Ancient Greeks thought Mount Etna – the largest active volcano in Europe – was home to the Cyclops. Today, this destination, in the province of Catania, is a major tourist attraction. In the winter, you can ski down its peaks, while in summer, there are many hiking trails throughout the woods. If you’re looking for something more relaxing, you can take a cable car to more than 2,500m (8,202ft) above sea level to see sweeping panoramas. There are bus services that leave from Catania and a railway line to Riposto.
