The small ton is charming and has small restaurants (excellent), a shop and houses for a pleasant explore or stroll. Note the sulphur laden rocks, often used to built walls

If you have at least half a day on the island of Vulcano, be sure to climb to the crater of Vulcano. There is a clear path to the top and around the crater and walking through the sulphuric fumaroles is a unique experience. Hiking...More

We loved the Aeolian islands, however for us this was the highlight. It was a km or so gentle walk up from the port to the start off the path. At first, the walk up to Vulcano seems a bit daunting, however it is relatively...More

We keep coming back as we enjoy the island so much. Very laid back, good restaurants and of course the mud baths to restore aching bones and muscles.

Smelly mud pool, the sandy beach with the bubbling underwater, good restaurants and bars, excellent hotels, interesting sightseeing and lovely beaches, Most of all, peace and quiet. You can also visit other Islands easily and I recommend it very highly - I will be back!

The walk to the crater took us some 30 minutes. Be sure to wear the comfortable shoes, not necessarily trekking. Views from the top are absolutely stunning, especially taking to account the fact, that you are standing on the top of active volcano, where sulfur...More

Stayed overnight at Casa Arcada - clean and cute. Walked up Scalata Vulcano - worth doing with closed shoes, great view. Dinner at La Piazzetta - delicious and fresh tourist menu, wine was superb, staff very helpful with me being coeliac. The island is unique,...More

If you visit Vulcano to make the walk to the top of the mountain, then the trip is worthwhile. Different corners of the small island are interesting, with impressive viewpoints over the other Aeolic islands. Boats take you on a regular basis to Lipari and...More

Our second ascent of the crater - the first was in 2001 - and just as awe-inspiring. The route from the hydrofoil terminal is clearly marked. The ascent is a steady grind, as is to be expected, with the reward of good views along the...More
