To do !

In the top ! Our perfect French guide! But be careful to choose the excursion, because 6h excursion around the Etna! We see a single crater, a cave and tastings. We wanted to go up to the volcano so we had to pay 65 € more per person! The price includes the funicular + the bus! However, the guide accompanied us to the volcano! Dress warmly if you want to climb high.

An unforgettable experience in Etna with Giulia, our guide. We couldn't be happier, he made us enjoy Etna, live Etna. I recommend this experience without hesitation and hopefully I will touch you with Giulia, because he really loves what he does.

Guiseppe kon blijven vertellen over de Etna. We hebben veel gezien en enorm veel bijgeleerd! De enige tip dat ik kan geven: neem een reispilletje in voordat je aan de tocht naar boven begint. :)
