Vulcano

Description

In ancient times, Vulcano was considered by Greeks as an island sacred to Efesto (god of volcanos) because it was supposed that in the fire island gods forged their weapons. Because of the intense volcanic activity, the island was not supposed to be inhabited since quite modern times.
The island of Vulcano is made up of three volcanic units: Vulcanello (123 metres) in the north, coming from an eruption during II century B.C., it is linked with the island by a strip of land made up of lava flows. In the middle, you can find the Gran Crater or Vulcanic Cone (385 metres) which is stll active; in the south there is the Mount Aria (499 metres), inactive, it is the top summit of the island.
Vulcano is a very interesting island due to its volcanic and post-volcanic phenomena.
The islands of Vulcano counts around 450 inhabitants who are involved in tourism and viticulture.
