Etna, a world apart

Etna is a world apart with respect to the rest of Sicily. A dark, imposing mass of lava and tufa contrasts with the snows on the peak, which is more than 3300 metres high, and with the green forests that cover the slopes, mainly composed of downy oak, chestnuts and gorse. Loved and feared at the same time, Etna is one of the symbols of the island, protected by the Regional Park.
