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.

Although they are listed by Trip Advisor as two different attractions, Museo Guttuso and Villa Cattolica are actually the same thing. Renato Guttuso is the most important Sicilian painter and one of the most important Italian artists of XX century. As he was born in Bagheria, he donated to his hometown many of his works. At Villa Cattolica are exhibited some of his early paintings, the portrait of his father and some of his friends, the portrait of Graziella, next to a cactus and the famous self-portrait with his wife, Mimise, near a still life with oranges. The last masterpiece of Guttuso (Nella stanza le donne vanno e vengano), which is unfinished, is also exposed here. In addition to Guttuso's canvas, some works of other famous Italian painters of ”Novecento” are on display as well. Guttuso is one of my favorite painters, so I rate 5 out of 5 any museum that display some of his paintings. However, this museum still needs some improvements. The toilet is located outside the building, so if you need to go to the toilet, you need to interrupt your visit and exit the villa, informing the museum attendants that you need to go to the ”bagno” and come back to continue the tour. That's quite unpleasant. The bookshop is very poor and they accept cash only (in 2020!). The English skills of the museum attendants seem to be quite limited, therefore speaking Italian is a great advantage. Anyway, if you like Guttuso, this museum is not to be missed.

Great villa with interesting exhibits. Unfortunately in a state of decay. Makes you wonder where all the money from the entrance fees goes ...
