    Sicily is the largest of the Mediterranean islands and has a precious geographical diversity. Its coastline and unspoilt sea-beds combined with fertile volcanic slopes, make it an ideal location for a geography field trip. Be sure to visit Mount Etna, Europe’s largest active volcano, and enjoy breath-taking views of the volcanic landscape from its summit. Learn how the population cope with this constant shadow which both threatens and sustains the farming community. Fishing and tourism play a large part on the island and provide ample case studies for human geographers. With a fantastic climate and Italian hospitality your field trip is guaranteed to be both enjoyable and educational.
