Spent the better part of a day climbing Mount Etna in an SUV Jeep. Who knew how big the mountain was? The driver, Fabio picked us up right from our hotel in Catania and took us thru a number of scenic towns on the way up. Our group was 6 people + driver and stops were frequent to take Vista photos. Fabio was very knowledgable and as it turns out, has a degree in Geology/Vulcanology. Beyond the first hour, we were taking in not just the science of Mount Etna, but the social climate in Sicily. Useful info like: "everytime there's a lava flow, the young engineer's girl friend gets a new Vespa - eruptions are good for the Sicilian economy" kept us rolling with laughter. Well worth it!
