It is easier and cheaper to get to the summit at Vulcano than Mt Etna - one is free and use your legs to get to summit (40 min walk) and the other took us a car parked (fee), chair lift (fee), a 4WD bus/...More
We tackled the mountain in the early afternoon, hoping for the cloud cover that had rolled in most afternoons of our stay in Lipari. No cloud, but a cool breeze took much of the sting out of the sun. The walk is medium difficulty, make...More
It took us three hours to hike from the ferry to the crater rim, past the sulferous gas vents on the left hand side, up to the top and do the rim walk back down, and back to the port. That included two 15 minutes...More

It's many years since I footslogged the 300 metres to the top of Vulcano island so 25 years later I was determined to do it again. Volcanoes can be fascinating places and, although dormant, this one is may people's idea of what they should look...More
Make sure you have good shoes, water and sun protection. There is a bar at the bottom. Great for refreshment.
Do not go close to the fumes, they are poisonous. Do not attempt do descend into the crater - it is strictly forbidden.
What can I say? It's a walk up a real living, breathing volcano! It's not a hard or a long walk, but if you do it in summer, it can be hot if you don't do it earlyish morning or late afternoon. The path up...More
