    Mount Etna is the tallest active volcano in Europe and is in a constant state of activity. It was recently added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

    "Wow! Absolutely Amazing!!!!!!! As we had young children with us we decided to use a tour company to go up Mount Etna. It was great to have a guide to explain the geologic details and history (certainly answered question from my 7 year old that my husband and I couldnt). We found it a really amazing experience and the views from the top were just breathtaking - we were lucky it wasnt cloudy. Mother Nature at her very best and was great to hear the awe in my childrens voices. I am so glad we took them there as they certainly wont forgot it and it sure beats a trip to disney land!."

    "We spent two days here - one day in the water park and one in the theme park and the kids still couldnt get enough! Paradise for them and quite enjoyable for us too :) The staff were all helpful and friendly, rides were well organised, not too bad queues and food was actually OK. Lots of different rides to try - ones that stood out for us were the wave pool, vortigo, the Storm and Etnaland Tower. Watch out for height restrictions though and for those with younger children prepare for a little disappointment." (KJ, March 2014)
