We booked an excellent half-day tour with EtnaPeople.com and were lucky enough to get Giulia on the phone to book our reservation and Roberto as our guide. Both were a pleasure to deal with. Giulia patiently answered our many questions about difficulty levels and equipment,...More
Mother Etna erupted on 24th of December 2018 and I arrived ther on 6th of January. It is breathtaking and one of the most surprising places that I have seen! The vulcano is alive, I could even see the ash in the sky! Don’t miss...More
Used the bus tour from the central square. Interesting journey once you get beyond the outskirts of Catania. Great going out of season - take/wear warm clothing! But it meant that the place was virtually empty and we could enjoy the natural beauty of the...More

I personally would not be taking a 1 yr old up Mnt Etna. It is a bumpy ride with not so much room for a pushchair or baby carrier etc. The air at the top is a bit thin and can be v cold for a youngster to cope with.
