Stromboli Guide

The small island of Stromboli is located in the Tyrrhenian Sea, just off the north coast of Sicily, Italy. The island is one of the Aeolian Islands and is the location of one of three active volcanos in Italy. For visitors to the island there are a number of things to do. You can stroll through the main village on the island and take in the lovely views. Alternatively, Stromboli is the perfect location for a boat ride around the island. From the sea the volcano is clearly visible with its steep black, lava scared, side. Finally, and this is for the more active, and perhaps brave, visitors, you can actually climb the volcano and get a much closer look at the crater and the eruptions.

There are some ferry and hydrofoil services from Sicily and the mainland that 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.

Messina Guide

Messina is an Italian city and is sometimes referred to as 'the door of Sicily' and lies on the Strait of Messina in the north east of Sicily. The city's port has played an important role in the city's growth and fortunes and supports tourism for the city and surrounding area and is also home to commercial and military shipyards. Since 1548, Messina has been a Roman Catholic Archdiocese and Archimandrite and is also home to the University of Messina which was founded in 1548 by Ignatius of Loyola. A popular tourist attraction in the city is the 12th century cathedral which guards the remains of King Conrad who was ruler of Germany and Sicily during the 13th century. Following a huge earthquake in 1908 the cathedral had to be almost completely rebuilt between 1919-1920 and then again in 1943 following a fire that was caused by Allied bombing during the Second World War.

Ferry services from Messina operate to one of two ports in Calabria (Villa San Giovanni and Reggio Calabria) or on a longer ferry ride to Salerno, just south of Naples.
