The Circumetnea train

On our trips in Sicily, we have the chance to travel around the base of one of the world's tallest active volcanoes, Mount Etna. Here, we travel on the Circumetnea, a narrow gauge railway, opened in 1898, that travels from Catania to Riposto, and offers spectacular scenes of the volcano. Mount Etna is one of the most active volcanoes in the world, and on occasion it produces smoke rings, which are extremely rare. Mount Etna also features prominently in Greek mythology, as it was thought to be where Vulcan, the god of fire, kept his Smithy.

Sicily and The Aeolian Islands

“A busy tour with many varied experiences. Palermo’s amazing Norman churches and castle: drinks with the Countess after being shown around her palace: train journeys along the rugged coast : boating among the Aeolian archipelago: Taormina’s stunning beauty and Greek theatre: walking in the ashy snow and smelling the sulphur near the top of Mount Etna followed by a trundle in a metre gauge railcar round its base. All topped off with tasty Sicilian food and wine…

“Outstanding tour manager; great local guides; two brilliant agriturismo visits (one near Siena, the other in Sorrento). Huge potential for things to go wrong during such a long, involved trip - nothing did go wrong for me.
