Depart Palermo and journey across Sicily towards the highest active volcano in Europe. Make your way to Mount Etna and the national park where nature lovers and keen walkers gather to escape their worries in the wilderness.

Arrive at the Silvestri craters on the south slopes of the mountain, 2,000 meters above sea level. Receive an English booklet from your driver to visit the old craters independently, or ride the funicular with a local mountain guide at your own expense and reach an altitude of 2,500 meters above sea level.
