Why You Should Visit Mount Etna

It’s one of southern Italy’s most significant landmarks.

Not only is Mount Etna gorgeous and exciting to visit, its legend and influence are integral to the history of Italy. This is because, the ancient Greeks who controlled the island believed that the imposing volcano was the home of the legendary one-eyed monster, the Cyclops.

It was featured in Homer’s Odyssey and played a central role in various myths as the home of both Vulcan, the god of fire and metalworking, and Typhon, a 100-headed monster. Despite being a place of some particularly fearsome legends, locals have found many pragmatic uses for Etna
