Starting from your place a drive to the northern side of our volcano, We will first visit the Alcantara Gorges, with their wonderful waterfall created from an old lava eruption. We then continue the drive through Francavilla, stop at the most charming and unspoiled Sicilian village of Castiglione di Sicilia and take a walk to the old Greek fortress to admire an amazing spot with a breathtaking view over the Alcantara valley. We will drive up, passing Linguaglossa village, and arrive at 1.900 mt./ 7.000 ft. level (Etna north/Piano Provenzana) known for the splendid
