Catania Etna Tour | Guided Tours in the most beautiful places in Sicily
Catania is one of the most beautiful port cities in Italy located on the east coast of Sicily. It is located at the base of Etna, the famous volcano today still active crossed by trails coming up to the top.
Choosing our Catania Etna Tour you can discover the history of the volcano and how it changed the surrounding landscapes. Like all other volcanoes, Etna was formed over the millennia with a process started over 600 thousand years ago. The friction between the euro-Asian and African part caused the first underwater eruptions and thus formed the first volcanic cones.
Thousands of years ago it was precisely the strait of Messina that made a barrier to the terrible tsunami of Etna towards the Mediterranean. It is still unclear whether the disaster was caused by an earthquake or a simple eruption. The largest eruption was in 1614, with over 1 billion cubic metres of lava. During this period there were many lava caves, which are now open to our Catania Etna Tour, such as the cave of frost and the raspberry cave.
The longest eruption of the 1991th century was beautiful 1991 in the direction of Valle Del Bove. The numerous volcanic activities of Etna have changed in history the surrounding landscape, and often the populations that lived around the volcano found themselves in situations of great danger. On 21 June 2013 UNESCO declared the Etna Heritage of Humanity.
