Mount Etna has erupted over 200 times since its first noted eruption in 1500 B.C. Mount Etna is the largest and most active volcano in Europe.
The largest eruption took place in 1669 when the lava flowed over 10 miles. This eruption displaced many people on the island of Sicily. Since that time, the volcano has had many large eruptions and it has remained active since its last large eruption in 2007. Due to its nearly constant eruptions, it is considered the second most active volcano on the planet as of 2015. The most active, Kilauea, is located in Hawaii.
