There was a small notice about protecting your eyes but nothing about FEET! I went into the little beach with the thermal vents in the water and got scald burns on the soles of my feet - not great as I’m on a walking holiday....More

Terrible, my eyes stung like sulfur was poured into them for two whole days! Surely it takes days away from your life. Mind you there was a tiny sign, but the sign won’t help the tiny sand in your eyes. Quite pleasant to sit in...More

If you are a fan of mud and warm baths, it's definitely worth a visit. At the entrance they offer the opportunity to pay for a shower after the experience - totally recommended, use a lot of shower gel! What I want to stretch out...More

If a smelly mud is your thing don't give it a miss. Your skin will stink of sulfur for hours reminding you that you just did something very unique. Not sure if anyone is tight or brave enough to pay for the mud bath only...More

I think you have to visit the Volcanic thermal mud bath if your in Vulcano. It's an interesting experience that only cost 4 euros each. The thermally heated water is quite hot so be ready for that. It stinks, but most of the Island has...More

Unique experience right by the port. Important to pay extra for a shower afterwards and take a swim afterwards in the very hot sea nearby.

We tried the fanghi on a hot Summer day. It was nice and cheap and we enjoyed it. The soil around the pool can get hot and so is the pool. Some spots are so hot to burn your feet. We went in barefoot. Not...More

Great for spa lovers and those that want to try something unique. I've been to a lot of hot springs over the years but have not been to one quite like this. There's something quite different about sitting in a shallow crater that is filled...More
