We did a boat trip to the Aeolian Islands from Taormina initially wanting to go to Lipadi but due to bad weather had to choose another island. If there are storms no boats will go out. The islands are just beautiful and a little like Santorini. Stromboli is quite remarkable when viewed by boat at dusk when you can see... More

Unfortunately there was not an active lava flow that could be accessed the day we sailed there. We sailed around the island and had great views of the vulcano. Worth the visit.

We have planned this trip to Stromboli for months and were very disappointed when we found out shortly before our departure that the guided treks to the summit was closed due to recent eruptions. We decided to still go and we’re so glad we did! Stromboli village itself is a storybook little village with wonderful people and we absolutely LOVED... More

I fully agree with a review of Soleil, which I had on my phone during the climb. I'll write shortly - if you do not hike or climb, you might get scared off. If you do have some mountain experience, there's nothing there to surprise you. The hikes above 300 m are still banned, with some 500eur fine, but we... More

We walked up in the dark with head torches. The path is well defined, although steep. Take water. A head torch or equivalent is essential, along with decent shoes. The view was great and we stood in the pitch black and watched the lava for a long time. We came down carefully, but did see a few other people with... More

This was a great experience - it's not every day you get to see a live lava flow and to swim in bouyant water beneath it. we travelled as part of an organised day tour, booked online through Viator. The boat was clean and tidy and not too full. We chose by chance to sit outside at the back, as... More

We walked up at night, even though the tours were not allowed to go above 290 feet. At that height you could see and hear the lava flowing over the edge of the crater. It was amazing.
