The Travel Agency "Lisciotto Turismo" has prepared two options for the social excursion. Both options will take only half day for the excursion and the participants will be back for lunch time. For those having the flight  in the early afternoon, there is a possibility to organize a transfer directly at the end of the excursion to the airport of Catania.

Unfortunately, Italian regulations do not allow us to use public funds to cover social activities. On the other hand, we kept a low registration fee which does not cover social activities to give to our participants the possibility to choose whether to participate the excursion or not.

  • VOLCANO ETNA - € 87,00 per person –

h. 08.00 am – 2.30 pm
We will depart from Elihotel by bus and proceed South on the highway, exiting at Giarre. From there we will continue inland on a panoramic road winding up the slopes of Mount Etna, passing by the villages of Zafferana and Santa Venerina and across woods of chestnuts, hazelnuts, fertile fields and vineyards. The road cuts through large areas of solidified lava, remnants of past eruptions, and allows you to admire the black petrified rivers descending from the top of the mountain.
Once we arrive at the Silvestri Craters, at an altitude of 1900 meters, we will begin our exciting climb towards the summit of the volcano, first by cable car and subsequently by four wheel drive minivans. We will reach an altitude of about 2900 meters above sea level (8800 feet), close to where the most recent crater opened, and will proceed on foot for a short panoramic walk in the area of the craters.
We will then return to 1900 meter altitude where you can spend some free time before returning to Sant’Alessio
