We are flying to Catania on Saturday for a week for my 30th! Have just heard the news about Mount Etna! I know this is a very 'how long is a piece of string' question but do these eruptions usually last long? eg in the past have they lasted weeks or longer? Would the airport be closed a long time or does life continue as usual? I heard it was shut today!
Does the whole island shut down or just Catania airport! Sorry very general questions but worried now! :(
