#Repost @whitealmondsicily with @make_repost 🙌👏🏻 #andreascarpignato ・・・How about a Volcanic Train journey? This time last year I received a phone call from a research team for UK Channel 5 who were due to film “The Worlds Most Scenic Railway Journeys” in Sicily. I was scheduled to meet them there last April and then Covid came along and both Italy and U.K. went into lockdown and filming was postponed. Filming went ahead later in the year but unfortunately I was unable to get to Sicily. I can see why Sicily was chosen as a destination. When you drive through the small towns of Mount Etna you might find yourself having to stop at many railway crossings most of which are operated by hand, the little train that comes tumbling past is the Ferrovia Circumetnea train which has been going around Etna since 1895. The Circumetnea is a narrow gauge railway of 110 km that starts in Catania and ends in Riposto, the railway circumnavigates Mount Etna. It passes through scenic and rural landscapes with Etna's summit forever visible throughout your journey. It’s the perfect alternative way to enjoy Mount Etna's beauty. The 110 km long route climbs up the slopes of the volcano showing its passengers onboard the beautiful scenery of Mount Etna, its citrus orchards, valleys and streams, lava flows, small towns and breath taking countryside.
