Its incredible landscape consists of orchards and vineyards; the volcanic soil makes delicious wine. There are a wide variety of exhibitions that take you to the summit and, if you visit in the cooler months, you can go skiing. Guides will speak of the volcano’s fascinating history and its place in Roman mythology. 

If you feel like a change of scenery, a short drive will take you to Sicily’s picturesque coastline. Strazzo beach is filled with smooth rocks, black volcanic sand and several little coves – ideal for rock-pooling and diving. Catania is a long stretch of sandy shore in the shadow of Mount Etna. On a clear day, you can see the peak of the volcano while bathing in the clear blue water.

Catania, an ancient port city, Taormina, a stunning hilltop town and Syracuse, a bustling place with a vibrant nightlife, are all easy to reach. Quality wine, unique Mediterranean cuisine and a diverse culture make this region a great place to go on holiday.
