The Sciara del Fuoco is ideal for appreciating the view of the 4 natural elements: the fire of the volcanic products; the earth of the Sciara; the blue sea water and, not to be underestimated, a very pure air that carries the brackish sea air.

On the edge of the Sciara you will hear nothing but explosions, followed a few seconds later by blocks and volcanic bombs rolling down the slope. Listen closely to this rolling, trying to catch the moment when the blocks fall into the sea.
