Our guide Maurizio was very knowledgeable and helpful. The tour was good value, we were picked up in a mini bus and driven up to mount Etna. We saw a grotto and then hiked up Etna and saw craters. We are not big hikers and it was all within our comfort zone.

The wonderful city of Catania, in the east side of Sicily Island, offers a lot of opportunities in terms of attractions and monuments. For me, the TOP, is always the spectacular mount ETNA. In this picture you colid appreciate from Nicosia (Enna).
