Set on the eastern coast of Sicily, Etna is the tallest active volcano in Europe, with thousands of visitors every year. In 2013 it was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its “exceptional level of volcanic activity”. The most common route leads to the Rifugio Sapienza at the south of the crater. From the refuge a cableway runs to an elevation of 2,500 m. The lunar scenery of volcanic rocks and black sand is one the most sensational in Italy.
