The small Italian volcanic island of Vulcano lies in the Tyrrhenian Sea and is around 25 km to the north of Sicily, and is the most southerly of the eight islands that make up the Aeolian Islands. The island is only around 21 sq. km and its highest point is just under 500 m above sea level. There are a number of volcanos on the island, and includes one of four active, non-submarine, volcanoes in Italy. The most recent volcanic activity is the Gran Cratere at the top of the Fossa cone, the cone having grown in the Lentia Caldera in the middle of the island, and has had at least 9 major eruptions in the last 6,000 years. However, the island's volcanoes have been quiet since around 1890 when Fossa erupted and deposited around 5 meters of pyroclastic material on the summit. The island is also famous for its hot springs which are located a short walk from the harbour. For the brave, visitors are able to walk to the crater of a volcano where you can observe smoke coming out of the ground!
Hydrofoil and ferry services connect Vulcano to the other Aeolian Islands and to Sicily and the mainland. Access from Milazzo in Sicily is convenient, as Vulcano is the boat's first stop from there as they continue to the other islands.
The Italian island of Stromboli is located off the coast of Sicily and lies in the Tyrrhenian Sea and is one of eight islands that make up the Aeolian group of islands. Visitors to the island tend to have three options of things to do. The first is to wander the pretty streets of the island's main village and soak up the lovely views that are on offer, however, the island's crater is not visible from the village. Next, visitors enjoy taking a boat trip around to Sciara del Fuoco which is a deep black lava scar down the side of the volcano, and is a good place to see Stromboli's explosions, especially after dark. The third activity, and not for the faint hearted or the unfit, is to climb the volcano and see eruptions close up!
Some ferry and hydrofoil services from Sicily and the mainland stop at Stromboli. Alternatively travellers can change on the island of Lipari for a connecting ferry. Stromboli is north-east of the other Aeolian Islands, and the hydrofoils from Lipari can take as much as 1 hour and 40 minutes. Services from Messina in Sicily take just under 1 hour and 30 minutes.
