Somebody who did this Tour!
We took Andrea’s guided walking tour on Etna, too, and it was wonderful – spectacular views, climbing up some of the smaller craters, across lava fields and through a lava cave. Definitely recommended.

We had a great day on Mt. Etna with Andrea. He is a great guide and took us ‘off the beaten tracks’. When you have time go on the mountain with him!
