Escursione piacevole e suggestiva da fare assolutamente. La nostra guida, Ernesto ha contribuito al 100% nella riuscita di quest'avventura. Dall'ospitalità nel paesino Tre Castagni dove ci ha portato per fare colazione e prendere un panino per il pranzo, all'arrivo sulla cima dell'Etna. Assistenza da parte di Ernesto ottima. Non potevamo trovare guida migliore.
