Social events

We are delighted to be taking NanoSEA 2016 delegates on a social excursion to Silvestri Craters, located on the Etna Sud slope at 1900 m: the highest point reachable by car on Mount Etna. Mount Etna is the highest active volcano in Europe: with a height of 3.340 m. above sea level. Now, it is UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Silvestri Mounts are two inactive craters formed after the eruption of 1892. The second social event will be a dinner at "Cantine Nicosia" in Trecastagni, at the foot of one of the extinguished craters dotting Mount Etna (nearly 700 m above sea level). Before the social dinner, all the attendees are invited to a guided tour in the wine cellers (cantine, in italian) of the restaurant to learn about wine making followed by a tasting of a large selection of Sicilian wines. For not alcohol drinkers a variety of soft drinks will be served.

During the excursion we suggest to arrange your clothing in layers (onion's skin) and we recommend to bring: a raincoat (even in summer it could rain), comfortable shoes to walk on irregular ground and sun glasses.

The Social excursion and dinner are planned for the afternoon of Wednesday the 6th and are included in the registration fee.
