One of most well-known active stratovolcanoes is Mount Etna. Located on the east coast of the island of Sicily. Also, Etna is the tallest active volcano in Europe with an amazing height of over 10,920 feet (3,329 m). Being an active volcano means that depending on when you visit you may get to see its normal plume of smoke and ash. Imagine yourself standing on the side of an active volcano and looking over the vast blackened ash mountainside through to the bright blue skies and deep blue see of the Mediterranean Sea.
