A small island on the Tyrrhenian Sea, Vulcano is part of the Aeolian Islands archipelago. In Roman mythology Vulcano was the god of fire, and Romans believed that this island was his workshop, due to the high presence of raw materials such as sulphur and alum.
Today tourists come to the island to take advantage of the hot mud baths and fumaroles, great for treating rheumatism and skin conditions. The beaches of fumaroles and the Black Beaches are highly recommended destinations for people who want to bath in the therapeutic warm sea. For these reasons Vulcano was awarded the Blue Flag in 2014.
In addition, Vulcano provides lots of attractions such as the spa resort, geothermal pools, shopping centre and an energetic nightlife.
