You are immediately greeted with the strong smell of sulfur when you arrive on Vulcano, the seventh of 7 islands. It’s not a problem, it’ll get you used to it quickly and it won’t bother you when you leave the island.
First, go hiking to the summit. Here you will have a truly amazing view. You can see the entire island and its 6 sisters from this point.
If the sky is clear, you can see the Tyrrhenian coast Messina quite clearly.
Although the trail might seem difficult at first, it is easy to climb the summit of the volcano with patience. Avoid the heat and remember to drink plenty of water. If you have the opportunity …. they’ll be very useful.
You can hire one of the many available vehicles for your tour around the island: a bicycle, quad, quad, Mini-Mokes, a car, or cab.
You will feel relaxed and your skin will thank you for it.
You can take a walking tour of Vulcanello, Cape Grillo and the Grand Crater, or an island boat tour that stops at Vulcano Gelso and Grotta del cavallo. Also, you will be amazed by the fumaroles in the alum caves, as well as the hot underwater springs where you can enjoy Island mud baths with excellent therapeutic effects.
