Stromboli Island

This small island is home to one of Italy's three active volcanoes, continuously erupting for over 2,000 years.

Stromboli is a small island in the Tyrrhenian Sea, off the north coast of Sicily, containing one of the three active volcanoes in Italy. It is one of the eight Aeolian Islands, a volcanic arc north of Sicily. The island's population is between 400 and 850. The volcano has erupted many times, and is constantly active with minor eruptions, often visible from many points on the island and from the surrounding sea, giving rise to the island's nickname "Lighthouse of the Mediterranean". Stromboli stands 926 m above sea level, but actually rises over 2,000 m above the sea floor. There are three active craters at the peak.
