Directions to Zafferana Etnea
Zafferana Etnea was founded in 1387 and rises to 574 m. above sea level, on the eastern slopes of Mount Etna. Its territory includes beautiful landscapes, from dense forests to expanses of lava desert. It is located midway between the sea and the volcano, in a pleasant area for lovers of peace and nature, a few kilometers from the larger towns Catania (24.6 km), 36.6 km from Taormina, and 13.7 km from Acireale. Zafferana is one of the main stopping points for expeditions to the summit of Mount Etna.
In Autumn the usually a bit sleepy little town comes alive. The Ottobrata Zafferanese is an important event that takes every Sunday of October in the historic center. It is a festival of grapes, bottled fruit, mushrooms, honey, wine and chestnuts. Established in the early eighties as a simple fair featuring local products, the Ottobrata has evolved over time to a complex event, full of different facets, which annually attracts thousands of visitors from all over Sicily and beyond.
