Vulcano (20 minutes from Lipari by hydrofoil) greets all visitors with its strong smell of sulfur. According to Greek mythology, Hephaestus, (the god of fire and volcanoes) worked as a blacksmith on this island, assisted by the Cyclops. After arrival, we will walk around the small village, also named Vulcano. Then we head to the beach to view the mud pool of Acqua di Bagno, a thermal bath fed by hot springs and located near the Faraglione, a rocky hill filled with sulfur. During the summer the "mud baths" are a very popular destination for day-trippers.
