The contrast between the sea and the fiery top of Etna could not be bigger: during this tour, entirely dedicated to Etna, you will get to know the different sides of the universe that is Etna volcano, Europe's largest and most active volcano: Etna's ancient pillow lavas at the spectacular "Cyclopes Coast", deep gaping craters, lava deserts, lush mountain forests, lava caves, the beautiful Alcantara gorge, scenic Taormina and medieval villages and - hopefully - lots of lava await you.
