Etna Excursions from Catania

192 reviews
Large bus tours usually take visitors to the Etna visitor center and easily accessible craters, but this tour offers a small, personalized exploration of other parts of the mountain. Travel in a 4WD vehicle or minivan to areas inaccessible by larger transport, and visit the Valle del Bove, a canyon-like depression with an interesting landscape, and the Silvestri Craters. The tour also includes exploration of a lava cave.

The area around the harbour basin is somewhat run down - okay for a walk if you are in the area but don't make a special effort to visit. Some restaurants but nothing special and you'll just be breathing in fumes from the heavy traffic queues - better to go a street or two further back. We did find a nice raised walk though that runs from Via Vittorio Emanuele to Via Alloro behind Via Buttera - climb some steps and you get a lovely view of old palazzos on one side and the harbour on the other - very quiet and pleasant.

The main basin of the port, with many nice restaurants around, is full of yachts etc. However, they really have let the surrounding parts of the port go to seed. There's an opportunity here to make this a really nice area.

This area is near a lot of great "street" food restaurants and Palazzo Chiaramonte and Piazza Spirito Sancto. It is lovely to walk around and feels miles from Palermo center although being literally only a few steps.

Good Morning 😄😄😄 The secret is to wake up in the morning, decide that the day will be happy and fight to make it happen and enjoy the mature gives us. Good morning! 😜 The Cove is what remains of the old port, Arabs and Normans; Is one of the world's oldest, dating back to the 8th century b.c. The Cove is a sheltered Cove in U-shape in the center of the city, between the Foro Italico and Via Crispi. Is used today as a Marina for small pleasure craft of Palermo
