The Silvestri Mountains (Italian: monti Silvestri ) are located in Sicily and are located at an altitude of almost 2000 m at the Rifugio Sapienza at the southern entrance to the cable car to the Etna summit ( Funivia dell'Etna ). The cinder cones were formed during the volcanic eruption in 1892, when a radial eruption fissure opened. The southern cone is called Monte Silvestri Inferiore , the northern one is Monte Silvestri Superiore . The extinct Silvestri craters are all accessible, so that you can walk on the crater floor without much effort. Going into the crater slope requires only light physical fitness.
