Etna is not only a volcano. Its surroundings allow us to enter the human face of this complex world, which does not rely on tourism only. The wonderful villages which adorn the dominant mountain offer still-intact vistas which can be discovered by the patient traveller. If you like crosswords, please play with the jewels Etna offers to those who seek to find them. As usual the pictures on this page link to larger photos (about 40 to 100 KB).
