This is the perfect combination of exploring Mount Etna in a four-wheel drive with discovering Sicilian pleasures.
After marveling at the mountain you will stop at a winery, for a lunch of traditional Sicilian dishes and local wines.
As you eat and drink, think back on the strange black fields of molten and frozen stone. Consider the wonders of this ever-changing mountain, which the Greeks believed to house the furnace of Hephaestus.
You will learn much about it from your geologist guide — but no one can ever know all its secrets. After all, a god always keeps his mystery. You can be grateful Hephaestus let you visit.
