I will be in Giardini Naxos in late July.
Our party is two adults and three small children - ages 1, 3 and 5.
I am keen to visit Mount Etna. It is probably a daft question, but is it accessible by pushchair? The older two will walk short distances and we could bring a back pack to carry the baby in.
The baby carrier is pretty bulky, so if we can see as much with a pushchair, I probably won't bother packing it.
How serious is the walking involved in reaching the summit?
And do you think it's a trip that would be worthwhile with small children? They are fascinated by volcanos,, but less keen on long walks and high temperatures!
When is the best time of day time to go - and how long do you need? I imagine it's terribly crowded in peak season.
Any thoughts greatly appreciated.
