Climbing Mt. Etna

Jump to last reply

I decided to start a new thread on this to keep things clear! We are heading to Sicily in early September and will spend 2 nights in Taormina or near Etna. We are interested in climbing Mt. Etna on our full day there. We are in our early 30s and love to hike. But, I am seeing some posts that Etna is not worth hiking--the views are not that great, it is crowded, etc. Does anyone have experience with this? What is it like to climb it? Also, do we need to do a tour or can we just drive there and hike it ourselves? I saw something bout 4x4 tours, but we'd really like to hike it, if that's possible in one day. Any insights are much appreciated. Thank you!
