Stage description

N.B.: We don't have an English description of the stage just yet. We'll give you the German version for now until the English version is ready.

Dort weiter geradeaus auf den Pfad 768 (Richtung Belpasso - es müssen ca. 200 Metern entlang der Strasse S.P 92 überwunden werden) bis zum Monte San Leon. Nun der asphaltieren Straße in Richtung Nicolosi für ca. einen Kilometer folgen (Als E1 markiert). Links auf eine weitere Straße abbiegen, die an einem mittelalterlichen Kloster vorbeiführt, in dem sich die Büros der Ätna-Park Verwaltung befinden.
