Our trip in Sicily left many wonderful memories, like historical monuments and beaches, but Etna's sunset trip was certainly the most exciting and memorable one. We prefer the unique landscape trip, not only because of the striking scenery of the volcano, but also because we are amazed at the natural wonder of the rebirth of local flora and fauna after constant destruction and the story how the locals and the volcano are getting along. All of these details came from our guide, the animal and plant expert, Andrea.
We were really lucky! He planned for us a sunset trip. The whole journey is dreamlike: we saw the magnificent lava flow, unique Etna yellow flowers and we explored a cave, climbed craters, and finally enjoyed a stunning sunset view at the perfect timing. Andrea is very kind, knowledgeable, and passionate about what he is doing. He can explain a lot of things that we think are normal and let us have a deep understanding of the entire volcanic ecosystem. Without him, the trip to the volcano would become mediocre. In addition, Andrea is doing his best to tell us everything about Catania and Sicily. Now, we love Catania just like him!
If you want to better understand Etna, we must recommend the trip with Andrea. This is not only a visual enjoyment but also a feast of knowledge!
