Nicolosi and Zafferana Etnea are Etna’s gateway towns.

Without an interest in trekking, drive the loop on the volcano from Nicolosi to Rifugio Sapienza, and depart via Zafferana Etnea.

Walk the Silvestri Craters at Rifugio Sapienza, and take the funivia for stunning views.

Siracusa is 79 km from Nicolosi and it would take 01h03to drive. Nicolosi is 19 km from Rifugio Sapienza and it would take 00h25 to drive. Zafferana Etna is 19 km from Rifugio and it would take 00h24 to drive. Siracusa is 98 km from Zafferana and it would take 01h10 to drive.

Enjoy!
