Mount Etna

Mount Etna, Sicily, Italy

User Rating     : 4 out of 5

As the 2nd most active volcano in the world, Mt. Etna is a very popular attraction for travelers visiting Sicily. The guided tours are an extremely unique experience, but plan on making this an all day trip. Once you make your way to the cable car station, it is about a 25 minute ride in the cable car before a half hour shuttle. While this is an active volcano that has erupted recently, it is not a threat for visitors who stay within the marked areas as the flow of lava from eruptions here is quite slow. The Volcano is quite impressive and the landscape looks like what you would expect if you had just landed on the moon. While you won’t see any massive eruptions or what you might commonly think of when hearing of a volcano, the trip is a very fun experience and is just about as close as anyone will ever get to an active volcano while living to tell about it.
