Mount Etna

An excursion to Italy’s beloved Mount Etna was definitely a highlight of our trio to Southern Sicily.

There are many guided tour groups with prearranged activities that will pick you up and drop off at your hotel in Catania.

Here were the highlights of our trek.

Otherworldly rock face formations with the clearest coldest water I have ever been in.

p.s. Catania is a great starting point for being picked up and dropped off for your excursion. See the Catania Travel Guide here.

      That reminds me of my ecrepienxe in Rome. Roads are rather narrow there, and parking is simply haphazard. Luckily I was traveling in a group of Americans, so we had no difficulty storming crosswalks. We saw a lot of Smart cars there, incidentally.Yes! Italian food is the best in the world. I absolutely adore their gelato and pesto.Sigh. You Europeans get all the perks. Practically uninhibited travel throughout the European Union, yes?Beautiful photos, by the way.
