What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Sunset on Stromboli and watching the explosions after dark has to be the highlight. But the sheer scale of the craters on Etna and the opportunity to run down the volcanic slopes was a real adrenalin rush (though not compulsory!)

What did you think of your group leader?

Turri was brilliant, he was knowledgeable of the geology and of all the places visited. His knowledge of Catania was certainly way ahead of my guide book! He was an excellent walk leader, he always got the pace just right for the group.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

You need time to come back down to earth afterwards!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Just do it!!
