The Taste of Etna is the ideal excursion for those who want to fully enjoy the typicalities of volcano. It will be an opportunity to tread new paths and sample new flavours. We will set off from the town of Milo, a location of choice for artists and intellectuals. The morning will be punctuated by a number of stops along the eastern side of the volcano. We will visit old and new lava flows, black pine and birch forests, go inside a cave and eventually reach the top of a side crater at 1700 metres. Finally, we will return to Milo and visit Barbara and Amilcare who will welcome us into their house, in the full tradition of Sicilian hospitality. Here we will take a break, with a light lunch of typical local dishes expertly prepared by our hosts.
