Etna - Silvestri Crater

Unsure of Bondi's chances at catching snow again as we travel on, I took him back up Mt Etna, it being only 16km or so straight up from Massalargia B&B to the Etna Sud ski area.

We discovered the Silvestri Crater, one of a row created by an Etna eruption in 1892.

The wall chart below gives some idea of Sicily's amazing topography, with Etna dominating the entire northeast of the island.
