Favorite thing: <BR><font color=red size=+1>THE ETNA</font><BR>
You can visit the famous volcano and get very close to the mouth. Wear warm clothes. <font color=red>It's very cold up there!</font><BR>
Following the motorway Messina/Catania as far as the exit for Giarre, you pass the Etna villages of Santa Venerina and Zafferana to a height of about 6.175 feet, where you can admire the Silvestri Craters. From there you can reach the top by cable-car and jeep to the proximity of the central crater (about 9.900 feet). Returning to Taormina via Nicolosi you can see the 1983 lava flow.
