Take in the panoramic views from the volcano and over the city of Catania, overwhelmed by an eruption 300 years ago. Take a walk around the lunar like landscape of Crateri Silvestri and visit 3 extinct craters formed after an eruption at the beginning of 19th century.Enjoy some free time to browse the souvenir shops or purchase a refreshing drink before heading back to Catania.
