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.

Situated in Piazza della Repubblica, we found this church on our walk from Ragusa Ibla to Ragusa Superiore. Built in C17th, it's situated at the top of a flight of stairs. Well worth a look around.

We arrived in Ragusa on Saturday night so went to this church which was a few steps from our hotel. Typical Italian church mass was obviously in Italian so I had marginal understanding of the service. Unless we needed to go to mass would not have visited this church.

Upon entering this church, I spotted placards- one in Italian, the other in English which describe all the statues and paintings. The most interesting thing about this church was reading that it was built by a family who has the same surname as my maiden name. And while I was reading it, I was approached by an English-speaking Italian couple and learned the wife had stayed with friends in the town where I grew up in NY. Of course, this doesn't describe the church, but it's one of those travel memories that stays with you. Most memorable to me were the brightly colored statues of the Virgin Mary, and other figures. One alterpiece had brightly painted female figures on each side, and a male figure dressed in traveling gear with a small dog - very unusual.

Passing through Piazza della Repubblica on the way back from Ragusa Ibla to Ragusa Superiore we saw that the doors to the church which had previously been close were now open. Climbing the steep steps we entered a lovely church with some really ancient and beautiful parts, especially what seemed to be the original altar. There were few visitors, but all those there seemed to be impressed with what they saw. Worth a visit if you can catch it when the doors are open.

Although our visit to this church was quite short (probably less than 30mins) we still found it quite interesting. The access from the street is up a very steep flight of steps so may be difficult for the elderly or disabled. There were two interesting statues in the church. One wasof a male saint accompanied by a dog who appeared to be carrying a begging bowl. If we understood the priest correctly this was Saint Siroco but we were unsure on this. The other statue was of a lady standing on a snake. The church, in common with a lot of churches in Italy, was very richly decorated. We were a bit rushed in here as we got the feeling that the priest, although helping us with a few questions, probably wanted out as it was close to noon when we were in here. Sure enough, when we left the door of the church banged shut behind us.
