Summit Craters 3300mt:Guide Service+Cable car+jeep(one way)from Rifugio Sapienza

109 reviews
Most Mt. Etna excursions stop at the Silvestri Craters on the lava-covered slopes, but with this exclusive tour you can reach the top of Europe’s highest active volcano with a volcanologist guide. Take a cable car and off-road vehicle to Torre del Filosofo and then continue on foot about a mile (2 kilometers) to the summit craters. Learn about the volcano’s history from your guide and enjoy sweeping views over the coastline.

Not exactly an easy place to get to but you should absolutely plan for a trip here as part of your Sicilian adventure. We started off at Ragusa in the morning, made a brief stop at Caltagirone (which is amazing), then onward to Piazza Amerina and finally arriving at Palermo in the evening. It was a pretty long drive and as you can imagine, we were pretty dead beat by the time we reached Palermo. I find the road signs a bit misleading from Piazza Amerina. We drove through the town of Piazza Amerina twice and got lost a bit. Anyway once we got back on track, it was an easy 5km drive to the villa. The mosaics are as the stories behind them and we were totally blown away. Do not miss this.

No tour of Sicily would be complete without visiting this Roman Villa. An absolute delight. In comparison, a tour of Mount Etna and it's smouldering five shades of grey is just a tick in the box. A general tip - before going to Sicily, do your research, pick your highlights and limit the hard miles you have to cover between them. You are then sure to enjoy it.

This is the beautiful city of Piazza Armerina, nearest Enna and Caltagirone, in the middle of Sicily Island. A lot of attractions.

This is the sort of town I love, it has a modern part and a higgledy piggledy "centro storico" where you can wander about and get lost and pass by the people who live and work there. Piazza Armerina is a bit worn down in places but you know I prefer it to Ortigia in Syracuse, where we went before coming here, even if it's not so "presentable" as it isn't so touristy. I think most people just come here to visit the Roman Villa which is a few kilometres away but it was nice to spend a day in the town too. The Duomo was beautiful outside and in. Maybe I shouldn't give Piazza Armerina a good review, so lots of people don't come and spoil it, but it would probably not appeal to some, as it isn't full of souvenir shops and finding your way around the little maze of up and down narrow streets leaves you a bit dizzy. So please don't come unless you can appreciate it as it is and let's not ruin it!!
