What type of shoes should I wear?
For the hiking tours around Mount Etna, high-top trekking boots are highly recommended.
Sporty shoes are good for all the other tours. It is advisable to wear high socks (not footies).
The sometimes sandy, sometimes rocky lava soil makes the use of mountains boots for excursions above the 2000 mt, MANDATORY.
Write in advance if you want hire trekking boots.
