Tour of Castiglione di Sicilia and wine tastings in local wineries.
Pick- up in the morning at your accommodation in Taormina and the surrounding area, or in a meeting point.
Visit of Castiglione di Sicilia, a medieval village located on a hill northwards of Etna. Walking through the cobblestone alleys of the city you can admire the Castelluccio, an ancient Byzantine castle, the “ U Cannizzu” tower, and the several old and characteristic churches. Castiglione has been ranked among Italy’s most beautiful Borghi. From the Belvedere it will also be possible to admire the magnificent panorama of the Alcantara and its basaltic rocks.
Stop at the first winery where you will taste some locally-produced Etnean wines. An aperitif based on local products will pair your wine tasting. You will have also the possibility to walk along the vineyards while learning all about winegrapes cultivation and production.
At lunchtime, you will move to the second winery. Here you will taste more DOP Etnean wines, accompanied by a complete typical Sicilian lunch. Afterwards, you will proceed with the visit of the winery, walking among the barrels where the wine you have just tasted is stored.
Return in the evening at the starting point.
