Aeolian Islands



The island owes its name to volcanic activity that has developed over millennia. Is the only active volcano on Stromboli together. Arriving on the island, he is amazed by the splendor of the place both by the strong smell of sulfur, due to the 'fumarole', exhalations of steam, sulfur and carbon dioxide coming out from the crater or from cracks in the ground. Is suggestive Faraglione reach the summit of the East, where you see Vulcanello. Island is connected by an isthmus of sand and lava that created two bays. To the east you see the natural pool of hot mud near the pond here is the 'fumarole' submarine, which warm shallow water in some places stony. Very characteristic is the black volcanic sand and very fine. To visit the island the best way is to rent a Vespa. Moving a bit more inside, we remain fascinated by the contrast between the aridity of the volcano and streets surrounded by green forests, vineyards, pastures. Do not miss the tour of the crater. The climb looks reddish rocks and plants of broom, until you arrive on a large plain dark. The arrival of the crater arouses strong feelings on the one hand you can admire the expanse of sea, clear and transparent, the other a mountain alive, emitting fumes. To visit the beaches, uncrowded, separated by lava promontories that jut into the emerald sea, a wonderful and very jagged coastline, full of beautiful caves created by lava flow, so many plays of light and presence of hot water. The island offers a lot of fun for the young, the night comes alive with joy in dancing, for the pre-disco young people gather at the Castle.
