    If you're in Catania, book a tour of Mt. Etna. It is unforgettable if you're an "outdoors person." I've been up twice, in 2016 and 2019, to different sides of the mountain. I recommend doing the mountain only, not a combo of the mountain and Taormina (Greek Theater).

    Hi Jeff, thank you for the long and full of tips review. Yes, temperatures on Mount Etna can be really low especially when it is windy, so we always strongly recommend warm clothes, wind jackets and mountain shoes. Thanks for sharing your experience on the highest volcano in Europe. Warm greetings, Guest Relation Manager SAT Group

    Well organised full day tour from Taormina. 2 different buses for various languages! Elisabet and driver were great. Do include the cable car, where you will be met by incredibly hard working Etna Guides. Fantastic landscape - like the moon ... Etna gave us smoke plumes too!

    The guide on the coach from Taomina was fantastic and very informative. The whole trip was well organised and ran well. However it was a blizzard when we got to the top so the guide at the top didn't tell us very much as it was freezing. Well worth doing though. A great

    Hi Ginette W, what a pity, we are missing one point because it was freezing on the top of Etna! By the way, it is necessary to bring warm clothes as it can be really cold and windy at 3000 meters. Thanks for sharing the tip. Warm regards, Guest Relations Manager SAT Group
