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.

Not sure about its tourist value but it was fabulous as a setting for the family wedding we recently attended.

it is free to enter and walk around - which takes about ten minutes. So do it, and then get in your car and head over to another town......

One of the most beautiful Castles in the World. However, it is not open to the public everyday. You can see it from the outside.... it is gorgeous. The castle has a rhomboidal shape, with a nearly rectangular courtyard. At the corners there are four battlemented towers (two square and two circular shaped, each of them with a particular function. In the past the castle was bounded by walls which served to hinder the castle's siege by war machines. According to a hypothesis, which is still to be confirmed, under the castle maybe there are also some prison ditches which were used between the end of the 14th and the 18th century for the kings' imprisonment.

We came here on excursion and it is indeed a beautifully restored 14th century castle, we were greeted by a couple of young ladies who worked there and asked us if we would be wanting to go inside for a tour, on a spur of the moment decision, however, our stomachs overruled our curiosity, and we declined, which I regret just a little bit. We had arrived just about the time when they were closing inside tours for their lunch. But the inside courtyard was beautiful and it was a great place to just stand and wonder for a bit. Castle is open Tuesday through Sunday, 9-1 and 3:30-9, free. There are several churches nearby that may or may not be open and plenty of places to eat nearby and in the square. Alcamo was nice to walk around, parking was the real challenge, but I have to say, we only saw two other non-Italians the day we spent there, it was nice to not be in a flood of tourists, but still have plenty to do and see-a worthwhile trip.
