Stromboli was known in antiquity with the name of Strongyle, the rotunda. Its volcano is always active and reaches 920 meters in height. The crater area is made up of 3 active cones whose volcanic activity is mainly explosive, with the throwing of lapilli and fragments of magma. The lava flows are channeled into a large steep basin towards the sea called Sciara del Fuoco. Stromboli is the only volcano in Europe and one of the few in the world in permanent eruptive activity.
As soon as you land at the port of Stromboli, Punta Scari, you are immediately struck by the beauty of the island with its long sandy beach and white houses on the mountain.
