ETNA Sicily’s greatest natural attraction is also its highest mountain. To the ancient Greeks, Mount Etna was the realm of Vulcan, god of fire, and the home of the one-eyed monster known as the Cyclops. At approximately 3350 meters, it is €pe’s highest active volcano. The height of its summit changes with each eruption, and over the centuries a few lava flows have reached the coast. Over 1200 square meters of Etna’s surface is covered with solidified lava. Etna offers skiing in the Winter months and breathtaking hikes in the woods during the Summer. There are also a number of smaller peaks on the slopes of Etna, and some interesting caverns.

Sicily events: Stromboli’s eruptive explosions

The fascinating sensation of standing on an active volcano is redoubled in this extraordinary place by the occurrence of the scatti (literally, outbursts), the word used in the local language to indicate the most violent explosions inside the crater. The vents are located on the Sciara del Fuoco, a massive wall of volcanic débris which descends very steeply to the sea and has a rocky ridge on either side. On the slopes of the volcano (924 m; 3,031 ft), which end in high cliffs alternating here and there with small beaches, grow date-palms, vines, and prickly pears; on the volcano’s upper slopes, from about halfway up, the Mediterranean maquis begins to thin out and eventually disappears. The towns of Stromboli and Ginostra have been inhabited since the remote past, and the remains of a Greek necropolis (4th and 3rd c. bc) have been discovered, the graves containing sarcophaguses of volcanic stone, coins, decorated pots and terracotta ware featuring theatrical themes.
