The small village of Rinella is located on the island of Salina, or Santa Marina Salina to give it its full name. Forming one of the Aeolian islands, it is around 140 km to the north east of Palermo and 70 km to the north west of Messina. Known for its caves and black beaches, and its square which was a filming location for the movie "Volcano", Rinella is also home to the island's second port.
The island is divided into three regions/towns. Santa Marina is on the eastern coast, Malfa is to the north and Leni is in the south west of the island. Rinella is located down towards the sea from Leni. Located above the village of Leni is Valdichiesa in the island's centre. Other villages on the island include Capo Faro, Pollara and Lingua.
Ferry services from the small harbour depart to Palermo and Milazzo on the island of Sicily.
The Italian island of Stromboli is located off the coast of Sicily and lies in the Tyrrhenian Sea and is one of eight islands that make up the Aeolian group of islands. Visitors to the island tend to have three options of things to do. The first is to wander the pretty streets of the island's main village and soak up the lovely views that are on offer, however, the island's crater is not visible from the village. Next, visitors enjoy taking a boat trip around to Sciara del Fuoco which is a deep black lava scar down the side of the volcano, and is a good place to see Stromboli's explosions, especially after dark. The third activity, and not for the faint hearted or the unfit, is to climb the volcano and see eruptions close up!
Some ferry and hydrofoil services from Sicily and the mainland 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.
