Weekend in Etna region.

Hello, we will be in Zafferana for the Carnival weekend. Originally it was meant to be an occasion to put on skis at Piano Provenzana, but unfortunately there is no snow... Instead I plan to spend a few hours in one of the Adventure Parks, visit the Carnival one evening, do some shopping and ... ??? Please do you have any more suggestions? We have been for short stays on a few occasions, so not really interested in Taormina/ Castelmola/ Catania. By the way, will have a car and are ready to do a 2 hr drive from Zafferana to visit any interesting places suggested. Thanks

The adventure park at Milo has some great zipline runs for adults, apart from catering for children, obviously. Last year we also visited the Monti Rossi adventure park on the Nicolosi side; it was good fun for our daughter, too. You would need to check about its opening dates etc. Enjoy!
