Hello, we would like to do a number of excursions when we are there, can tickets for local attractions be purchased at the hotel? Or is there a tourist information shop close by. We would really like to visit Etna on our trip.
We hired a private driver and they took care of the entrance fees (if there were any) for Mt. Etna. I would think the hotel could set you up with a car and driver. You also can probably find one right across the street on the lovely square outside the hotel. Everyone's very friendly and casual, there are many possible places to get recommendations.
Sorry for late reply. We did not ask from the hotel receptionist but we just did our research in the internet. While in Siracusa, we went to their sights. We were not interested to go up to Etna since we were there in July and we find it very hot to go up there.
