Vulcano Terme is well recognized for the healing properties of its mud & bubbles. People with skin conditions (serious eczema) visit the place for treatment. A few advices: don't put the mud or water in the eye (radioactive); don't keep glasses (sulfure will degrade plastic); and be aware the smell will remain for a few days. Souvenir from Vulcano.

before starting going to the "fango" recommend to rent a bathing trunk otherwise it will "stink" ! recommend to go to the crater , needs approx 1 hour from the harbour, but the view is fantastic ! from Millazzi take the fast boat (Ustica) , after 3:30 hours you go back to Milazzi

The mud bath area called the terme di Vulcano exists because of the volcano which dominates the town and port. It is the reason why the terme is there. Visit the volcano and get a whiff of those sulphur springs gushing out steam which crystallises into yellow sulphur on the hillside. Breathe in the stinking eggshell smell, its not that... More

We have had walked alot and moved luggages around. The hot water helps a bit to release the muscle pain! At the entrance it said closing at 21:00 and we arrived 20:10, the guy said it's closing at 20:30 but he didn't change the sign!! I specially waited an hour for the shuttle bus at my hotel to get there... More

We went to Vulcano as part of a day trip. I read about the mud bath and we were thinking about it. On the boat over our tour guide gave a litany of warnings like don't wear jewelry, don't wear white, etc. I read a little about it in my tour book and it said you will stink like rotten... More

Obviously the smell is strong close by but you do get used to it. WARNING! - there is some areas where hot steam does come out from the ground as you walk around! You can't see them but you will definitely know if you find one - keep flip flops on! There is a paid shower but in all honesty... More

I was here in 1993 and again now. I remember the term as much much bigger at that time and also it was free as fare as I recall. Now you have to pay a small sum of money. It stinks of rotten egg, but is supposed to be good for your skin. They don´t recommend it for people under... More

We went on the island of Vulcano with the main aim to go to the mud baths but everything went terribly wrong. The stench was unbearable! My friend's wife felt sick straight away and could not eat, on the other hand I felt sick, presumably from the stench, only on the last day. When I went back home I continued... More

This is like a big mud bath with thick grey mud. Cost is not too bad - €2 entry and €1 for a shower. Problem is that there's nowhere to change and we were really pushed to get back in time for our boat. We were also warned that the mud stains swimming costumes but didn't have that problem.
