Sicily’s legendary active volcano rumbles and smokes along the island’s eastern coast, midway between Catania and Taormina. The mountain itself is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and while adventurous visitors can hike Etna’s upper reaches, a ride on the Circumetnea Railway is a more leisurely way to explore the lava fields surrounding the peak. Etna’s lower slopes boast rich volcanic soil bursting with lush vineyards, where you can take some time out for winetasting.
