Discover Etna Italy

Mount Etna is undoubtedly the most striking feature of the Sicilian landscape. Rising up to 3,350m, it is the highest active volcano in Europe. From Catania, continue to the Rifugion Sapienza, where you can start the climb up the volcano to the Philosopher's Tower (2,920m). The walk will probably take you just over five hours in total, as the path is uneven in places. But those who make it to the top will be rewarded with stunning sea views, well worth the tough climb.
