Directions to Crateri Silvestri
The Silvestri Craters are situated below the top of Mount Etna and they are certainly the most visited part of the volcano. Do not worry, they are not active anymore.
They are very easily accessible. If you are driving go up to the Rifugio Sapienza, which is the highest point you can reach on Etna by car, and then just simply walk from the parking area to the Silvestri craters which are formed of two main craters along with other few of a smaller size. They all originated from the massive eruption in 1892.This just shows how immensely destructive the power of Mother Nature can be! To be honest, this is how we imagine the planet Mars looks like :-)
The Silvestri craters are very good for children as they can run in complete safety around, down to the bottom and back up.
Fancy something more adventures, get on the cable car and start some serious exploring adventure. You will soon feel the Etna breathing and moving under your feet.
