Attractions from Sicily

Attractions from

Etna the volcano (Sicily)
The 3330-m high volcano named Etna dominates the Sicilian scenery. Etna is the biggest active volcano in Europe, and from time to time it is even possible to see lava flowing slowly down the side of the volcano. The last great eruption took place in 1992 when the flaming lava threatened to destroy the town of Zafferana Etnea. Luckily no greater damage was done.
The Greek theater in Taormina (Sicily)
This Greek theater was built in the 3rd century BC, but was later rebuilt and expanded by the Romans. During the months of summer, plays and concerts are being performed here at the theater where the view of the volcano Etna is outstanding.
The town of Syracuse (Sicily)
Syracuse is probably the most important place of interest on Sicily. The town was founded by Corinthian settlers in the year 743 BC, and quickly became a dominating center of power in the Mediterranean. In the year 413 BC, the Athenians attacked the town in one of the greatest naval battles in history resulting in the total destruction and defeat of the Athenian fleet.
