Myth has it that Vulcano is the sacred spot where Hephaestus, the God of craftsmen, had his private workshop. Here legends have endured throughout the centuries, continuing to this day to evoke the fascination of ancient and mysterious times.
Therasia, the warm islands, is one of the most charming destinations of the Aeolian archipelago due to its fumaroles and wild and unspoiled nature. Not far from baia di Levante rests the famous Pozza dei Fanghi, a lake of spring water available for therapeutic and relaxing treatments.
Enthusiasts of nature walks should know that a 50-minute walk leads to fantastic volcanic pyrotechnics, while several trekking paths allow to explore the hidden spots of this Mediterranean gem, including areas where a simple farm life endures, keeping alive the essence of Vulcano. The natural pool Piscina di Venere is an evocative destination, where the waters take on an especially luminous quality.
The island is also a romantic destination to visit with your other half and enjoy fantastic swimming in the crystal-clear waters of magical shores. Breathtaking strands dot the coast: from the beaches of Sabbie Nere and Porto di Ponente, to Spiaggia del Gelso and Spiaggia dell’Asino, or more yet cale di Mastro Minico and cale del Formaggio. Do not miss a stop in one of these dreamy oases, or a diving and snorkelling adventure to discover the vibrant seabed. The historical centre, instead, is perfect for strolling hand in hand by the moonlight
