Hotel “CORSARO” sits at an altitude of 2,000 metres on highest volcano in Europe: Etna. The origin of the hotel dates back to the 1940s, when buses and travel agencies discovered Mount Etna. The Corsaro restaurant became a fixed stopping point along their Grand Tour of Sicily. Later, the restaurant expanded into the hotel of today. The Corsaro family stood up to the volcano’s temperament, fighting against several eruptions in the last twenty-year period, despite the prevailing view that the south side of the volcano is the ’safe’ side. The most devastating for the hotel was the eruption of 1983, which destroyed the entire original building. In 1985, reconstruction of the hotel began, which was completed in the 90s.
Hotel “CORSARO” is immersed in the fascinating landscape of Etna Natural Park and UNESCO protected zone. It is located just 300 metres from the cable car, chairlift and ski-lift. Hotel “CORSARO” is an ideal base for excursions to the top craters and for winter sports activities. Recommended by the most prestigious tour guides as a friendly stopping place for people who wish to visit the volcano, to ski in Sicily, or to view the most unique landscape in the world, while at the same time enjoying comfortable rooms and delicious home cooking.
