Etna

[ultimate_heading main_heading=”The Hotel organizes excursions to see Etna and Gorges of Alcantara” heading_tag=”h1″][/ultimate_heading]

Venetico Marina is almost in front of the beautiful Aeolian Islands, but it is not even far from Etna, the highest volcano in Europe and UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2013.
Etna stands out in north-eastern Sicily and has been active since ancient times; it is currently about 3330 meters high, extending over a perimeter of about 210 km and covering an area of ​​1600 square kilometers. During intense eruptive activities, lava can escape from hundreds of craters on the sides of the volcano, collected in over 260 eruptive systems. An active volcano without equals in Europe, Etna is a formidable tourist attraction, both from a natural, cultural and scientific point of view. The whole region of the volcano is a very varied world of different natural environments. A tour in Sicily can not miss this fascinating monument of Mother Nature. It overlooks the Ionian sea to the east, while to the west and southwest it is bordered by the river Simeto. To the north it is bordered by the river Alcantara, that digging its bed, produced beautiful gorges, the so-called “Alcantara Gorges“, which together with the Botanical Park are the main points of interest of Terralcantara. All this offers a magical atmosphere, in which time seems to stand still and whose landscape, rhythm and sounds are all given by the slow pace of the waters flowing along the ancient basaltic lava columns dating back over 100,000 years ago.

Worth seeing:
 the Sentiero delle Gole (Path of the Gorges): views from the top of the Gorges, descent to the river, walk on the riverbed toward the entrance of the Gorges and return by elevator; the Trekking Fluviale, to discover enchanting landscapes, under the supervision of qualified river assistants.
You will experience the thrill of walking on top of an active volcano and breathing deep mountain air. And all this just a few kilometers from the sea: the nearby seaside villages offer in fact other charming landscapes to explore.
