Stromboli is a small island, one of the Lipary (Aeolian) Islands, off the north coast of Sicily. Here is one of the three active volcanoes in Italy. 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. The cone of the volcano has a height of 924 m. The volcano is composed of rhyolites, basalts and andesites and their tuffs. This is a typical stratovolcano. Stromboli explosions often take the form of a batch (every 10-12 minutes) thrown into the air and lapilli, volcanic bombs and ashes. With the cone continuously rises trickle smoke. The main attraction of the island are evening trips to the crater and boat trips to the vicinity of the gully, which over time become more active volcanic lava flows into the sea.
