Welcome to Sicily bobdobolina10!

Do you plan to hire a car?

Zafferana Etnea and Nicolosi are the gateway towns to Mount Etna and Rifugio Sapienza. There is a loop you can drive on the volcano from one to the other via Rifugio Sapienza where the Etna funivia is located - Rifugio Sapienza is the highest point you can drive on the mountain.

Accommodations can be found on Etna at Rifugio Sapienza, or in Nicolosi or Zafferana Etnea.

Contact the alpine guides at the Società Cooperativa Gruppo Guide Alpine Etna Sud.

http://www.etnaguide.com/

The Società Cooperativa Gruppo Guide Alpine Etna Sud’s short trek costs €60,50, and the long trek costs €65 (funivia, 4X4, trek). There’s only one long trek a day, and the long trek departs at 9.30.

You could also base in Catania or Taormina - There are many excursions that depart from Catania or Taormina, especially helpful if you don't plan to hire a car.

The only public transport to Etna is the AST bus from Catania to Etna via Nicolosi.

Hi!

We're going to Mt. Etna next week with Etna Experience. You can check out their website (there are also reviews on TripAdvisor). 68euro/person in June-Sept. Quality not sure yet - will see.

I've also looked into Legend of Sicily and SicilyLife but they were fully booked.
