Stromboli worths the visits. You can see the fire every 15 minutes and from time to time it erupts out of the crater. From the sea it’s a great view and you can have a 3-4 hours trekking (easy to be organized with local guides)...More

Was excited to visit. The welcome was great and lots of good places to eat drink and be merry. Boat trip to see volcanic eruptions was amazing. My partner made it up to the volcano itself. Experience of a life time. Recommended

I really wanted to summit an active volcano, so we booked two nights in Stromboli near the end of our three weeks in southern Italy. That would allow for both a night boat ride and a night ascent. Or so I hoped. The ferry arrived...More

We took the boat from Tropea to Stromboli leaving at 2:30. It took 1.5 hours to get there and we were expected to be back to the boat by 8. This left time for eating and shopping and was just right. The boat was not...More

We went with Magmatrek after the Volcano Discovery group with which we had made a reservation did not end up scheduling a trip. Save the 10 euros and just book with Magmatrek (which did honor the voucher from Volcano Discovery, fortunately). Our guide was Adriano...More

A guided evening walk up Stromboli is great. As darkness descends the light show really shows up. The eruptions are regular and frequent. The walk down is through deep cold ashes and is similar to walking through powdered snow. A head torch is essential.

To go up the Stromboli vulcano, you have to go with a guide. You can go up to 400m without guide, but then you don’t see the crater. If you go higher on your own, you risk fines! We went up there with ‘il Vulcano...More

Get on one of the boat trips to Stomboli stopping on the island for a walk round then back on the boat back to Massina and if like me you will get the chance to see it erupt as it erupts every night.

I agree that you would be much better off hiring some decent walking boots rather than trying the climb in sneakers. The terrain is quite rough and I thought that decent ankle support was essential. Also when coming down the... More
