    Stop At: Craters Silvestri of Mount Etna, 95030 Nicolosi, Sicily Italy

    La loro formazione risale all'eruzione del 1892: questa ebbe inizio il 9 luglio con la formazione di una frattura radiale, e quindi di una bottoniera[1] di cinque crateri, fra quota 2025 e 1800 m, sul versante sud dei fianchi del vulcano[2]. Durò 173 giorni percorse circa 7 chilometri, fino a lambire i Monti Rossi dal lato orientale, fermandosi poco al di sopra di Nicolosi, a quota 970 m s.l.m.

    Duration: 5 hours

    Stop At: Valle Del Bove, 95019 Zafferana Etnea, Sicily Italy

    La Valle del Bove è un'ampia conca che si trova sul versante orientale dell'edificio vulcanico dell'Etna, all'interno dell'area protetta del Parco dell'Etna, nel territorio del comune di Zafferana Etnea (CT).

    La formazione di tale depressione viene fatta risalire a 64.000 anni fa a causa del collasso dei centri eruttivi del Trifoglietto I e del Trifoglietto II, predecessori dell'Etna. Lo sprofondamento dei due crateri formò una caldera profonda 1 chilometro e larga 5 chilometri. Il cono vulcanico del monte Etna attuale si sarebbe formato a nord-ovest dell'unità del Trifoglietto II circa 34.000 anni fa.
