During the tour we will discover its landscapes, extinct craters, its ancient and recent lava flows and we'll go inside a spectacular lava caves, with helmets and torches. The day will continue with the visit of the lower west side of Etna, home of the green gold of Bronte, the pistachio! The west side is one of the most "tasty" of Etna, with 1% of the world production of pistachio offers typical sweets made entirely with this dried fruit. After lunch break in Bronte town, based on typical seasonal products an pistachio dishes, we will see how and where this surprising culture resists to the volcanic soils, apparently unproductive and inhospitable.

The passion for nature and outdoor activities, ever since I was a child, has led me to become a hiking nature guide (AIGAE).
