Where is the best view in Sicily?

If I can tell you one tip about Sicily, which is totally worth the hustle, than it is – climb Etna, my friend! The best view ever as far as you can see! The air! the clouds! The experience! If traveling to Sicily than adding visiting Etna is a must! Even if not the fittest person or pro hiker – everyone will find something for their fitness level: starting from newbie to pro.

To be honest Etna was my main destination in Sicily and also in my Bucket list.

Usually I prefer to make my own tours: search information, make itinerary and just go by the flow if not going as planned ( taking quite easy), but this time I decided that the best way to enjoy fully this Etna experience would be by participating by some of the locally organized excursions…and I am glad I did! it was great fun together with a local guide who knew everything about the Etna, vulcanos and surroundings and where speaking 3 languages!

Our 6 hours trip was by Etna Tribe – Etna High Altitude, which included: Pick up from hotel, Arrival at Rifugio Sapienza, Ascent by cable car up to about 2500 mt, Ascent by 4×4 minibus up to Torre del Filosofo (2900 mt), Visit of a lava flow cave, Sampling of typical products and Return to hotel.

We were really lucky because the day we climbed it the smoke was coming out from all 3 of the craters. ( Usually you are lucky to see one)

And after this walking and exploring and even having a small pit-stop to have a quick bite  ( home-made sandwiches) and trust me when I say they taste exceptionally well after a hike on a volcano and with a breathtaking view under you.

Have you ever climbed volcano? What’s your story?
