Nice climb on the southwest driveway. Great view into the lava fields. The asphalt is also new and good. Quite different on the east ascent. This is not recommended, especially downhill. Also the weather should be well observed at Etna.... read more

Schöner Anstieg auf der Südwestauffahrt. Klasse Ausblick in die Lavafelder. Der Asphalt ist ebenfalls neu und gut. Ganz anders auf der Ostauffahrt. Diese ist vor allem bergab nicht zu empfehlen. Auch das Wetter sollte man am Ätna gut beobachten.
