Vulcano gives its name to all volcanoes, home of the Greco-Roman god of fire. It erupted violently in 1888, giving it its current shape with a very wide smoking crater. This island is characterized by a number of fumaroles and rocks that are brightly colored by the sulfuric gases exhaled by the Earth. The points of interest are many, among them the hot mud pools, used as natural spas, the Cave of the Horse and the Pool of Venus, so beautiful that it carries the name of the goddess of beauty.
