Map of the island

The Aeolian island shave provided the science of volcanology with examples of two types of eruptions ( Vulcanian and Strombolian ) and this have featured prominently in the education of geologists for more then 200 years.
Stromboli, one of the few permanently active volcanoes on earth, is the most northerly of the aeolian Islands.
The active craters are in permanent activity, which has been going on for many centuries, and which usually consist of small eruptions taking place at different intervals, with explosions of fragments of incandescent lava and variable quantities of ash up to some hundred meters above the mouths.
Here the map of the island with treks.
