It was terribly hot the day we went there, so we didn’t see all there is to see - but we were pretty amazed by the view in all directions. A beautiful spot to see Etna from.

We did other things until 5:30pm, when we entered. It closes at 7. We had it nearly to ourselves at the end. Were the last ones out. It’s cooler and the light is superb.
