Etna Volcano is about 40 km away from Catania City Centre and La Ville Hotel.

With a volume of 600 cube kilometres and 3,348 of highness, the Etna is the highest active volcano across Europe. There are more than 250 cones, once craters, open in various points. The most famous craters are definitely the "Monti Rossi" open in 1669 and 800 metres high, and the e "Silvestri" ones, open 1892 and 2,000 metres high.

In Etna’s highest point there are four other open craters: Bocca Nuova, Voragine, South-East Crater, North-East Crater, each of them with a diameter of about 250 metres.

In the eastern part there is the "Valle del Bove", born about 10,000 years ago, whose dimensions are 10 km large and 900 metres deep.

The Valle del Bove is the result of a big collapse. Today its geological structure is still visibile from all the eastern side of the Etna.

Reaching Etna from Taormina is very easy thanks to Motorway A18 Catania Messina, exiting Giarre and going up to Linguaglossa the main village in the northern part of the Etna.

There are also many private companies who organize excursions by bus or jeep with pick-up directly in hotel
