The beauty of the Etna Park lies not only in the grandeur of the eruptions and the incandescent lava flows. Around the great volcano there is a totally unique and incomparable environment, full of sounds, scents and colorful colors. A district with an enchanting landscape, protected by a natural park that anyone in Sicily can not fail to visit.

The territory of the Parco dell'Etna , which extends from the top of the volcano to the upper belt of the Etna countries, has been divided into four zones with different degrees of protection: zones A, B, C and D. The Parco dell'Etna was the first to be established in Sicily in March 1987.

Etna in fact is not only the highest active volcano in Europe, but a mountain where there are recent lava flows, in which no form of life has yet settled, and ancient castings on which there are natural formations of Larch, Beech and Birch Pine. To protect this unique natural environment and the extraordinary surrounding landscape, marked by the presence of man, the Parco dell'Etna has been divided into four zones.
