Today, you’ll get to see Mount Etna, Europe’s tallest volcano, up close during this 4x4 tour around its slopes. On the way to the 3,350-metre-tall giant, you’ll pass through the village of Aci Trezza. Keep your camera pointed at the coast, because you can snap some shots of the Islands of the Cyclops. In ancient mythology, these three stone islands were said to be the home of a one-eyed monster that worked as a blacksmith under Mount Etna. You’ll make your first stop on the north side of the volcano at the Sartorius Craters, which date back to an eruption that took place in 1865. You’ll be able to stretch your legs here during a stroll along the former lava fields. Then, you’ll head over to see a more recently active spot on Mount Etna, the site of its 2002 eruption. This outburst could be seen from space, and some of the ash flew over 370 miles south to land in Libya. Afterwards, you’ll then start the journey back to the port.
