Waiting for the volcano in Stromboli Island

stromboli island 3Stromboli si very similar with Panarea Island I was telling you in another post, only bigger. Is famous for its active volcano and most of the trips sold to Stromboli are sold with the image below. I kind of waited for the big explosion, but it didn’t came. You know how the hope dies last. Oh well…next time. In fact, the most touristic attraction of Strombili is the trekking until the volcano (around 3 hours) to enjoy the specific views and receive as a bonus a possible explosion. All safe, no worries.

Every corner I find something new to marvel and admire. A tree full of flowers, a cute house, some forgotten stairs, a lazy cat annoyed you passed on her street and disturbed her.
