We went up during a thunder and lightning storm that approached from the west. Totally unique experience, lightning strikes at sea and booming thunder overhead; sulphurous smoke fields above the massive crater, a good walk with fabulous views of the islands.

This is an absolute must if you are visiting Vulcano. The walk up is fairly easy, 45 mins to get to the viewing platform over the crater. You'll need got walking shoes, a stick and lots of water if its hot! The first 500 mtrs...More

We hiked the volcano in the early hour of the day. It's a 50' easy trek to go up and about 30' to go down. Amazing view of the island from the top.

Good shoes, and preferably a walking pole to help climb the rough path. I was not sure-footed enough to complete the walk, but enjoyed stunning views and lovely wild flowers even on the lower slpes.

Really good hike up the volcano. It took about 30mins to get to the crater. Route is clearly mapped and always busy - can't get lost. Views from the top are amazing! Just don't spend too much time near the steaming gaps, stinks of sulphur

An experience never to forget! About a 50 min. climb each way. The view is incredible and I've seen other volcanos but this one has a special energy. A wonderful atmosphere. Amanda

It is tempting to go up early afternoon as many of the few shops and restaurants are closed and there is little to do in the small town.. Try to avoid this as the first part of the ascent is on the baking, black, volcanic...More

We stayed very close to Milazzo and decided to go to Vulcano island one day. The boat trip took 45mins. At the harbor the tourist signs are not straight forward thus we walked on the wrong direction for 1mins before we found the right path....More
