Picnic lunch and ascent of the Cratere della Fossa in the afternoon.
An excursion which is like the fusion of a pleasant walk and a real trek. We begin with a walk along easy paths, lined by rich vegetation, full of the characteristic smell of gorse; then, as the path becomes steeper, we will find ourselves amongst red-coloured rocks lining the twisting path, until we arrive in a dark and bare clearing.
But the real spectacle is to be enjoyed once we reach the top of the volcano: a view that captures the whole of the Aeolian archipelago! From here it is possible to admire the whole island and her sisters, like emeralds placed on a cloth of blue velvet.
Being on the Cratere della Fossa is an experience which is not easy to describe, because of the continuous emissions of smoke, hissing noises and the heat that the volcano emits.
Dinner in a restaurant and overnight in an apartment (residence).
