Mount Etna, Catania Reviews

  • Beautiful location a must visit. Make sure you dress up very well is it will be freezing cold and take extra set of cloths with you or for the kids as if you end up playing in the snow your cloths will get wet. The view from top are amazing. Worth the visit for sure we will go again.

  • The most beautifull view and experience. I hiked to the top. It might be quite cold and challenging. The view and the fresh Mountain air and walking on an vulcano is quite the experience. Best experience for me when travelling Sicily. If you go I recommend also visiting the city Bronte. Its a pistachio oriented Village which is also great to visit.

  • Such a nice drive to the top and the view is incredible. You can plan a hiking trip to the summit, cable car rides, or just relax and have a beverage at one of the restaurants. Of course there are also places for excursions and to purchase souvenirs. A must see when visiting Catania.

  • this mountain is very beautiful and fascinating. very interesting to visit, especially the nature lovers. for those of you who want to visit this place prepare everything that is in need. for those of you who want to camp at night, prepare warm clothes, because the weather here is very cold. especially at night. also armed with candles or lighting lamps, such as cas lamps. prepare also sufficient food supplies. because here there is no food.

  • I been thear in fabuary 2018 , it was a great day , the mountain was full of ice , whan we was on up stars ,we decided to take the cabel car to go on top , it's a little bit pricey but it worth it .
