Shore excursions in Italy ,Daily Tours and guided Limousine services.
We had an awesome day with Claudio our driver. He collected us promptly and took care to find out what we expected to get from our trip and made sure that he exceeded these expectations. He called ahead to book a trusted private tour guide who was waiting for us on our arrival in Pompeii - he was fantastic! And then we drove on to Sorrento, stopping at various places on the Amalfie Coast to take photographs and then we had a late lunch in Il Positano, before returning to Rome. Travelling with two young daughters, it was a long day trip, but memorable - and we all thought it was our best day of our week-long holiday to Rome.

After leaving the pier with your local driver guide, the road will wind around the slopes of the mountain, passing the town of Giarre and the village of Zafferana before you reach the Silvestri craters at about 6.000 feet above the sea level. To the ancient Greeks Mount Etna was the realm of Vulcan, god of fire.

At approx. 3.350 m ( 10,922 ft ) it is Europe's highest and world's most active volcano. Mt Etna is noted for the wide variety of eruption styles and it is at its most spectacular when both summit and flank eruptions occur simultaneously. It is monitored by 115 seismic activity stations spread around the mountain and it is under constant satellite surveillance. Previous eruptions have devastated Catania with the lava reaching the sea on several occasions.

Continue with the drive to Taormina, Sicily's most picturesque town and best known resort located on the terrace of Mt. Tauro. Since the end of 19th century Taormina has become a world famous international resort whose visitors are, time after time, captured by its charming atmosphere, its natural unspoilt beauty, its all year round mild climate, its preservation of local culture, ancient history and its perfect modern organization.

Visit the ancient theatre built by the Greeks and enlarged by the Romans and enjoy a beautiful view of the Naxos bay and Mount Etna. Continue to Palazzo Corvaja the most important medieval mansion in the city that presents Arab, Gothic and Norman features. Named after the Corvaja family, one of the oldest families in Taormina, this medieval building now houses the tourist information office and a museum of Sicilian arts and crafts.

Highlights:

- Spectacular panoramas
- Mount Etna
