Parco dell'Etna

Area: Catania and Etna

Etna is the symbol of Sicily: it is the highest active volcano in Europe, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Its continuous eruptions, its lunar landscape, its craters, the lava flows, the lava caves and the depression of the Bove valley have made Etna a privileged destination for lovers of nature and sports.
Along the slopes of the volcano, the particularly fertile lava soil has favored the birth of excellent agri-food products.
Etna is also culture, tradition and legend.
