Leaving this former diocese, the journey takes you through idyllic hilly countryside to a family-run vineyard, where you can enjoy a wine tasting.

In the afternoon, the EUROPA 2 takes you to Lipari’s neighbouring island, Vulcano, which truly lives up to its name. Steam rises out of fumaroles and you can take a thermal bath in the hot mud baths before heading off to Sicily and Mount Etna.

Immerse yourself in the lively goings-on in the streets of Taormina on one of Italy’s biggest holidays – Ferragosto (the Assumption of the Virgin Mary) – and enjoy the spectacular views of Mount Etna. Or take a trip by all-terrain vehicle* to the slopes of the volcano in the Valle del Bove, where lava flows have created a bizarre landscape.
