Meet your private guide either on Vulcano Island or the city of Milazzo near Messina. Join your guide for an invigorating and educational hike up the volcano that gives Vulcano Island its name.
Hike all the way up to the crater of the volcano. Learn about volcanic eruptions in the Aeolian Archipelago and the gases that are released when this particular volcano erupts. Find out about how volcanoes develop. Check out the fumaroles of this volcano as you climb up to the peak of the mountain, where you're rewarded with amazing views of the Mediterranean Sea.
Head back down the mountain with your guide and arrive at a casual local bar where you can get something to eat or drink (own expense). Next, give yourself a thermal mud bath – volcanic mud has been credited with healing properties for millennia. Enjoy some more relaxing time on the beach after your mud bath. Notice the hot spots on the beach, which are the result of underwater volcanic fumaroles.
