Hard to miss while you are there and you will be glad you checked if off the list. Having said that, you won't be too disappointed to move on either. There are plenty of other things to do on the island (shops, crater, cave etc). The services on sight could use some attention. The mud is luke warm at best.... More

Having been to the thermal baths in Iceland this was a major disappointment. The facilities (changing rooms and showers) was dirty and broken. The bath was like a warm puddle. Not good.

Didn't have time for the mud baths but they're open for everyone to observe. The entrance ticket was only 3 euros. The smell of the sulphur was unpleasant but know that bathing in this mud is good for your skin.. Just be careful not to rub your eyes

This is one of those experiences that you will be grateful for doing but won't want to do again. It offers an experience not like any other. The mud is hot and a bit gritty. Rubbing it on and letting it set then going for a wash off in the thermals in the sea right next to it gave us... More

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
