Italy - October 3rd, 2011

This orthorectified image shows Sicily’s roughly triangular shape, separated to the east from the Italian region of Calabria through the Strait of Messina.

The terrain of inland Sicily is mostly hilly. Along the northern coast, mountain ranges of Madonie (2000 m), Nebrodi (1800 m) and Peloritani (1300 m) represent an extension of mainland Appennines. The cone of Mount Etna dominates over the eastern coast. In the south-east lie lower Hyblaean Mountains (1000 m).
