Giuseppe was our tour guide. We flew in from Malta, where we are spending our vacation and hopped a plane to Catania, Sicily with hopes to see the summit of Mount Etna. We booked our tour easily from the U.S. and they picked us up at the designated spot at exactly the correct time. The forecast called for clouds all day with a half inch of rain at the summit, but we decided to take a chance and go anyway. As you can see from the photos, we were not disappointed. Giuseppe was an excellent guide and made our day something special that we will remember forever. He was friendly and accommodating and I swear he was just as excited at the top as we were. I was completely prepared for rain and wind and I would’ve had a good time no matter what, but I am grateful for the break in the weather while we learned about the volcano. I felt completely safe and learned so much. The views were breathtaking and the drives through the villages were amazing. I recommend spending the extra money to take the lift and jeep ride to the top. I love to hike, but the hike did not look like it would be worth the effort. And I think the shorter trip would not get you as high as one would hope. Go for the Top Easy. Best decision I made this trip.
