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.

Difficult to rate a visit to a crypt containing the mummified bodies of wealthy former residents of the little town of Savoca but I will award 4 stars! What can you say? The crypt is not as big as some, so for those wanting a high body count, potentially disappointing. Also the state of preservation was not quite as perfect as one might hope for. However, it is churlish to complain about such matters. Whether the crypt was fully open was difficult to tell since we were greeted with a sign inviting us to summon someone to open the gate. This all happened quite quickly so whether this was the standard routine or not, I cannot tell. We also visited the (rather unspectacular) church above the crypt. No admission charge but a request for a donation.

This is a most interesting stop. It doesn't take very long to walk around the room and I know it sounds rather macabre. But, just noting the period dress and paying simple homage to those who chose this path is not at all unsettling. The room is well lit, but no photos are allowed. It may take just a few minutes but, if you have a few Euros to donate for the upkeep of this resting place, the church would be very grateful. It's amazing how many folks tromped through in the few minutes our group was there. Don't forget to also stop and look inside the church itself and enjoy the views from the open patio.

I have never seen real mummies so this was something pretty awesome. No photos allowed but you can find them on line so you’ll know what you are walking in to. They are monks and wealthy people dressed in period clothing. They were so tiny! I thoroughly enjoyed seeing them even though it was a short view- walk up one aisle and down another. They are well preserved and something to behold.

Went to see the Mummies as part of the Godfather Tour run by Tui.Other tour operators may offer this as part of their excursion, but I am not sure.It was a small crypt with about 15 mummies in total.Some have been vandalized but this was years ago, but it is still an interesting visit.It is free of charge to view the mummies but donations are appreciated to help with the upkeep of the Mummies and crypt.

A lovely little church with great views of the beautiful countryside. The crypt is fascinating and recommend you visit it – obviously there is no photography. They are free to go in, although there was a man taking “voluntary” contributions at the entrance to the crypt! Definitely worth a visit.
