Allesandro_campo used a DJI Mavic Pro 2 drone to create this fantastic aerial video of the Italian island of Sicily.  The video is focused on the island's coastline outside of its major towns and cities.  Sicily's coastline varies tremendously over its length, and it is home to some of the most world's most distinctive-looking beaches.  As you'll see in the video, the Sicilian coast runs the gamut from sea caves to secluded cove beaches to lighthouse-tipped rocky points; all makes for a beachgoers' and boaters' paradise.  

Sicily's Explosive Volcano


Welcome to Hell - Drones over Etna


Sicily's Mt. Etna is one of the earth's most active volcanoes.  In the 1990s, it was added to the list of 'Decade Volcanos' by the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior (IAVCEI). This project was initiated by the United Nations to prepare for disasters created by volcanoes; Etna was selected due to its recent activity and the risk presented to nearby residents.  In this aerial video, drone pilot Haussmannvisuals provides a rare look inside the colossal landmark.

Italy's Island of Fire

For a first upload to AirVuz, brand-new contributor AIRWORKS brings us this excellent drone video from the Italian city of Ragusa.  Ragusa is situated near the southeastern tip of the roughly arrow-shaped island of Sicily, the largest in the Mediterranean Sea.  Over three thousand years old, Ragusa is part of the historical area known as the Val di Noto, which covers approximately the southeastern third of the island.  Most of the city was rebuilt in the Baroque style after it was devastated by an earthquake in 1693.  

Pantalica: Ancient Sicily


Pantalica: Sicily Before History


Sicily is not only the largest island in the Mediterranean, it's also one of the oldest in terms of human settlement.  Archaeologists believe that it may have been settled as long as 12,000 years ago, long before most areas of Europe.  In this video, contributor and drone pilot armandoWDN gives us an aerial tour of Patalica, an area in the southeast corner of the island, near the city of Syracuse.  Pantalica is the site of the Necropolis, a cemetery which is thought to hold as many as 5,000 graves.

A stretch of Sicily's eastern coastline shows the continuing power of ancient Greek mythology to hold our fascination.  It's the area north of Catania (the Italian island's principal commercial center), just east of Mt. Etna.  Seen from above in this drone video by AirVuz contributor g-fly_it, the area sometimes referred to as the Cyclopean Riviera gets its name from the Cyclopean Islands, the area's most distinctive natural feature; the tiny islets feature prominently as the home of the mythical cyclops in the works of Homer.

The Italian island of Sicily will forever be associated with the Godfather trilogy, Francis Ford Coppola's masterpiece of organized crime.  The book from which the screenplay was adapted had scenes in the town of Corleone, but this was too developed by the early 1970's when the first installment was filmed.  Instead, filming took place in Savoca and Forza d’Agrò, in the Messina province.  Behold these magnificent Sicilian towns in this awesome drone video by contributor jone_83.

Vulcano, Aeolian Islands




North of the massive Italian island of Sicily is a series of smaller islands known as the Aeolian chain.  Like Sicily, they were formed by volcanic activity and are comparatively young in geological terms.  In this drone video by rubens_monti, you'll get a bird's eye view of Vulcano, the southernmost of the Aeolians.  It's located about 25 km (around 15 mi.) north of the northern coast of Sicily in the Tyrrhenian Sea.  The island's three volcanic centers have been inactive since the late 19th century.

Ghost Town (literally)

Livyu FPV...

First person view (FPV) pilot Livyu FPV found an ideal place to fly his racing quad: an abandoned town on the giant Italian island of Sicily.  According to the pilot, the area was abandoned after an earthquake in the 1960’s.  It has very restricted access since the site is so fragile, but he walked right in when the gates to the area were open. Once spotted by security he asked if it would be ok to fly.  As you’ll see he was able to secure his five minutes of freestyle, bando heaven.
