Carrying out one of the several Mount Etna Tours from Catania represents a fundamental experience for those who come to visit the city, it is impossible not to notice its majesty that dominates Catania and all the town located around its slopes.
How to carry out Mount Etna tours from Catania?
Reaching the volcano, doesn’t require much time because 1 hour is necessary at most.
For example, many people usually rent a car and go on Mount Etna on their own. We don’t recommend this option because you will reach 2000 meters where Rifugio Sapienza Hotel is located and you can take only the cablecar or go for a walk aroung there.
We suggest, to carry out an excursion with an expert guide who will show you the most volcano’s peculiar elements such as inactive craters, lava tubes and so on. Normally, the free pick up and drop off from Catania are included in the excursion with no extra fees to pay.
In addition, during the excursion the guide will explain you Etna’s History and answer to all your questions.
If you don’t have much time, it is possible visit Mount Etna anyway. You can choose to do one of the several half-day excursions. First of all, if you can do it only at morning time we suggest you “Etna Morning Tour” because it starts at morning time and finishes for lunch time, normally the duration is about four hour or five at most.
If you are sunset lovers, you cannot give up to the most required tour “Etna Sunset“, is the same Etna morning tour’s itinerary but we do it in the afternoon, especially in summer time is spectacular.
