“One of the best days of my life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Really worth the climb (or drive up with jeep). The view up there is amazing! And then we found a place near Mount Etna where they rent quads ATVs and we drove around the volcano for like 5 hours. SO MUCH FUN! I had a blast. I will definitely remember this day all my life!

“Spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

A true sight, steaming away in the snow... Even if you dont get up onto the slopes just seeing it from Taormina is awe inspiring. An active volcano presiding over the land.

“Beautiful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Loved the day trip to Etna especially as it was snowing and it was my daughter's first time in the snow. Lots of lovely souvenir shops and nice coffee shops.

Went on a guided tour of Mount Etna which was very interesting. It included a stop at Refugio Sapienza and a cave.
