The volcano to live for all year
On the eastern coast of Sicily, a short journey from the Strait of Messina, lies the UNESCO World Heritage site Mt. Etna: the Sicily's greatest natural attraction and also its highest mountain. Furthermore, it is one of the world's most active volcanoes, and the most active one in Europe. The height of its summit changes with each eruption, and although over the centuries a few lava flows have reached the coast, it is one of Sicily's main tourist attractions, with thousands of visitors every year. Mt. Etna offers skiing holidays in the winter months and breathtaking hikes in the woods during the summer.
