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.

Rinella Guide

Rinella is a small Italian village that is located on the island of Salina which is one of the Aeolian Islands. The island's full name is Santa Marina Salina and lies around 120 km to the north east of Palermo and 70 km to the north west of Messina. The island is well known for its black sandy beaches and its caves and also for its square which was used as a filming location for the movie "Volcano".

There are three areas on Salina: Santa Marina on the eastern coast, Malfa to the north and Leni to the south west and from Leni heading down to the coast is the village of Rinella. Located above the village of Leni is Valdichiesa in the island's centre. Other small villages on Salina are Capo Faro, Pollara and Lingua.

The village is home to the island's port where ferries can be taken to Palermo and Milazzo on the island of Sicily.
