We went with a tour of Panarea and Stromboli, and the sunset cruise past the volcano. We were unlucky and saw nothing more than a few glowing orange flickers.

we took a tour with the Regina Company out of Lipari to Panarea and Stromboli. It sounded just the ticket - an hour in Panarea and three hours on Stromboli with a cruise past the other side of the island to see the volcano eruptions. The boat was already crowded , mainly with Italian teenagers, when it arrived in Lipari.... More

Me, my partner and our friend have been before but we have come back for another go, first climb we did took us to 300 metres and was a challenge but not overly difficult, the climb to 924 metres is a huge challenge but so worth it when you get to the summit above the exploding crater it is breathtaking...

We had an excursion "Stromboli by night". It's a nice trip departing at mid day and returning home around midnight. It's a scene to remember. The island itself is rather small, but lovely and seeing the vulcane erupt at night is something special. It's a nice day out.

During the day, the island is best from the beaches. There are lots of restaurant to visit along the coastline, although it only covers a small area. The black sand beach is interesting to look at but is covered with litter. At night, the island should be seen from the sea. When it is dark eruptions can be seen, just... More

I'm sure it must be great if it does actually erupt while you visit. However, despite what the tours tell you, this may not happen - it didn't for us. There is very little else on the island (as you may expect) and it's a fair way out if you aren't keen on boats! Be warned.

Of course you go up the mountain when visiting Stromboli, and hope to see some of the fireworks at night! Realise that you're never sure, as the top of the vulcano might easily be invisible in the fog (especially when the wind is not from the north). Above 400m you need to be accompanied by an official guide. We went... More

Our tour was operated by SAT group. We left in the morning from our hotel in Taormina and waited for the bus that was LATE. From there we went to pick visitors from other hotels. Finally we left on the ferry together with lots of people that weren't in any excursion. So, from what I understand you can just pay... More

We have been visiting volcanic island of Stromboli previously by the excursion from Sicily, by boat. This time we travelled to Calabria and have seen this incredible Aeolian island from the Italian mainland near Cape Vaticano. The views are undescribable. In mornings and evenings is possible to see the trail of smoke coming up from this Volcano stretching itself over... More
