On our last day in Sicily, we visited Mount Etna, an active volcano on the east coast of Sicily in Catania. As the mountain grew steeper there was fewer vegetation and more ashes and sand. Although we did not summit the mountain, it was very cold and windy at our stop point. The views of Catania below were breathtaking, as well as those looking up the mountain (photo above). After Etna, we visited the rocks of the cyclops in Aci Trezza. According to the legend, these rocks, which sit in the water on the coast of Catania, were thrown by the cyclops to express his rage against Odysseus, from Homer’s Odyssey.
