Stromboli, Vulcano island:
The archipelago of the Aeolian Islands consists of seven beautiful islands characterized by a wild and unspoiled nature that offers its visitors new scenarios and breathtaking landscapes. Of volcanic nature, the archipelago boasts one of the most famous islands in the world: Stromboli, the northernmost of the Aeolian Islands, which is home to the most active of European volcanoes. From the Observatory of the Navy, to Punta Labronzo, the frequent and spectacular eruptions of this explosive giant of nature are perfectly visible. A few hundred meters north-east of the island stands the Strombolicchio rock, born from one of the oldest volcanic eruptions ever to the Aeolian Islands and which today shows off its beautiful lighthouse powered by solar energy. The most curious visitors will appreciate the suggestive path that winds through the village of Stromboli among the ancient Aeolian style houses, with essential architectures and open to the outside, up to the Sciara del fuoco, a steep slope that descends from the Stromboli crater. from which you can admire the explosions and the romantic sunset overlooking the sea. For an even more suggestive experience, starting a few hours before sunset from the square of the church of San Vincenzo you climb up to the top of the volcano, accompanied by local volcanological guides, to enjoy the superb spectacle offered by night eruptions. Today, when the ferry arrives from Naples that can not dock at the tiny concrete pier of Ginostra (another name of Stromboli), a small boat “Caronte” carries tourists and their luggage on the ground, repeating a sort of rite of passage from life hectic city to the absolute relaxation of these islands.
