We hiked the volcano in the early hour of the day. It's a 50' easy trek to go up and about 30' to go down. Amazing view of the island from the top.

Good shoes, and preferably a walking pole to help climb the rough path. I was not sure-footed enough to complete the walk, but enjoyed stunning views and lovely wild flowers even on the lower slpes.

It takes about 45 minutes to scale the volcano all the way to the top of the crater. It's a delightful hike during which you'll enjoy the vistas of surrounding islands as they open up before you. And it's THE thing to do whilst on...More

Really good hike up the volcano. It took about 30mins to get to the crater. Route is clearly mapped and always busy - can't get lost. Views from the top are amazing! Just don't spend too much time near the steaming gaps, stinks of sulphur

An experience never to forget! About a 50 min. climb each way. The view is incredible and I've seen other volcanos but this one has a special energy. A wonderful atmosphere. Amanda

We stayed very close to Milazzo and decided to go to Vulcano island one day. The boat trip took 45mins. At the harbor the tourist signs are not straight forward thus we walked on the wrong direction for 1mins before we found the right path....More

(Slightly) active vulcano crater easily reachable for most people. Best rounded counter clockwise because then the part with (in principle toxic, but concentration is low) hydrogen sulfide fumes is passed while descending so without heavily breathing. Warm gasses escape from openings in the ground, yellow...More

You do not need to go on a tour for this trip. Just get the local hydrofoil that comes here regularly from Lipari or Milazzo ( I stayed on Lipari which is a cute town and a great base for exploring all the islands) Walk...More
