Etna with its 3340 meters is the highest active volcano in Europe, and offers a picturesque view of the sea to the Gulf of Taormina and the Aeolian Islands.
How many localities can offer you the adour of strolling under the summit of an active volcano? Filling your lungs full of pure mountain air, observing the magic of a moonlit landscape and visiting at sun-set, fiery torrents of lava?
It’s all only a few kilometers away from the seaside; just the time it takes to remove your hiking shoes, and the near-by marine villages offer other suggestive scenery to explore, putting on this time instead, a diving mask to admire the lavic depths of the Ionic Sea.
Exploring the pathways of the senses, don’t miss the occasion to solace yourself with Almond or Lemon Italian Ice, which every Sicilian bar-man knows how to serve with pride, while you are enveloped by the essence of fermenting must, citrus blossoms or jasmine and juniper blossoms, according to the season.
