Vulcano is a small island resting off the north east coast of Sicily, surrounded by the Tyrrhenian Sea and is the smallest of the Aeolian Islands. There are many ferry routes departing the port each day, heading to the neighbouring islands as well as the Italian mainland.
The imposing image of a volcano towering above the minute island will long leave an imprint on the memory, especially after scaling the crater and wandering along the black sands that comprise the beach. Challenging trails emblazon the volcanic area, intertwined between an array of hot springs and mud baths – Vulcano’s landscape is as extreme as you can find. The most popular hot spring is conveniently located next to the ferry terminal, tempting visitors to thrust themselves into the action as soon as they step foot on the enigmatic island.
Vulcano may be a wonder in itself, but perhaps the most spectacular view is afforded from the apex of the walking trails, presenting panoramic vistas of the surrounding islands – a breathtaking picture to become the envy of your friends and family. The hikes can be exhausting in the summer heat, so to relax yourself, indulge in one of the mud baths to cleanse your body and mind.
You can cover most areas by foot, though for quicker transport there are also moped rental companies.
Due to the size of the island, the ferry port is very easy to find (and very well signposted).
