King Ferdinand I of Bourbon donated “Isola Bella” to the Municipality of Taormina in 1806; subsequently it was bought by Miss Travelyan, who it introduced the first exotic trees and shrubs, which are still an integral part of the island’s greenery today. In the years in which it was inhabited, the island became a meeting place for artists, entrepreneurs and ship owners. Today Isola Bella is the property of the Sicilian Regional Authority. Isola Bella is known throughout the world as the “Pearl of the Ionian Sea”. It is linked to the mainland by a narrow strip of sand, the shape of which is continuously modelled by the sea’s currents and tides.

Mount Etna is an active stratovolcano on the east coast of Sicily, Italy, in the Province of Catania, between Messina and Catania. It lies above the convergent plate margin between the African Plate and the Eurasian Plate. It is the tallest active volcano on the European continent, currently 3, 329 m (10, 922 ft) high, though this varies with summit eruptions. It is the highest mountain in Italy south of the Alps. Etna covers an area of 1, 190 km2 (459 sq mi) with a basal circumference of 140 km. This makes it by far the largest of the three active volcanoes in Italy, being about two and a half times the height of the next largest, Mount Vesuvius. Only Mount Teide in Tenerife surpasses it in the whole of the European–North-African region. In Greek Mythology, the deadly monster Typhon was trapped under this mountain by Zeus, the god of the sky and thunder and king of gods, and the forges of Hephaestus were said to also be located underneath it.
Mount Etna is one of the most active volcanoes in the world and is in an almost constant state of activity. The fertile volcanic soils support extensive agriculture, with vineyards and orchards spread across the lower slopes of the mountain and the broad Plain of Catania to the south. Due to its history of recent activity and nearby population, Mount Etna has been designated a Decade Volcano by the United Nations. In June 2013, it was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites
