The tour started 30mins late, but once we got hiking it was great. The tour guide spoke English and Italian and was very friendly, knowledgeable and responsible. The hike was nice and the view of the volcano was of course spectacular. The hike back down in darkness was quite an experience as well. I would recommend shoes with good grip and a light jacket or sweater against the wind up there.
A short walk leads to to a viewing point where you can see regular eruptions of the vulcano at dawn or during early night. The landscape is very beautiful and if you are lucky you can combine a beautiful sunset with amazing vulcanic activity. Definitely worth the effort.
The guide walking speed was quite fast - only for advanced hikers. The last 10 min was really steep. No pee stops on the way
Giuseppe our guide, geologist, was very interesting. The rashes happen every 15-20min and it's beautiful. To do
Interesting outing. Listening guide who spoke French
