Filicudi is one of eight islands that make up the Aeolian archipelago and is located 30–50 km to the north east of the island of Sicily. The island has a few small villages including Valdichiesa and Pecorini Mare. The island is perhaps best known for the production of wine, olive oil, grain and vegetables. The island's highest point is Monte Fossa Felci which is 774 m above sea level and in the 1990's around three quarters of the island was declared a nature reserve.
Popular with scuba divers, the island has many underwater caves ready to be explored. The "Grotto del bue marino" ("Grotto of the Monk Seal") is not far from the "Rock of Canna" (Scaglia della Canna) and is especially popular with divers who are keen on underwater photography. Boats are needed and can easily be hired in the main port. The “Grotta dei Gamberi” ["Cave of crawfishes"] is inhabited by a considerable amount of small crawfishes, sponges, octopus, moray eels, red and black scorpion fish and groupers.
Ferries from Filicudi can be taken to Milazzo and Palermo.
The small Italian island of Vulcano lies in the Tyrrhenian Sea and is roughly 25 km off the coast of the island of Sicily. It is the southernmost of the eight islands that make up the Aeolian group of islands. The island has a number of volcanic centres, including one of four active, non-submarine, volcanoes in Italy. The most recent volcanic activity on the island was at the Gran Cratere at the top of the Fossa Cone, with the cone having grown in the Lentia Caldera in the middle of the island, and has had around 9 major eruptions in the last 6,000 years. However, since the eruption of the Fossa Cone between 1888 and 1890, which deposited around 5 meters of material on the summit, the island has been quiet. For the brave, visitors are able to walk to the crater of a volcano where you can observe smoke coming out of the ground! Apart from the volcanos the island is popular with tourists because of its hot springs which are only a short walk from the island's harbour.
