The Sicilian city of Milazzo is the third largest city in the Province of Messina and has a population of around 32,000. Located around 40 km from Sicily's capital, Milazzo is situated at the base of the peninsular that protrudes into the Tyrrhenian Sea. An important and popular sight in the city is the Castle of Milazzo, the building of which is believed to have been started by the Arabs and then enlarged by the Normans and restored by Frederick II. The castle's walls have round towers on them and also a 14th century Gothic portal. Other interesting sights include the Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the Rock Church of St Anthony of Padua, the Sanctuary of St Francis of Paola and the Baroque Church of the Holy Crucifix.
From the port of Milazzo ferries depart to the Aeolian Islands and Naples.
The small Italian island of Vulcano lies in the Tyrrhenian Sea and is roughly 25 km off the coast of the island of Sicily. It is the southernmost of the eight islands that make up the Aeolian group of islands. The island has a number of volcanic centres, including one of four active, non-submarine, volcanoes in Italy. The most recent volcanic activity on the island was at the Gran Cratere at the top of the Fossa Cone, with the cone having grown in the Lentia Caldera in the middle of the island, and has had around 9 major eruptions in the last 6,000 years. However, since the eruption of the Fossa Cone between 1888 and 1890, which deposited around 5 meters of material on the summit, the island has been quiet. For the brave, visitors are able to walk to the crater of a volcano where you can observe smoke coming out of the ground! Apart from the volcanos the island is popular with tourists because of its hot springs which are only a short walk from the island's harbour.
