First of all, if you take a drive up and around the volcano, it's pretty good and there's plenty to look at. The roads wind a lot and are very narrow in places, so it's not for less-confident drivers.
To get to see the uppoermost part of the volvano though, you have to use the cable car and this is where things start to get expensive.
The cost was 25 Euros for each adult and I think it was 12 for kids under 14.
However, after standing in a queue for more than 60 minutes, you notice the letter they have stuck to the windows stating that in order to get the children's discount, you need to show a passport.
We saw several people queue, only to leave after reading the notice.
We had our 12 year old son with us and we had no passport, but we weren't charged full rate and no comment was made about his age. Maybe it was a bluff, but I couldn't see the point of annoying people in this way.
The queue outside though, was only the tip of the iceberg, as we had another 40 minute wait once we got inside. I think a couple of coaches must have descened on the place when we arrived.
The cable car was rammed with people - most of whom seemed to want to take photos with extra large cameras, push our son our of their way and having no kind of respect for anyone else's space.
The trip back was better, as there were less people.
Was it worth the money? Not really, but then it's not every day that you get to go up a volcano.
