A must see tour of Mt Etna. Fabrizio Perez from Enjoy Sicily is excellent. You will not only see My Etna but also lava tubes, have a great lunch and do some tastings of the famous local products.

We had this trip as part of a three week tour and it was a real highlight. The drive up through the 1980s lava flow is engaging as abandoned buildings peek out from their fiery graves. The cable car and 4WD bus to the highest...More
