Let’s talk about Etna. First of all, it is the tallest active volcano in Europe, currently 3,329 m high (but the height of its summit changes with each eruption), and it covers an area of 1,190 km2, with a basal circumference of 140 km. A wonder of nature like this can only inspire the myth: in Greek mythology, the monster Typhon was trapped under this mountain by Zeus and a legend states that the philosopher Empedocle threw himself into the crates, to show people that he was a god.

Mount Etna is one of the most active volcanoes in the world and it is in an almost constant state of activity. Due to this interesting activities, in June 2013 was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Another cool thing to know? Etna offers skiing in winter and fascinating hikes in the woods during summer!

Apart from the great mountain views, there are numerous great areas to visit in Sicily. You can tours to discover suggestive temples and ruins that have been carefully preserved because of their historic significance. You can also pack swimming costumes since the weather is excellent most of the time. However, for you and your family to get the most out what Sicily has to offer, you need to make the necessary accommodation arrangements. Find out where you can stay by checking out potential holiday homes in Sicily. Generally though, the best accommodation for visitors in Sicily is either rental apartments of villas. These are equipped with the necessary facilities that you need for convenient stay in the area within a specified duration. After all, not many people come to Sicily for a day or two unless they are on a business trip.

Villas are by far the most family friendly option in terms of affordability and facility provision. Some beautiful villas in Sicily have a standard pool that is convenient for a family set up. The well kept gardens are also an excellent opportunity for a young family to spend time together and explore nature while bonding. Families can organize for outdoor picnics as well as outdoor games when they settle on villas for their best accommodation, and the space is enough for children to play and run around without getting in the way of other visitors.

However, villas are more suited for longer holidays. If you are on vacation for a month or more, then a villa will suit you and your family better. Villas give you an opportunity to lay back and enjoy the scenery as you take in the locality and learn the languages and lifestyle….
