Is a unique experience that everyone has to do it. The view is breathtaking from the top and all the route if you walk is a unique experience. Must do it if you go to Sicily.

We took the cable car and jeep and it was great as we had limited time. There didn't seem to be much extra to see for walkers and it was very dusty.
