Variety is the spice of life. You make the decision whether you wish to hike 2.5 hours to the top of Vulcano for spectacular views of the Med or stay behind at the spa and take a dip.
Keep things interesting by opting for a dip in a sulfur pool, it may be smelly but this distinctive mud bath is often touted for its rejuvenating properties.
If a sulfur pool isn’t your style, you can opt for a swim in the salty waters of the Mediterranean instead.
Bring euro in case you want to purchase some gifts only available on the Aeolian Islands. Please note the following: the mud has a very strong sulfurous odor, bring an older swimsuit as the mud may stain and the smell is almost impossible to remove.
We also recommend bringing a change of clothes along with a plastic bag for your muddy suit.
Deadline to register is August 17!
