Intrepid travellers roam around the tranquil city of Palermo and move towards Etna; they start exploring ancient craters, earth crust, soil, beautiful lava caves formed during earlier eruptions. They explore the recent lava flows while tasting honey and native wine. However, the city is also highly engaging and attracts visitors from across the world to witness the history of famous traditional churches. The old pristine churches are stylish and brimmed with Sicilian Baroque architectural extravaganza; it is astonishing to see damaged and destroyed frescos, stuccos and statues. Some of the chapels are in Renaissance style, and depicts valuable sculptures by Antonio and Giacomo Gagini.
