Stromboli

Featured photo of Stromboli

Stromboli is a small volcanic island north of Sicily. It is an almost perfect pyramid rising out of the sea to reach an altitude of 924m, but it is in fact three times higher since the base of the volcano lies 2000m below sea level. It belongs to the Eolian Islands, a group of several volcanic islands, some active, some extinct: Vulcano, Lipari, Salina, Panarea, Stromboli, Alicudi and Filicudi. The ultimate site about Stromboli is stromboli.net.
