  • Crater ideal for those with limited time or can't wait the next day to take advantage of the cable car. Located alongside the station point receptive. You can park the car in front and with ten minutes to find me at the top of the crater. Possibility of a good panorama below and good understanding. If you have time would never stop and proceed with the facilities or walk in the top of Etna up to 2,900 meters tall.

  • We stayed with our 3 children and 7 years the silvestri craters. The scenery is very impressive and you seem to be suspended between the old volcanic eruptions and the immense panorama to the sea. The path is very easy although it is recommended to have closed because the soil is too sandy and is slippery. Also should bring (even in summer) a sweatshirt since 1900 meters in height the weather changes quickly. We didn't but it is possible to climb to the Summit of Etna taking funicular and off-road. Unlike the latter, the visit of the silvestri craters is completely free. A must do!

  • A nice morning wandering around the mouths of small craters to 1900 meters above sea level. Pity that the clouds and haze blocked out to admire the landscape to the sea, but at the same time creating an inviting atmosphere, as if the smoke came out from the craters of Etna. It is advisable to have a closed toe shoes and comfortable clothing for sport climbing on the gravel of lava rock. In craft shops bought souvenirs at reasonable prices.
