The volcano is Stromboli.....on the island of the same name. It is still quite active, they had a scare with the thing a few years back. There is Lava running down the side of the thing right into the sea.....It is pretty spectacular. You do have to stay 500 metres off the Volcano and well we weren't particularly keen on getting any closer than that!
There are night time guided tours to the top, we were pretty keen but like I said it wasn't mean't to be this time sadly.
The caves are actually fishing caves, pretty traditional and been there a while....the local fisherman use it to store their nets etc.
I would definitely recommend it Smack, It would be great with kids etc, and the kind of sailing holiday where after dipping rail there is something for the wife as well with museums, art, restaurants, scenery.Chartering was fairly easy through sunsail. We both have our day skipper certificates, but actually in Italy they didn't seem too worry about qualifications at all.
