Eastern Sicily Nature trip


On your trip to Etna, you will travel by luxury car to reach the cable car station at 2000 meters a. s. l. , where are the well-known Crateri Silvestri born after the eruption in 1892. Nearby you will find the restaurant Cantoniera, destroyed during 20 minutes by lava in 1983 and two years later again rebuilt. Here you can take the cable car, climb aboard a 4wheel drive bus and wind your way up to the summit at 3000 meters a. s. l. If you are afraid of heights or simply don't want to go to the top, you can walk around extinct craters (Crateri Silvestri), have a look at the souvenir shops or enjoy a cup of coffee in one of the local bars surrounded by stunning views. Later we'll drive to Alcantara Gorges, where in the mist of time, a small volcano north of mount Etna woke and poured forth an enormous quantity of lava which flowed down to the sea and beyond, to form Capo Schisò.
