we arrived at 11am and were back before 1pm, we took the FUNICULAR+Jeep + guide combo. I know a lot of people complain it is expensive but unless you want to walk up, I would advise to do it. Worth the money.

if you are visiting Sicily, you definitely need to go to Etna. Use cable car and then white bus to reach 2900 m

Visiting Mount Etna is a must if you are visiting Sicily. It is not cheap if you use all the transport options (64 euros each) However, you can walk quite a long way from the top of the chair lift which is 30 euros each.

Paid €75 for the Mt Etna trek up to 2100m. At booking in centre you are able to hire warm coats and walking shoes for free but everyone quite rightly makes a charitable donation. We were taken in a 4x4 up to 1700m and were...More

The etna is definitely worth a visit but it’s quite expensive if you do a guides tour (85€). You can walk yourself freely until 2900 meters and see craters without going to the top which is most days clouded and you wont see a lot.

Drove up from Catania to where the cable car starts. It is a nice drive up but there is a lot of traffic, especially tour buses. Even for September the parking lot was fairly full and there were a lot of people overall. Was a...More

You can still see the old lava flows coming down Etna. You can also see the large crater and walk up on top. Very cool!!
