Islands - Lipari, Stromboli, and Vulcano islands, Mediterranean Sea

Back to Map 

Visited: Early July and Mid September

A trio of islands stretching from the north coast of Sicily towards Naples, with a fascinating range of volcanic features alongside classic Mediterranean landscapes. There's plenty of good walking on each of the islands. Volcanically speaking, Lipari is fairly quiet, Vulcano has steaming fumaroles, hot mud pools and springs near the beach for bathing, while Stromboli is still being made, with sometimes frequent lava explosions.
