After our visit on Mt. Etna, we stopped into this Bar/Restaurant to purchase some souvenirs and have a bite to eat with coffee. It was a lovely place in a great location. They also had many bathroom stalls. (Which is a blessing.) They made some...More

We were fortunate to have a clear and gorgeous October day. This was an option on our tour, and most of my fellow travelers opted in. Some had been to Mt. Etna in the past and said this day was so much better. We couldn't...More

This is the most visited place on the Mount Etna volcano. It is at the top of rather road. There is a restaurant, bar, souvenir shop and restrooms. Parking can be a problem when it is crowded. You are very close to some smaller craters...More

This is the easiest crater to get around. Quite approachable, with no steep paths, near the parking. Views from the top of it are great, and on a clear day you can easily see the sea. Great place to start exploring Etna craters and enjoying...More

Having taken a coach up the winding roads of Etna and left the wife in the café, I made my way up to the crater. The ash and pumice made it hard going but then the wind started gusting so much, people were falling over....More
