SPECTACULAR ETNA.

ETNA  IS THE BIGGEST ACTIVE VOLVANO IN EUROPE, 3,326 M. HIGH. IT ORIGINATED IN THE QUATERNARY PERIOD. OVER THE YEARS, THE ERUPTIONS HAVE CHANGED THE SLOPES OF THE VOLCANO GIVING UNIQUE VIEWS OF LAVA AND ICE. THERE ARE FOUR QUITE ACTIVE CRATERS. IN WINTER IT BECOMES A SKI DESTINATION; IN SPRING  IT BECOMES A MEETING PLACE TO ADMIRE AND SPEND A DAY IN THE  NATURE, THANKS TO THE ETNA PARK AND THE NATURE TRAILS.  

IN THESE DAYS ETNA IS STILL ERUPTING: ASH ON THE NORTH-EAST FLANK OF THE VOLCANO . THE PHENOMENON WAS ACOOMPAINED BY LOUD ROARS AND THE EMISSION OF A COLUMN OF ERUPTIVE CLOUD THAT CAUSED LAPILLI AND LAVA ASH TO FALL  ON THE NORTH –EAST OF THE VOLCANO. THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF GEOPHYSICS AND VOLCANOLOGY OF CATANIA MONITORS THE VOLCANO. ON 21st JUNE 2013 UNESCO DECLARED ETNA ONE OF THE WORLD HERITAGE SITES.
