Stromboli during the day

Hello,

I'll fly to Catania next thursday and stay on Lipari for 5 1/2 days. I will visit Salina, Vulcano and maybe Panarea. Is it worth to spend another day on Stromboli? I don't want to do the night tour, I would visit for a daytrip from Lipari. But I'm not sure if it's worth to go on the long boat ride. Can I see the eruption during the daylight?

best regards,

bima

You can't see the flames during the day (or at least I didn't), and at best if you take a boat around the island - because the activity is largely on the uninhabited side, of course: ou can't see it from where you arrive - you might see ash and rocks tumbling down the slope. But apart from the activity of the volcano, I find Stromboli has a lovely atmosphere, with its tiny little "streets" and lack of traffic: http://wikitravel.org/en/Stromboli

But you are the only one who can establish your own priorities.

Stromboli is surely worth a visit, even during the day.

You might take regular transport, and enjoy a day trek.

Or just enjoy Stromboli itself, walk on your own, the beach, boat with a local...

Well, there is the Ingrid Bergman museum near the church of St. Vincenzo. The many pizza restaurants and lots of touristy shops. The two or three hour boat trip around the island is well worth the €28 each. If you take the tour around the island, There is a stop at Ginostra, known as the smallest working port in the world.

Really it's the volcano, beaches, or sea for Stromboli.
