If you only do the one trip whilst in Taormina, then do this one! It was truly an amazing experience. To fly so close to the crater was an experience we'll never forget. It was easy to book, pick up and return to the hotel and an informative guide by the pilot whilst making the flight up and over Etna. Seriously, walking up Etna is one thing but to fly over her is even more amazing. Worth every penny of the cost.
