Vulcano Guide

The small Italian volcanic island of Vulcano lies in the Tyrrhenian Sea and is around 25 km to the north of Sicily, and is the most southerly of the eight islands that make up the Aeolian Islands. The island is only around 21 sq. km and its highest point is just under 500 m above sea level. There are a number of volcanos on the island, and includes one of four active, non-submarine, volcanoes in Italy. The most recent volcanic activity is the Gran Cratere at the top of the Fossa cone, the cone having grown in the Lentia Caldera in the middle of the island, and has had at least 9 major eruptions in the last 6,000 years. However, the island's volcanoes have been quiet since around 1890 when Fossa erupted and deposited around 5 meters of pyroclastic material on the summit. The island is also famous for its hot springs which are located a short walk from the harbour. For the brave, visitors are able to walk to the crater of a volcano where you can observe smoke coming out of the ground!

Hydrofoil and ferry services connect Vulcano to the other Aeolian Islands and to Sicily and the mainland. Access from Milazzo in Sicily is convenient, as Vulcano is the boat's first stop from there as they continue to the other islands.

Panarea Guide

Panarea is an Italian island that lies off the north eastern coast of the island of Sicily and is the second smallest of the Aeolian islands which are a group of volcanic islands. The island is popular with tourists who go there to enjoy its beaches and lovely scenery and for a small island, it is surprisingly well equipped. San Pietro on the island's east coast is the landing beach for the island and is also where most services and facilities are located. There is also a small port that caters for ships, hydrofoils, fishing vessels and pleasure boats.

Among the beaches on the island are Cala Junco, in the south of the island and is accessible both by sea and by land along a path that leads to the beach. Along the road to Cala Junco you can also reach the beach of Cala degli Zimmari. These are the only two beaches on the island accessible by land.

The small port accommodates ferries departing to Napoli and Milazzo.
