My friends and I visited this island on the second day of my arrival in Panarea. Stromboli contains one of the three active volcanoes in Italy. The volcano has erupted many times and is constantly active with minor eruptions often visible from many points on the island and from the surrounding sea. The last major eruption was on April 13, 2009. A significant geological aspect of the volcano is the Sciara del Fuoco, a big depression generated in the last 13,000 years by several collapses on the northwestern side of the cone.
Once there we decided to hire a small boat and discover the beauties of the coast line. Unfortunately that day I could not snorkeling and so I missed all the fun but I managed to appreciate the Sciara del Fuoco and admire the strenght of nature. We were 4 of us and paid 15 euro each.
