Customer Travel Tip: Etna, wandering at night with all the beautiful lights in the places and streets, food !

Liked: If you like history, and Etna, you are at the right place. If you like good food also !

Disliked: It could just be the most wonderful city I have ever seen : but for this, they should take more care of their houses. It makes me sad to see all these beautiful palaces going to wreck. I understand it would cost a lot, but it would certainly be worth it.
