ETNA IN THE LAND OF CYCLOPS

Etna tour in the land of the cyclops
Etna tour in the land of the cyclops

Our experience begins from the legendary land of the Cyclops: Acitrezza, place where the events took place between Odysseus and the terrible cyclops Polyphemus but also land of the most romantic and sad love story of Greek mythology between Aci and Galatea. Not everyone knows, however, that from here began the first volcanic eruptions and the famous sea stacks of Acitrezza are witness. Our local guide will accompany you with his stories and anecdotes for the duration of the excursion. To follow we will go up the slopes of the volcano where we will discover the magnificent lunar landscapes of Etna.
