Stromboli is unmistakable, with its perfect cone shape and smoky tip, like a kid’s drawing of the ultimate volcano! The island houses two lovely villages, with white houses silhouetted by the contrast of the black rocks and sand. The people that live here are used to having their day paced every now and then by the mountain’s deep rumble. By boat, you get a perfect view of the charming villages and of the famous “sciara”, which in Sicilian indicates the sandy slide formed by the incandescent material ejected by the volcano. The boat needs to stay at a safe distance of course, but you most certainly see the spectacular eruptions rising into the air.
