Tall columns of lava have since stood here and as the river eroded through the lava it has created a series of impressive gorges. Don’t forget your camera! The next stop is the town of Randazzo in the province of Catania. Situated at the northern foot of mount Etna, it is the closest habitation near the volcano. You will view the famous cathedral made from lava and the bustling Sunday market. From here you will ascend Mount Etna by coach. You will have time for lunch in one of the many cafés or restaurants.
