Summit Craters 3300mt:Guide Service+Cable car+jeep(one way)from Rifugio Sapienza

Most Mt. Etna excursions stop at the Silvestri Craters on the lava-covered slopes, but with this exclusive tour you can reach the top of Europe’s highest active volcano with a volcanologist guide. Take a cable car and off-road vehicle to Torre del Filosofo and then continue on foot about a mile (2 kilometers) to the summit craters. Learn about the volcano’s history from your guide and enjoy sweeping views over the coastline.

The scientists at the Osservatorio were professional and competent. At the same time, they explained things to us in such a manner as to make the night sky easy to understand. The tour was interesting and worthwhile. Jupiter, Venus, Saturn and the Moon did their job perfectly! Thanks to the researchers Enza, Giovanni and Giuseppe!
