Sicily, Italy, population over 5 million, is the largest island in the Mediterranean and is separated from the "toe" to Italy by the Strait of Messina. Sicily is very mountainous, including the active volcano, Mount Etna which soars to over 11 thousand feet (3.4 thousand meters) near the east coast.
