The Fire of Etna and the cuisine of Silvana: the most popular tour of Sicily!

MammaSicily brings you to the highest volcano in Europe between caves and trails, volcanoes and butterflies!

And most importantly, there is an unforgettable and refined Sicilian lunch, at the prestigious headquarters of MammaSicily, prepared exclusively for you by our chef Silvana Recupero.

Let's reveal the program:

h.10,00. Appointment at Viagrande and departure towards Piazzale Sapienza (2000 m a.s.l.). We will visit the volcanic craters of the Silvestri Mountains, the lava flows of the past, the ancient forests of Etna and a house surrounded by a lava flow!

h.13: 00. Visit the butterfly house in the Etneo town of Viagrande. You will see fascinating insects from around the world in a house full of butterflies!

Subsequently, at the headquarters of the Association MammaSicily we will taste a typical Sicilian lunch prepared by the "chef of Sicily", Ms. Silvana Recupero, and her staff. Lunch is only just cooked for you and served at the only table of the room!

After lunch we get back on track again to visit the Pineta Cubania: an extraordinary forest of Etna (1400 m a.s.l.). We will walk for about an hour to reach the summit of Mount Rinatu (1569 meters), from where you can see both the top of Mount Etna and the stunning Valle del Bove, a large and deep valley full of ancient volcanic craters!

h. 17:00. We will visit and explore the Cave of the Thieves, the most amusing of the lava caves of the Etna area.

Finally we will visit the Chestnut of the Hundred Horses (if we will not be late), the oldest tree in Europe, in the Etna park. And we will enjoy an almond granita, of course.
