The way up there is sandy, it is warm and exhausting for little children, but when you are up there you will not regret it. Usually you reach the summit after sunset, so it is a wonderful spectacle to see these fire and dirt eruptions in the evening glow. It is very windy up there so maybe bring some glasses... More

Stromboli is amazing. However, whatever you do, DO NOT go on a night boat trip to see the volcano with Tar Nav. We paid 62 Euro to be crammed into a boat with hundreds of tourists. There was no chance of seeing the volcano as the deck was totally packed. The greedy operator had sold more tickets than seats meaning... More

Do I really need to say anything?? I'll let the picture speak for itself. If you can, go to the office just by the dock to organise your trip up. Nino was the most fantastic guide and he took us to just the right spot to get that photo.

Stromboli is an extraordinary island! I love it maybe moreover because I study Iddu, the volcano! Stromboli is the wilder island of yhe Eolian islands, but offers so many places to stay, very expansive too. In fact I think that many hotels are too expansive. If you want to stay in more relax and stay with cheap conditions I suggest... More

We stayed on Lipari just for the purpose of being able to do this adventure. We booked with a group that used Magmatrek to guide up the volcano. Regulations prevent people from climbing Stromboli without a guide. The group that we booked through didn't give us great information up front and that is the only downside. The drivers of the...

Did this tour with Magmatrek (located near the main church) We were very happy with the service provided by the guide very professional and safe and reasonably priced. Unfortunately there was nothing happening with the volcano on our tour but you cant book with mother nature so we will just have to try again.

The island is beautifully quiet colourful and relaxed. Besides the active volcano that you can escalate the beaches and water activities are very good. Most of all, the night walks with a flashlight and the silence take you back to childhood memories of the summer holidays spent in remote locations. Loved it!

After the long boat round trip visiting 2 other islands the Stromboli was definitely worth the waiting. It is such a small, charming island with one bigger marina and a little village with cute little shops. The beach is amazing, too, the black sand from obsidian is quite exquisite, I only wish to had more time to enjoy it. The... More

If you're in search of an island that offers a diverse range of things to do Stromboli is for you. My trip these last four days was my second time visiting. My first time was a day trip for lunch, did a boat tour around the island, did some swimming in the warm waters and then back to Milazzo, Sicily... More

From arriving on the boat you pass the amazing Stromboli which is active and is continually throwing out smoke. It is quite a site to behold. Once on the island there is plenty to do - shopping for souvenirs, ice cream shops, supermarkets and restaurants for dinner. Wandering around the little streets with the volcano smoking above you is incredible.... More
