This is a tender port.
Mt. Stromboli has been in almost continuous eruption for the past 2,000 years.
Stromboli is one of 8 small islands in the Aeolian group in Tyrrhenian Sea. It’s located just off the north coast of Sicily, containing one of the three active volcanoes in Italy. It has been almost constantly erupting in some manor for the past 200 years. Some refer to this island as the "Lighthouse of the Mediterranean".
The two villages San Bartolo and San Vincenzo lie in the northeast while the smaller village Ginostra lies in the southwest.
Most visitors to the island come to climb (or at least hike on) Stromboli Volcano. In most conditions you can hike unaccompanied to an elevation of 400 meters, but beyond this level you will need a guide.
Take a boat ride around the island. The picturesque little village of Ginostra is on the opposite side of the island from Stromboli town and is only reachable by boat. Outfitters near the harbor in Stromboli town offer rides, which can usually be arranged on site.
