ETNA BY HELICOPTER 

Explore Sicily in a spectacular way, looking at it from above. You will enjoy an exclusive helicopter tour towards the Etna, the tallest active volcano in Europe. Prison to the monster Typhon and home to the forges of Hephaestus according to Greek mythology, its imposing figure has been a constant in the culture and folklore of the Mediterranean Sea. While you hover the Etna craters in your private helicopter, you will admire the pitch-black paths formed by lava flows descending down the slopes that witnessed centuries of volcanic activity.

MARSALA AND WINE TRADITION

Explore Marsala, the land of Wine and Salt Ponds. Set on the westernmost point of the island, this modern Mediterranean city saw the rise and fall of many cultures, each contributing significantly to the flourishing of a vast artistic heritage. You will visit a local winery and sip the exquisite Marsala Wine, discovering how the British sailors made it famous all over Europe since 1773. While vineyards occupy the entire city’s surroundings, the real protagonist of this landscape are the Salt Ponds, offering spectacular sights when at sunset they become tinged with red and pink or when the snow-white accumulations of salt appear.

WHAT TO EXPECT
