Summit Craters 3300mt:Guide Service+Cable car+jeep(one way)from Rifugio Sapienza

Most Mt. Etna excursions stop at the Silvestri Craters on the lava-covered slopes, but with this exclusive tour you can reach the top of Europe’s highest active volcano with a volcanologist guide. Take a cable car and off-road vehicle to Torre del Filosofo and then continue on foot about a mile (2 kilometers) to the summit craters. Learn about the volcano’s history from your guide and enjoy sweeping views over the coastline.

We have been going to festival since 2013, we havent been every single year but love to plan for every few years. We have also been outside of the festival and loved that too. Took friends one year and that was so fab. I loved sharing my excitement with them. The first year was crazy, we couldnt get a seat in any bar, but met some awesome people and still had fun. The following festival we went to we literally had a back stage seat in a bar and mingled with famous celebrities until the wee small hours. The last time we went it was held on the beach and not so inclusive, but still brilliant. Yeah its expensive, but festivals are, if you dont want that dont go at that time. It’s part of our life now

Wandered through the festival for 3 days. Staying in San Vito for a week and caught the tail end of the festivities. This total transforms this quiet town into a cosmopolitan whirl wind. We enjoyed all the happenings but as my Italian is very weak we didn't understand much of what was happening. Ate great food, shopped unique shops and wouldn't have passed it up for anything!

We planned our Sicily trip around this festival, Disappointed in the quality of food and it was pricey, still had the beach at San Vito Lo Capo, the best in Europe.

Without this festival it would be more boring. Fun, tasty, interesting, beautiful. The tasting is accompanied by evening concerts of Italian musicians. Gathers a lot of tourists and local residents. For a small town this is a great event. And for the tourist a pleasant surprise. We learned a lot of interesting things about couscous.

We have heard so much about this advertised Festival . What a disappointment . Went on Monday 18/9/17 . The price is Euro10.00 which includes a plate of your chosen cous cous,a bottle of water(150mls) and a ever so so miniature Sicilian cassata. The portion of cous cous we were given was so small and it was so so dry. My husband and I both had from the stand as per photograph so did our guests. It was dry, sauce less and tasteless . We had it with meat and chickpeas and our guests chicken and vegetable . I definitely will not return to this Festival . Not worth the money . We would of got a better tasting cous cous in a small restaurant .
