Getting to Mt Etna from the centre of Catania?

I want to go up Mt Etna on 25 April. That day is a weekend & public holiday. What is the best way to get to Zafferana base camp by public transport? I have looked at on-line AST timetable but its telling me there is nor available route on that day. Helps!

Welcome to Sicily rubygooner!

Why would you go to Zafferana Etnea via public transport if you want to visit Mount Etna?

Take the AST bus from Catania to Etna. This AST bus is the only public transport to Etna, and it would arrive at Rifugio Sapienza on the mountain.
