We did a fine day cruise from Milazzo to Stromboli, with an additional stop in Panarea, in May of 2018, aboard the Eolian Princess. The boat carried about a hundred people, mostly Italians, but with a sprinkling of French and English, and 2 Americans. North...More

We had a tour to the crater, sadly we didn't see anything because of the fog. But the day after we had a wonderful view (and good food and wine) from the Observatorium, with spectacular eruptions every few minutes.

We booked a boat trip from Tropea and went in search of an erupting volcano - we saw no activity but was an interesting place. The black sands are amazing

This was sensational. We got our excursion from Lipari. The group sizes to the top are 20 people (ish), and trust me.... there are a lot of people who do this! The seas had been rough the few days beforehand, so the trip hadn’t run...More

OK I appreciate I’m contributing to the problem but realistically far too many tourists descend on the island of Stromboli. What they come to see is the eruptions which can only be seen from a boat and does not actually need you to set foot...More

It takes 6 hours to go to the summit and back. Experience not to be missed when you are there. The walk is a bit strenuous but the pace is slow and most people people can do it. Seeing eruptions every 5 to 10 minutes,...More

Hi - I can’t help with the tours, sorry. And I’m over 70, so I don’t do the walk up to the view. I love Stromboli though, so you are bound to have a great time.
