Mount Etna is only the highest volcano in Europe, looming over the Italian island of Sicily. Here are some other things you can do while you're in the region to boost your visit!
More advanced hikers can get to the top in about about five hours. From there you'll be able to see Sicily's beautiful geographical formations, such as the Alcantara Gorges.
A long way down from Etna's summit, this is an easy visit for those who may feel they're not up to the task of going right up to the top. There are tours going by bus.
Sicily is renowned for its wonderful vineyards and wine production - so what could be better than sampling some local libations as you wind down after your trip up Mount Etna?
Get a hop-on, hop-off bus tour of Palermo and explore the biggest city in Sicily. Admire villas and gardens, Zisa Castle and the cathedral.
Decent hiking boots are a requirement, as well as comfortable clothes that won't get too stuffy in warm weather. You may also want to bring a scarf or similar to breathe through, as sulfuric fumes intensify as you reach the top. Sunscreen is a must, too.
For the hike, definitely March to September - in the winter there's sometimes snow, and it turns into a ski paradise! Get there in the morning so that you reach the top at midday for the sunniest view - it's worth the early start.
- When should I visit?10:00 - 23:00. Closed on Sundays.
- Is it expensive?Free to look at from the outside. Prices vary based on what you'd like to do.
- Will I need a guide?It will definitely help. Might be worth it to check out our best-selling tours.
- How to get thereFrom Catania, take the AST bus. From the A18, go to Rifugio Sapienza. From Taormina, take the SAT shuttle.
- Additional information** Check weather conditions in advance. Webcams to the summit, available at some locations, can rule out a trip. | Dress appropriately for the weather and make sure you have comfortable shoes!*
What people are saying about Mount Etna
A really well organised tour with plenty of off road driving especially in the quarry would recommend any body try it a really good afternoon
Nice trip, well-organized program, well informed and experienced tour guide. We got lots of interesting information during the trip, everything was fine. I enjoyed a lot.
On the first day the tour was cancelled due to bad weather conditions. But we tried it the day after and the weather conditions were not perfect to go to the top of Ethna, but our guide made a good alternative tour! thanks to maximo
Etna itself is an amazing site to visit but then the company, the guide and the day can always change your experience. We were lucky enough to go there on a sunny day, with the Etna in eruption. The entire team was very friendly and helpful, when we called for additional info already we had everything we needed, our guide was the best (Grazie Edi), he answered all our questions and even more, did teach us a lot, and even if we were stressed at the end because we had a flight after, he organised everything friendly.
We were very lucky to choose him and his services, as finally it was a value for money choice! He was lovely- passionated- well informed and specialized- friendly- on time- ready for any circumstances- well organised- very polite in contrast to other facilities in Sicily - clean and adequate car -good driving skills- he loves to surprise positively the others and explore with love and passion the surroundings- sensitive with narure- he gave as and a tiny tiny taste of nature grapping some tasty fruits for us- thank u
