Fiumefreddo di Sicilia. We leave the coast towards Piedimont Etneo and Linguaglossa, enjoying the typical
landscape of Etna, different in every season, and reaching a height of 800 meters above sea level. The view
of the volcano, among hazelnut and pistachio orchards and the rich wine yards is simply breathtaking. We
will pass over ancient and more recent lava flows until reaching a renowned winery, where the professional
explanations of wine experts will lead us towards an amazing tasting of different wines. Once left the wine
cellar, we'll reach Randazzo, a glorious medieval town on the slopes of Etna.Walking through the picturesque
streets of the town, we'll see the ancient Lanza Palace a convent in the past, the 15th century monastery that
