Eolian Islands, Italy

The Liparian Islands (also called Eolian Islands) lie in the north of Sicily. They are all of volcanic origin. The island Stromboli with the always active volcano is the northernmost island of this archipel and very fascinating. We visited these islands in October 1996 and 1997. I was always interested in volcanos but since that time I fell in love with them. Climbing up an active volcano and observing the eruptions at night is a unique and fascinating experience.
