    Lots to see and do here. There are shops and restaurants. Interesting buildings. Great for just strolling around and people-watching.

    We took a bus and then a chairlift up. We didn't get all the way to the top, but we had a good view anyway. Worth the time and money.

    Can be Maldives, it could be an island of nowhere in the Indian Ocean… it could be but is not. It is the Italian territory of Lampedusa, just an hour flight from Napoli. The place is absolutely non-European all the way, and it should not be, 155 km away from North Africa.
    On a more pragmatic matter, the sea is green smarald & blue and it is heavienly. Beech fairly regular and I am not keen on Italian style of people sitting on top of each other on the sand. I suggest not taking an umbrella and spend the time just in the water … at the end ne of the day, this is the real attraction!

    I returned to Sicily primarily to visit Zingaro where I had hiked 20 years ago. It is still breathtakingly beautiful. I was able to take two hikes starting at the south entrance which is near Scopello. The entry fee is 5 euros. I was given a good map of the trails in the preserve at the entrance. I hiked on the main trail to the north entrance and returned to the south entrance. With my side trips to the several small coves along the way I covered 10 miles. There are several other trails in the preserve with many more opportunities for day hikes. Wild flowers were blooming in abundance.

    Extraordinary white cliffs that have been carved into a staircase by the wind and sea. It is a gorgeous area with beautiful blue waters. The cliffs are slippery when wet. Though there were people walking barefoot, Shoes with traction are more helpful. Thereis a little difficult approach so you have to do a little climbing to get there. There is free access through a bar which has a steep stairwell leading down to the beach . It is well worth the climb.

    Same as other people, the small beach on that little island wasn't clean (some people partied there and left their rubbish. No one picked them up). The beach is rocky and at the moment you cannot visit the house on the island because it's closed. Not sure why, the sign said it's open but it was closed when we went. The water is very transparent though.

    From the sea in boat is best, but even if you come from land, this is the place to be! We spent one day (from land) and then came twice by boat. Beautiful water.

    Great beach and beautiful water. Just needs more cleaning.

    The council really should have a chat with the people who rent out the umbrellas. There are dozens of cigarettes around each one and they don’t seem bothered to clean. If they make money renting them out and using the beach surely they should clean it!

    Very unique architecture. Nice place to see and many restaurants on the way down from the main road.

    Very nice place and you have to support it. Turtles found in the area are rescued here and then released in nature.

    Amazing caves, so worth to see even though its a bit further from the Siracosa centre. Horrible woman at the front desk, i hope she sees this and reconsiders her work attitude.

    It's a quite extreme activity. I recommend it only for physically fit and healthy people who are not afraid of water, because you have to dive. It's good that a professional instructor was with me all this time - he helped me a lot. The most enjoyable time was on the way back - when you were carried by the flow of the river. But on the way up, you had to get tired crossing the rapids - that's why you have to wear very comfortable (non-slip, non-scuffed) shoes and clothes (they must not restrict your movements). I think the instructor had me wear too much - I couldn't lift my legs all the way up. The water inside the suit was too warm. It felt like a sauna. That was the hardest part. I was overheating, even though the day was not sunny.

    You don't need to go all the way up to have a good view of the city but if you do go all the way up, then you can see the other side too, and if it's sunny, it's very nice.
    From the bottom of the city it's all up until you reach the top. It takes about 45min mini from the entrance to go all up so count more if you're slow or take breaks.
    At some point there is a fork in the road, you can go right and visit the left part as you come down. There is a lookout when you visit the left side, it offer great views of the city and nice photos.

    Stromboli is reliably active, and you are almost certain to see some activity.
    That said it does vary, and it’s luck of the draw whether you see more or less.
    You can do a boat tour to watch it from the sea. Fairly distant, but a good view. Take binoculars. Photography is not easy from a boat, long lenses don’t work well even in a calm sea!
    Or you can do a trek up, I would recommend Magmatrek. You must have decent shoes, preferably walking boots. Take a head torch and preferably a hand torch too. It’s a fair old climb on in places steep rough ground, but never exposed or dangerous. If not used to walking it will be hard work - around 5 hours round trip, of which you are walking for over three and a half.

    You are only allowed up to 400m currently. Quite good views of the active areas, long Len’s and binoculars help, but you can get passable pictures on your phone :-)

    I’ve been to many volcanos. Stromboli is not the most spectacular, but it’s accessible, cheap and safe.

    Donkey trekking with Salvo was one of the highlights of our trip to Sicily. Salvo is great with both young children and adults - he is enthusiastic, very friendly, and makes this experience special for everyone. He took us on a peaceful trekking trip through his large garden, along the way we passed old craters, with Etna in the background. It was a wonderful one hour spent in the nature, as a family, in the company of Salvo and two of his dogs, away from the daily hassle of life. Our children loved the experience, and found it very calming and fun at the same time. Booking was very easy and efficient - we sent a last-minute email (2 days before the trip), Giusa responded very quickly, and luckily was able to accommodate us on the requested day. We all enjoyed donkey trekking with Salvo and would happily do it again!
