to spend a vacation here, until December 1st, 2016, you also have another good (and especially tasty) way to see one of the most beautiful places in Sicily: it’s the Treno dei vini dell’Etna, a great idea for a wine tour in Sicily.

 

The Treno dei vini

A unique way to visit a unique place, starting from the city of Catania. In practice, it’s a picturesque train that will bring you along the slopes of the highest active volcano in Europe. And the Wine bus will allow you to discovery, in one day, some of the best vineries and (obviously) some of the best Sicilian wines.

 

A volcano to discover

  • Etna is a must-see place during every holiday along Sicilian east coast: the summit craters, the so-called Montagnola (literally, “small puntain”), the monti Silvestri, the valle del Bove (a large and spectacular valley), the caves, the Benedictine monastery of San Nicolò La Rena.
  • And, if you’re winter sports enthusiasts, the places where to ski on Etna are two: Nicolosi and Linguaglossa.
