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.

I enjoyed strolling along the Via dei Crociferi much better than it's larger more famous parallel sister, Via Etnea. It is much quieter yet lined with old but beautiful Baroque buildings. Highly recommend taking this detour.

The street is with nice buildings and churches, it is near Piazza Duomo, deserves to be seen. We had a good walk of 20000 steps every day

The Via dei Crociferi is generally considered as one of the best places to study Catania's baroque architecture. It runs almost parallel to the city's main throughfare, the Via Etnea, but is much more quiet. At its southern end is Piazza San Francesco d'Assisi, from where it is accessed through the arch of San Benedetto. In the street can be found several churches and palazzi. At its northern end is the Villa Cerami, now belonging to the faculty of jurisprudence of Catania's university. Unfortunately many buildings of this street are in a sad state of neglect, some sprayed over like the now unreadable information boards.
