Crazy nature experience! Rates among the best I’ve ever seen....... exploding lava WTF! Downside a lot of people on the volcano, a little touristy.... BTW you forget all about that the second you feel the earth rumble and the volcano spray rocks in the air.....More

Decided to book the boat trip to the islands including Stromboli as part of our holiday. Although it was a rather a long trip starting at Cefalù harbour and then jumping from island to island couldn’t fault it. The staff in the boat were friendly...More

This place is beautiful, me and my girlfriend went on a 1 day cruise to see the eruptions and the island. Worth the money, it was amazing seeing the eruptions at dusk/night. I highly recommand going there too see this beautiful place.

We travelled by boat on the day trip from Milazzo, via Panarea. Its a long bumpy trip and lots got seasick. Panarea certainly not worth the journey; small with rather touristy feel and the "beach" tiny and dull. Then another long trip to Stromboli -...More

NO, I would NOT advise taking kids that young on this hike, It is quite strenuous, and since you must hike with a guide in a group you must keep the pace of the other hikers. It would not be appropriate or fair to the others... More
