Monti Sartorius and Grotta dei Ladroni
Departure towards Etna north and continue on foot. The itinerary goes up the lava flow of 1865 that gave birth to the Monti Sartorius , an eruption that lined up seven button craters and which today characterize the landscape.
It is an easy path, lasting a total of about two hours, obtained on an ancient track used by shepherds which allows you to discover the eruptive systems of the Sartorius Mountains and the most extensive birch forest of Etna.
Visit of the Grotta dei Ladroni: a small lava flow tunnel that opens into a prehistoric flow near the Citelli refuge. According to a legend, it was used in the second half of the 18th century as a refuge by a band of brigands from Palermo. The four, however daring, it seems that they were not assisted by a lucky star, so much so that their criminal enterprises very often ended ingloriously.
