Vulcano and Lipari


Vulcano is, apart from Stromboli, the Eolian island with the most recent volcanic activity (eruption of 1888-1890). It offers the most spectacular crater and fumaroles. Vulcano and its close neighbour Lipari have in common a history of explosive eruptions producing rhyolitic lavas such as obsidian. Both can be reached in a day tour from Stromboli.
