For all the noise, chaos and scruffiness that hit the visitor at first glance, Catania has a strong magnetic pull. This is Sicily at its most youthful,
a city packed with cool and gritty bars, abundant energy and an earthy spirit in sharp contrast to Palermo’s aristocratic airs
Dominating the landscape of eastern Sicily, Mt Etna is a massive brooding presence.
At 3329m it is Italy's highest mountain south of the Alps and the largest active volcano in Europe.
It's in an almost constant state of activity and eruptions occur frequently, most spectacularly from the four summit craters,
but more often, and more dangerously, from the fissures and old craters on the mountain's flanks. This

cliffs. The site is terribly ancient, dating between the 13th and 8th century BC, and its origins are largely mysterious
although it is thought to be the Siculi capital of Hybla, who gave the Greeks Megara Hyblaea in 664 BC
