Willy’s photos clearly show how close this volcano is to the city of Catania. This summer my wife Roberta and I visited Willy and his family in Catania and were able to travel to the flank of the volcano and hike to one of its older craters. Luckily for us the volcano was very quiet at the time of our visit. An excursion to this great mountain is a must if you travel to Sicily.
