Fiume AlcantaraThe Alcantara Gorge
Catania

Many torrents spring from Nebrodi Mountains in the north of Etna but the big volcano conveys all them in two rivers, Simeto and Alcantara, flowing into the Tirreno and Ionio seas.

Formed by the volcanic activity of the famous Mount Etna, the stunning basalt formation known as the Alcantara Gorge lies on the Alcantara River about twenty minutes drive south west of Taormina. During the summer, when actually the river is more similar to a torrent, visitors are permitted to bathe in the cool, refreshing water that flows through the amazing rock formations taking in this remarkable spot of natural beauty.

Parco naturale della Riviera dei Ciclopi/The natural park of Cyclops Riviera
Catania

In the sea, in front of the fishermen village of Acitrezza you can admire the Faraglioni, stunning basalt formations, that according to legend were thrown by the Cyclops Polifemo on Ulyssesí ships escaping from the island.

Etna


It is the highest volcano in Europe -11000 feet above sea level - It is still active and is only 600000-year old !!

Going up from the coast the view changes, from basal formations modelled by the sea waves, to the mountain, with vineyards, fruit trees, until the woods of walnuts, pines, chestnuts, oaks and birches.

Above 2300 feet a.s.l. the lava rocks replace trees and vegetation and are covered with snow in the winter.
