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.

What a pleasant surprise! Small museum, but it tells quite a story. We were fortunate to have Irene Culcasi, a member of the family that has owned the museum for generations, give us a tour. Wonderful exhibits that spoon feed the salt process to lay people. Then we walked the exterior salt basins and reviewed what we'd learned from Irene about old-school salt harvesting. Well worth the stop!

Nice and quick trip while going South to Marsala. Tour guide speaks English, so there shouldn't be any problems if one doesn't speak Italian. Unfortunately, they don't let you get inside the mill itself :(

We didn't actually go in to the museum building as the exterior, the windmills and the salt pans were so interesting. A bit of a trek to find the place but so pleased that we did. Faces west so a good spot for photos at sunset
