Great excursion with Valeria. We were 3 with a 5 year old child and we wanted to discover Etna without the crowds and for it to be accessible for a child and it's done! Valeria, who knows volcanoes very well, explains the history and functioning of Etna to both children and parents. You climb with your vehicle up to 2000 meters and then Valeria guides you for 4.5 hours. The guide speaks perfect French and gives small gifts to the children in connection with Etna. Great morning!
