Stromboli, also called “IDDU” by the locals, is an eruptive volcano. Just over 900 meters high, sailors have always considered it the lighthouse of the Mediterranean sea, since its “sciara” magma tongue exposed to the North-West was visible from many miles, facilitating navigation towards the Strait of Messina.

The island of Stromboli, thanks to its volcano, offers unique emotions.

Visit the village of Stromboli

From the port, where we will leave you using the dinghy, you can walk through the characteristic streets of the center to reach the central square of the island (Piazza San Vincenzo).

Dinner at the observatory 

From the center of Stromboli you can visit the rest of the town by foot or use the taxi to reach the meeting point with the restaurant shuttle (about 20/30 minutes).

Alternatively, you can reach the restaurant directly by foot (about 30/40 minutes), but be careful, the path is disconnected and sandy.

In alternativa potete raggiungere direttamente il ristorante a piedi (circa 30/40 minuti), ma fate attenzione, da dove finisce il paese il sentiero è disconnesso e sabbioso.
