Lipari and Vulcano, a Trip to Two Pearls of the Mediterranean Sea in Italy

I like volcanoes and volcanic islands.
I used to live in Kos, from where I guided an excursion every week to Nissyros to visit a crater and a small town there.
Now I live in Lanzarote famous for its Timanfaya Natural Park with its 300 volcanoes (I wrote about its lunar landscape here).
And I used to live in Sicily, which is itself a huge volcanic island, living at the feet of the Etna was amazing. Now it erupted again… In 2014 it happened too, we were there with my team on the top of the mountain and we could experience it LIVE.


However not only on Sicily can you find volcanic activities in that area. From Sicily you can visit the Aeolian Islands, which are created by volcanoes (Stromboli and Vulcano).
