Once called Therasia, meaning hot and sacred, the quiet island of Vulcano is praised for its natural hot springs and mud baths and known for the Fossa di Vulcano that looms over the island’s northeastern shore. Daredevils can make the 50-minute hike to the top of the volcano for impressive views of Aeolian’s 6 islands framed by billowing steam. For those who prefer to relax in true Mediterranean fashion, retire to your private patio at Therasia Resort for the best views in Sicily, or head to the wellness center for a day of pampering in the indoor seawater pool, sauna, Turkish baths and emotion shower. Bravissimo.
