We had a great day on Mt. Etna with Andrea. He is a great guide and took us ‘off the beaten tracks’. When you have time go on the mountain with him!

We took Andrea’s guided walking tour on Etna, too, and it was wonderful – spectacular views, climbing up some of the smaller craters, across lava fields and through a lava cave. Definitely recommended.
