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 decoration on the outside of the basilica is fantastic. Interior is relatively plain compared with the cathedral, but still worth a look

We all know what Florence Duomo looks like, St Peter's in Vatican City, St. Mark's in Venice... well... this is easily in that category. The sculptured figures in front, alone are worth a trip. The cherubs in front, the Old Testament prophets, the incredible paintings in the basilica from the 1730's by Pietra Paolo Vasta, all of it is just amazing. Yet, who has heard of it?! The current church has been standing since 1700, go enjoy this great town and this wonderful church.

One of the many churches in Acireale (about half way between Taormina and Catania) . Amazing Baroque architecture outside , less impressive inside . Main entrance on Via Vittorio Emanuele and not on the Piazza Leonardo Vigo . Only a few minutes walk from Piazza Duomo with its two churches (See separate reviews) . So if you are already in Acireale - do take the time to enjoy this church also .

Acireale apparently has 100 churches! This one is worth stepping into. You can further enjoy it it from across the square whilst having a gelato at the bar exactly across, the other side of the square.

Acireale is definitely worth a walk while you are in and around Catania. Take the costal road that goes from Catania through Aci Castello, Aci Trezza (remember to say hi to the Cyclopes) and finally park close to the duomo in Acireale. For such a small city this is definitely a church worth exploring. You can't leave Acireale without eating the granita! Enjoy (remember Sicily is all about FOOD!)
