Go on the top of the vulcano...
Go on the top of the vulcano Etna! It was one of the most beautiful sites I saw in Sicily and definitely most exciting!! We arrived on the top of Etna by a small terain bus, which drove us almost in the lava itself. It wasn't that close, but it was still a wonderful experience to see lava running down the hill just a few meters a head of you!You can see the picture of it on the left, where I burned my snickers(they melted), because it was so hot!! But beside the lava, there was also a lot of interesting vulcano stones-a lot of different colours!! There were also the people who made ashtrays from lava-that was quite an interesting thing to see, because they were selling this ashtrays for 20$ at the bottom of Etna and here a man made in like 20 seconds!
Take a walk through the city
You'll hear me say this as a top suggestion whenever you are visiting a new place. There is no better way to experience a new place than on foot. Take a walk around town and take notice of the architecture. If it's one terrific thing I can say about Catania, it's that from many places around town you can also capture Mount Etna in the background of many things you'll want to take pictures of.
If you like street vendors, you'll see plenty of them in Catania. Although many of them sell fresh procude, some sell novelties as well.
The black village
The moment I arrived in Catania, my reaction to what I saw was: "what the ***, let's get out of this place." What looked revoking, turned out to be the most interesting place in the mediterranean area!
Houses look black from former eruptions of mount Etna. The city centre radiates friendlyness. You can find a most bizar vibe in the city.q
