Perfect day ať all. We have been picked up with Pepe and drive one hour to reach cable station bellow Etna first peak, where we deciced to pay extra 68€/person to use cable car and 4x4 bus to reach 2750 m (guided tour as well) and see one small Etna crater. This is to be sad that no permission to go upper is prohibited due to safety reason. Also do not underestimated temperature and take some wind jacket and outdoor shoes . After that we enjoy nice and tasty degustation at Palmento Arena. Very recommended. And Pepe was a really nice and friendly Guide.

We were a group of three adults that had an amazing day with Salvo! He was so informative, friendly and helpful, he really made our day special! Etna is absolutely stunning- a must see if you are in Catania- and the wine tasting exceeded all expectations! The food and wine were delicious and portions were generous. I would highly recommend! From the Canadians!
