World-Famous Volcano

If you only know the names of a handful of volcanoes, chances are one of them is Mount Etna. This famed volcano of Sicily is the tallest active volcano in all of Europe. It is also the largest of Italy's active volcanoes. As one of the most active volcanoes on the planet, Etna is often "smoking," which makes it a popular attraction--albeit, from a safe distance!

As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Mount Etna attractions tourists from all over the world. If you are brave enough to hike close, you'll even see houses that have been nearly submerged in lava on the volcanoes slopes.
