Wordless Wednesday -Mount Etna, Sicily

We visited Catania, Sicily and an amazing site to see. It was locally called “Mongibello”, Europe’s largest and most active volcano. Its frequent eruptions are often accompanied by large lava flows. We learned for about 500,000 years and is in the midst of a series of eruptions that began in 2013.

Dramatic Eruptions From Mount Etna, Europe's Largest Volcano


  1. We were there in the early 2000’s and Etna had a mlld eruption spewing smoke over everything. I remember we had a white hire car and when we parked in Catania for lunch and sight-seeing it got covered in black ash and when we got back to our hotel in Taormina, the washing we’d left hanging on our terrace was so black that it had to go to the hotel laundry! We didn’t really relax for the remainder of that week and everyone seemed to be on edge.
