Etna Tour 5 Hours

crateri silvestri

Etna Tour 4 /5  Hours From Catania Terminal Cruise or Catania Town 

You will feel like you are on another planet: around you, red rocks and layered black lava. Climbing Mount Etna, the Mediterranean scrub and the vineyards in the valley give way to a barren and sci-fi landscape. You will reach the Upper Silvestre Crater: from here you can also see the Gulf of Catania!
Etna is the highest terrestrial active volcano on the Eurasian plate. It has been declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco. You will climb to its summit through vineyards and valleys made of layered lava. At a certain point, you will find yourself in a "lunar" landscape where the predominant view will be the volcanic òava accumulated over the centuries.
At about two thousand meters high, you will reach the Silvestri Mountains, two inactive craters. The lower crater is easily accessible and one can also enter inside.
You can also try the excursion to the upper crater. It is more tiring and requires a little climbing, but it is worth it: once at the top, you will see the lower crater with its reddish colors and, in the distance, the Gulf of Catania.
The tour ends with a panoramic visit of the historic center of Catania, piazza duomo and the emblem of Catania with its symbol the elephant, brings good luck
