One of the best ways to reach the summit area of the volcano is the track starting from Sapienza Tourist Station, Etna Sud. Trough cable cars of Funivia dell’Etna, you can start from 1900 meters a.s.l and arrive up to 2500 meters. Then it begins a trekking around the 2001 and 2002 eruptive cones. The view ranges from the gulf of Catania to the Ionian coast with Calabria in background and the majestic Valle del Bove as a frame.
