Arriving in Vulcano after about an hour.
Just after leaving the port of Milazzo, you will have the opportunity to admire from the boat, the promontory of Milazzo castle built above the old town of Milazzo, probably of Arabic origin. The castles has been developed and improved during the time Norman and Swabian currently declared as a national monument. In 1608, the Cathedral of Milazzo was built inside the castle (now Old Cathedral) and the palace of the jurors. After several years, the castle is back open to the public.


Since the tour offers the opportunity to stay 10 hours on the island of Vulcano, it is possible to focus on the following activities:
Climbing the crater of the VOLCANO following the path; you will have a wonderful view of all
the islands that make up the Aeolian archipelago from the top of Vulcano.

properties (to the right of the harbor), next to a rock of incredible colors from which emerge the
FUMAROLES, the emblem of the island's volcanic activity.
Visit the beautiful bay of SABBIE NERE beach, located on the west side, named for the color of
the sand of volcanic origin. The FUMAROLES BEACH, next to the mud, allows swimmers to stay
in waters heated by bubbles of sulphurous steam that can reach high temperatures.
The solitary and crowded beach of GELSO is located on the opposite side of the Island and is
accessible by sea, by bus leaving from the harbor, or along the main road from the port to
Vulcano, past Vulcano Piano and then GELSO or CAPE GRILLO. Alternatively, you can reach it
