This was our best adventure in Sicily. We opted to go all the way to the top. Bring layers of clothes because it is cold and windy. If you don’t have hiking boots a good pair of sneakers worked well for me. Cable car ride...More
A must see other-worldly experience. Walk to all the cinder cones in less than 2 hours, we went one day after a rainstorm. Windy but not dusty. Drive through scrub to visitor area. Climb black vermillion and red cinder paths to see dried lava shapes...More
We really enjoyed this trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we got to see a lot. The eruptions were great to see and the Ash cloud amazing... Was actually hoping the airport would stay closed so we didn't have to leave. I think another...More
What a fascinating day. Hardly any climbing, with bus, cable car and jeep . The guides are knowledgeable and talk good English. Learned so much, even how to predict the day's weather, about the mountain. Well worth visiting.
We booked an excellent half-day tour with EtnaPeople.com and were lucky enough to get Giulia on the phone to book our reservation and Roberto as our guide. Both were a pleasure to deal with. Giulia patiently answered our many questions about difficulty levels and equipment,...More
Mother Etna erupted on 24th of December 2018 and I arrived ther on 6th of January. It is breathtaking and one of the most surprising places that I have seen! The vulcano is alive, I could even see the ash in the sky! Don’t miss...More
Used the bus tour from the central square. Interesting journey once you get beyond the outskirts of Catania. Great going out of season - take/wear warm clothing! But it meant that the place was virtually empty and we could enjoy the natural beauty of the...More

Hello I booked the most fantastic guy through Francesco Maravigna who is the Head Desk Clerk at the Hotel Villa Romeo When I arrived all of the tours were booked out and I spoke with Francesco and he worked his magic - sorry can not remember the guides name was in his early 20's and had the Helmets/lights etc and he took me right into a lava cave - fantastic - I tried to send you Francesco's email address but the site will not permit therefore send an email to him at the Hotel Romeo and mention my name - now the mountain - the guide will take you via his bus to Rifugio halfway then you can have him take you all around that area or you can do what I did is to go via the cablecar to 3,000 meters then on a truck or a tractor up to the next level then you have to walk - I did it so pleased with myself - it was freezing in November !!! still a little ice around so rug up with layers warm pants and very warm jacket - when I came down the guide was waiting and then he took me all around the area showing me the lava paths of the past - never seen anything like it in the world - you will be fascinated you will feel that you are on another planet - hope this will assist you regards Judy

I personally would not be taking a 1 yr old up Mnt Etna. It is a bumpy ride with not so much room for a pushchair or baby carrier etc. The air at the top is a bit thin and can be v cold for a youngster to cope with. Sicily... More
I personally would not be taking a 1 yr old up Mnt Etna. It is a bumpy ride with not so much room for a pushchair or baby carrier etc. The air at the top is a bit thin and can be v cold for a youngster to cope with. Sicily is beautiful anyway and its up to you where to visit. I stayed in Taormina and it is a lovely little town. Best of luck.
