Again by our jeep we proceed in direction of the Lava tube. Equipped with helmets and flashlights we walk inside a beautiful lava tube (lava cave). We continue to the Silvestri’s Craters and Rifugio Sapienza (2000m a.s.l) before we stop on the lava sand, to observe the last manifestation of vegetables as the “Astracalus” and the “Saponaria” (succulents) and have a walk on the most recently lava ashes.
