Excursion 3000 mt

An alternative to the summit craters excursion, is the excursion up to 3000 meters. We go up by cable car up to 2500mt, from here we visit some inactive craters cones, inactive eruptive vents and lava fractures until we reach the Barbagallo craters at an altitude of 3000 meters at the base of the main craters.

Then we descend on foot, until the departure point 1900m, from an ashy canal admiring, in the nice days, a view that sweeps from the Jonian sea coast to the inner of Sicily.  

Fantastic View
