We booked the Etna half day trip with MSC excursions. Mr. Aldo enchanted us all the way to Etna with his encyclopedic knowledge and his sense of humor. The road to Etna is awesome with 22 tunnels and bridges which took 8 years to build. We stopped at Zafferana Etnea to admire

We took a morning Etna tour and were picked up righ from our B&B after receiving confirmation via e-mail. The group wasn't too big and the tour was just right in terms of sights and knowledge. We were even offered some free trekking shoes. Totally recommended!
