Etna is both the emblem of Sicily and its highest point! The volcano's ceaseless activity constantly alters its height, which is currently around 3,350 m. In 1987, a park was set up to conserve the fauna, flora and unique landscape of the volcano which you see from the south slope from Nicolosi, or the north slope from Linguaglossa.
