Vulcano is a small island and we only spent one night. The crater walk was the main highlight but the mud baths are also something to try. Girlfriend and I covered ourselves in the mud and took lots of funny photos. Sure it stinks and the smell does not vanish quickly either. I can still smell sulphur on my swimming... More

My partner wouldn't go in as it was April and the water was cold though the mud at the bottom was hot. I put it all over my face - the promise of youth too much. I say you have to do it and I loved it, though 3 days on my skin still smells a bit of sulphur (bad... More

Thermal baths, excellent therapeutic properties specially for dermatological problems and rheumatism. Amazing location, very relaxing atmosphere. I will definitely recommend visiting. See video for visual description. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZNCRIItASo

While appreciating the fact it's a live volcano island, I almost passed out with the sulphur smell (or is it stench?). After months since we visited, the clothes we wore on that day still smell of sulphur, even though we washed them endless times and with varying temperatures. On the high side, my wife said that her skin was softer... More

everything about Vulcano kind of amuses me. First the name, then its pungent odors wafting over to you as the ferry pulls up - you're like, hm maybe not… Just go ahead and do it, but be prepared to throw away your clothes afterwards. When we went there was no one else there, despite our guidebook's promises of 'glitterati' visiting... More

From the time you arrive by boat at Vulcano, the closest of the Aeolian Islands to Milazzo (only a 45 minute trip), you get the strong smell of sulfur. At times it's almost overbearing, but then this is a living volcano. Walking to the summit to see the crater is possible, but come prepared with adequate hiking shoes. About half... More

had the opportunity to come to the island and take a mud bath. the boat ride was about 45 min. once you get to the island you instantly catch a rotten smell, but soon get used to it. time for a mud bath? bring an old bathing suit as the mud ruins every bathing suit. walk in the mud, relax,... More

A must to do in volcano. Bring disposable clogs and clothes that you may never wear again. Wonderful while primitive.

If you're on a small island with a thermic bath, this is of course something you must do. Especially when it's cheap to visit. It was fun being in the mud, and feeling the warm bubbles rising up below. Be careful how you sit, it may get quite hot on some places. You get a bubbling feeling in the skin,... More
